Aggie Fighting Deportation Order-Family Trying Since 1992 To Get Permanent Residency

23 December 2007 at 9:18:17 AM

Interesting story about a man, about to graduate from Texas A&M, whose family moved here to the United States when he was 5 from Guatemela.. and who was arrested by INS officials at school.  Here's Chet Edwards comments about it.

U.S. Congressman Chet Edwards, D-Waco, said last week that he learned about Sosa's situation in October through a letter from Texas A&M University Interim President Ed Davis. 

"[Sosa] is paying a price for the decisions made by his parents years ago," Edwards said. "It seems that when [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is enforcing the law, there should be a better way to do it than to walk on campus and put handcuffs on a student."

It was not an official university effort, A&M Vice Provost Luis Cifuentes pointed out, but many faculty members and administrators independently wrote letters to immigration officials and to Edwards on Sosa's behalf...

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials then granted Sosa a stay of deportation through December 2008 so he could finish his degree, he said.

"I'm glad that [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] showed some common-sense decency in allowing him to stay until graduation," Edwards said last week.

The congressman said he did not play a direct role in Sosa's release but said his office has ongoing discussions with Immigration and Customs Enforcement
