Our bilingual immigration attorney in Greensboro, Devon Senges, helped a local woman get an expedited immigration process for “urgent humanitarian reasons”. We usually see these expedited processes granted in cases such as a dying spouse with a week to live. Except, in this case, there was no dying spouse.
The woman was stuck in Mexico and separated from her husband and children. Devon Senges learned that the woman needing entry to our country was a beloved member of a large church in Pinehurst. The other members of the church were distraught to hear of the immigration roadblock faced by this family.
Our Greensboro immigration attorney thought of a plan and orchestrated it beautifully. She provided the pastor of the church with a letter, and specific instructions for the interested church members to sign and provide a copy of their photo ID. Hundreds joined the cause, and the letter/packet grew and grew. Then she sent the letter, with hundreds of signatures, to several representatives.
Thom Tillis’ office enthusiastically embraced Dummit Fradin’s worthy cause and is currently taking all steps to help expedite the process. Normally, these cases would take over a year absent an urgent humanitarian reason.
What Qualifies as Urgent Humanitarian Reasons?
According to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services website, to be considered an urgent humanitarian reason a family member outside the US must be particularly vulnerable because of age, disability, or living circumstances. The petitioner needs to provide substantive evidence demonstrating the particular vulnerability of the family member. Or, the petitioner needs to provide evidence the vulnerability can’t be addressed where the family member resides.
