From the Document: "H.R. 739, 'For the relief of Median El-Moustrah,' would provide the beneficiary of this private bill, Mr. El-Moustrah, with an opportunity to obtain lawful permanent resident status in the United States. Median El-Moustrah was born in Lebanon and has lived in the United States for nearly 30 years. In 1993, he was granted conditional permanent residence based on his marriage to Ms. Patricia Stack, a U.S. citizen. Shortly after obtaining such status, the couple began having marital problems, separated, and divorced. Mr. El-Moustrah's petition to remove the conditions on his permanent residence was denied and he was placed in removal proceedings. He was ordered removed in 2011, after an immigration judge determined that he failed to overcome the statutory presumption that his marriage was not bona fide. On June 4, 2007, Mr. El-Moustrah married his current spouse, Ayda Mehri, a U.S. citizen, and became stepfather to her three U.S. citizen children, who are now grown. Mr. El-Moustrah is part-owner of a gas station, which serves as the primary source of income for his household. On April 26, 2018, Mr. El-Moustrah was scheduled for removal by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), but removal was suspended at the direction of the ICE Field Medical Coordinator. In November 2019, Mr. El-Moustrah was detained by ICE, but was released in March 2020 due to his elevated risk of serious complications resulting from exposure to COVID-19 [Coronavirus Disease 2019]. Since January 2013, Mr. El-Moustrah has been granted successive stays of removal, most recently on August 11, 2020, for a period of six months. He is currently enrolled in a monthly telephonic check-in program with the ICE Field Office in Detroit."
