    snippet:
    "When I first came here I was very scared. I'm glad the government agreed to reopen my case," Herrera said.


    snippet:
    Government lawyer Terry Bird said a hearing will be held on a petition filed by Thompson to establish permanent residency for his wife. Herrera's lawyer, Charles Kuck, said he expects the hearing will be held in the next two to four months.

    Kuck claims that Herrera was duped by a man handling her immigration requests and that she never received the immigration notices.


    My comment : I think she should stay as she is now married and my bias
    here and I take responsibility for it...she is educated and middle class ,plus Colombia is a dangerous place as well.


    Morally speaking I would never ever want a newlywed couple split up during their first year of marriage(important year) and hope she gets released on bond...imho.

    Congratulations to the newlyweds and pray their first year of marriage is a blessing

    If she was so well educated, how did she get duped?
    She should still go through the route of legal citizenship.

    Professional dupers are good at what they do.

    I thought marriage is one route of legal citizenship.

    Why is the Hearing on her residency necessary then?

    She got in illegally?

    Everyone has to go through a hearing. For spouses, they ask stuff like, "Are you really married?" and "What color are the toothbrushes?", etc.

    Yes, and route is the key word. It's the fast track to a green card (legal immigration status), but it does not bestow citizenship.

    That's correct. Citizenship can be applied for after a certain number of years of residency (it used to be two, I believe, and it may still be).
