"Mr. Caceres fled to the United States from Honduras after suffering rape and torture by gang members on account of his sexual orientation. In July, an immigration judge determined Mr. Caceres was entitled to protection under U.S. law and granted him withholding of removal, a form of immigration status for people who have suffered or fear persecution in their native countries. However, after NIJC attorneys won his case, the government continued to detain Mr. Caceres, claiming it intended to deport him to an alternate country, even though Mr. Caceres has no connection to any other country and thus could not be deported elsewhere. Mr. Caceres filed a habeas petition in the district court in Wisconsin arguing that he was unlawfully detained. Before the court ruled on the petition, DHS released him."
