Thanks to a large social media push, an illegal immigrant from Bangladesh has been granted an immigration waiver from federal authorities.
Riaz Talukder, age 50, has been granted a temporary waiver after a coordinated social media campaign spread about his “plight.” Talukder, who has been living in the US since he was a minor – afoul of the law – is pleading to stay in the country now that it was discovered that his wife has thyroid cancer.
He’ll now be able to stay in the U.S. for another six months before having to run inwith the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) again, according to a press release about the matter. This will give the family a little more time to file court motions to overturn or further delay their deportation order.
