Police Officer's Widow Faces Possible Deportation

In a case that is unfortunately reminiscent of a case I previously handled involving the widow of Army Spec. Alex Jimenez who went missing in Iraq in 2007, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is about to deport the window of a police officer who was killed on his way home from protecting and serving the people of the Bay Area.

Dorota Lamoree, a newlywed, was married to her husband David Lamoree three weeks prior to his untimely passing. Shortly thereafter, while dealing with the grieving process, U.S. Immigration Services informed her that she had to leave the country and if she doesn't that she could be deported at any time.

Her late husband's family has indicated that they support her attempts to remain in the United States, and the family has sought Congressional intervention. Senator Dianne Feinstein, as well as other members of Congress are aware of the problem. We can only hope that they act swiftly to correct this injustice.
