Under current law, the death of a spouse can result in an Order of Removal if the spouse dies before the completion of the processing of Permanent Residence. If the marriage took place less than 2 years, the surviving spouse is removed.This situation has resulted in the exclusion of spouses and their children and also parents and grandparents, which is cruel and callous. Some courts have taken a beam of light to the corrupt bureaucracy slow processing times, which have resulted in painful separations not withstanding that the marriage was celebrated in good faith.Last week, a federal judge ordered the INS to reopen the cases of 13 immigrants who were denied their residence because their spouses died. We hope that the new administration create a remedy for these wrongs in the near future.
