Radiowala v. Attorney General

Seeking to escape the murderous wrath of a Mumbai mobster, Indian man enters the U.S. on a visitor’s visa with his wife and two children. Over the next 20 years, he has two more kids and builds a successful business that enables him to be the sole provider for the family and put his kids through college. Yikes! He’s arrested during a routine traffic stop, and the gov’t seeks to deport him. Board of Immigration Appeals: Sure, it would be difficult for his U.S. citizen children if he were deported, but it wouldn’t be substantially more difficult for them than what one would expect in such a situation. And he’s 19 years too late to seek asylum. Send him back. Third Circuit: Indeed.
