Immigration law: Doctor receives news of deportation order

Many individuals have traveled from other countries to live in various areas of Louisiana and other regions across the country. Those who are unable to obtain a green card may be faced with the possibility of deportation, and since immigration law can be complex, they might be uncertain how best to approach the situation. A doctor who has lived and treated patients in another state for as many as 18 years has recently been notified that an order for her deportation will soon be enforced.

According to reports, the woman came to the country seeking refuge from her home, which she claims posed a threat to her life. After the passing of her sister, she chose to go into medicine to help others who need medical attention, but cannot afford to obtain it. Witnesses say the woman has helped a multitude of others throughout her 18 years in the state.

Upon graduating from medical school, her student visa expired and she decided to pursue a work visa. She says she was advised to apply for a national interest waiver, but her application was denied. While appealing the decision, she reportedly discovered that she was filling out the wrong application. After a six year period of applying for citizenship and going through appeals, she received an order for deportation, and as of this month, can no longer obtain a stay.

Facing deportation can be a stressful and daunting process, and those who find themselves in a similar circumstance could find it beneficial to seek guidance as soon as possible. By speaking with an attorney with experience in immigration law, those individuals affected in Louisiana could obtain advice on the best course of action with which to proceed. An attorney can thoroughly examine the situation and assist a client in pursuing the best outcome possible through the necessary channels.
