Teen in immigration detention months before graduation

Scores of illegal immigrants face deportation every year in Texas, with many of them children or teenagers. Now, one Colorado teen is receiving a significant amount of support from his community as he awaits his own deportation proceedings. The young man is currently being held in immigration detention, just months before his scheduled graduation from high school.

Teen immigrant gets green card thanks to pro bono lawyers

It may seem impossible for a teenage immigrant who independently crossed the U.S. border to successfully stay in the country, but one boy's success story has proved to many Texas residents that just such a situation can occur. A 16-year-old boy has been granted a green card after fleeing his native El Salvador at age 12. The child told authorities that he was running away from a forced gang initiation, and he wanted to search for his father.

Man avoids deportation because of sick son's condition

Should the illegal immigrant parent of a seriously ill child be forced to leave the country? Such questions are encountered in jurisdictions throughout the U.S., including Texas. In one recent case, a Honduran man has been allowed to stay in the country after immigration officials were informed that he must undergo genetic testing. The reason: His genes could hold the answer to treatment protocols for his seriously ill son. The 26-year-old man had faced a threat of deportation after being arrested in January because of traffic violations.

Pregnant women may have special immigration detention rights

A pregnant immigrant from Honduras said that immigration officials shackled her and forced her to board a plane bound for Texas from California just days before she gave birth. The woman, who had crossed the border illegally, said that she was sexually assaulted in a Mexican town. She tells a horrific immigration story involving kidnapping, abuse and substandard medical care. However, the woman was released on humanitarian parole because of her pregnancy status.
