Judge Wayne Iskra, with the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., granted Manuel Bartsch's request to allow him to stay in the country at least until he can have a hearing before an immigration court, Bartsch's attorney, David Leopold, told The Associated Press.

Bartsch will remain jailed at least until a bond hearing scheduled Wednesday in Cleveland, Leopold said.
