According to an article in the telegraph.co.uk a British mother widowed by the World Trade Center terrorism is being threatened with deportation from America as an illegal alien. Just days after her husband's death she was sent an official notice warning her that her right to live in America was to be withdrawn. Before receiving the letter, the widow had called the INS to check on her status, only to be told: "You have none . . . regardless of the circumstances, you are an illegal alien." There is talk of a private bill or enlisting the aid of President Bush and Prime Minister Blair to help the woman. INS Commissioner Ziglar made a personal visit to New York to meet with community leaders to try to enlist their help in convincing people that the INS will not use information about missing loved ones. It is unfortunate that the agency he heads undermines his credibility.
