Marine's immigrant father faces deportation

Marine's immigrant father faces deportation

As a Marine's father awaits deportation to Guatemala for being an illegal immigrant, U.S. immigration officials are giving him a chance to prove he should be granted permanent residency in the United States.
Ron Russell, a lawyer for illegal immigrant Juan Andres, tells The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Kentucky, his client faced a Thursday deadline to file evidence with immigration officials.
Russell says the evidence will include letters from the man's five children, all of whom are U.S. citizens. One of them is Lance Cpl. Aspar Andres, who is scheduled to leave Sunday for his Marine camp, where he will await deployment to Afghanistan.
The 41-year-old Juan Andres is from Guatemala. He came to the United States illegally as a teenager.
