War widow won't be deported, gets permanent residency

Dahianna Heard was given permanent residency. Now she can raise her son Bryan Harley in the country Jeffrey Heard gave his life for. Here's the press release.

If Mrs. Heard won her fight, the legal battle against The Widow Penalty continues. These women and men, who were trying to legally immigrate to this country before their spouses died, shouldn't be penalized for no other reason than an act of God.

I was stunned this week that my wife had her I-751 receipt in hand from the USCIS after applying late January '08. They actually were timely, at least on receipting.

I hope it doesn't take another year to go through the obvious evidence of our legit marriage. The mail order bride business causes the rest of us to put up with more than we should have to.
