60 MINUTES TO RUN STORY ON WIDOW PENALTY

Rate this Entry

CBS' 60 Minutes is running a story on a little known, but very serious problem in US immigration law:


FOR BETTER OR WORSE - Foreigners who marry Americans are
entitled to become permanent residents of the U.S., but in a stricter
post-9/11 world, hundreds of widows are being asked to leave the
country because their husbands died - even some whose children were
born in the U.S. Bob Simon reports. Robert Anderson is the producer.


Some of you may remember my writing about this in posts here and here.

    Pretty pathetic! Hopefully the Obama Administration will change this.

    Saw the story on CBS last sunday. Pretty sad. Who are these Immi officials and lawyers that keep on appealing court orders? More importantly who gives them the green light to waste taxpayer money on these issues? Looks like there are enough antis in the bureaucracy that need to be booted along with the Bush administration.
