His side of the story: Mr. Abraham-Joseph was born in the United Kingdom (and)...arrived legally in the United states at the age of 7 under an H-4 visa. He remained in the United States until June 2005, when he departed for approximately one month to visit the United Kingdom. He returned to the United States under a valid H-4 visa on July 22, 2005...

Unfortunately, in 2006 Mr. Abraham-Joseph lost his legal status through no fault of his own.
It was certainly his fault if that's when he bought the gun to school. H4-visas are for the spouses and children of foreigners in the U.S. on work visas. Presumably, he was able to get the 2005 H-4 because at least one parent was able to prove they were still working the in the U.S. However, if he was only 14 years old as of 2006, it was up to his parents to ensure that his business was taken care of!

Mr. Abraham-Joseph has three US Citizen children, a lawful permanent resident mother and four siblings that are either US Citizens or lawful permanent residents...
Then why did he slip through the family net -- because of his gun conviction as a juvenile and the drug conviction at the age of 22?

Mr. Abraham-Joseph has no criminal convictions or charges under state or federal law and is free to seek relief from removal in immigration court. ICE provided incorrect information to the press when it claimed he had a criminal conviction.
That is incorrect information: ICE is NOT under any legal obligation to recognize expunged charges if they believe they're serious enough.

Mr. Abraham-Joseph has a pending U visa application...filed as a result of being the victim of a deadly shooting in 2013. That visa was filed in 2017 and remains pending. When granted, the U visa will afford him lawful status in the United States.
Quote: was Savage’s 21st birthday (2013)...(when) he...was shot six times. He is cagey about recalling the incident, but later, when he’s out of earshot, one of his friends quickly shares with me the version of the story he’d always heard...a (drug) deal turned into an attempted robbery...

In 2014...he was caught driving with 22 grams of weed, 89 pills of hydrocodone, a Glock .40, a Ruger .9mm, $1775 in cash and a scale “recovered on the middle console in plain view.”
So not even 22 grams of weed, 89 hydrocodone pills and four years could cure him of being so traumatized he can't change his nationalities?

Remember how we used to talk about busting out? We'd break their hearts together...forever...

You and me and our old friends / hoping it would never end / holding on to never say goodbye...
