Watauga, Texas – The case of two North Texas sisters, facing deportation to Serbia after living in the U.S. for 25 years has been reopened, as reported by the Dallas Morning News.
Ollie Snyder is quoted in the report as stating of she and her sister’s plight to remain in the country, “We still have hope… We still have a chance that the Board of Immigration Appeals in Virginia could approve it.”
The sisters have reportedly been trying to obtain green cards since 1985. Snyder is further quoted as stating, “We’re not trying to go under the system or around the system… We’re wanting to do everything right. We’re wanting to comply.”
Dallas immigration lawyer Nicolas Chavez is quoted as stating of assistance received from politicians such as Rep. Michael Burgess, “They could have some influence with the Department of Homeland Security… That’s the department that’s in charge of executing any orders for deportation.”
