Immigrant freed after judicial ruling

CONCORD, N.H.: An immigrant from Cuba living in New Hampshire has been freed from federal custody five days after an immigration judge ruled that deportation proceedings be dropped against him.

Victor Gonzalez-Triana was granted permanent residency on Jan. 2 and received his “green card” in the mail. The judge ruled Jan. 10, but Gonzalez-Triana was still being held in an ICE facility in Massachusetts. The ACLU of New Hampshire filed a lawsuit requesting his release.

Gonzalez-Triana came to the United States in 1994. He’s been a business owner in New Hampshire. He was detained by ICE in September for falling out of immigration status, and while detained he applied and was approved for permanent residency. AP
