WSJ: US temporarily suspends deporting widows
The Wall Street Journal reports that the US has ceased deporting widows or widowers whose citizen spouses died while they were waiting to get permanent resident status. It's a completely sensible policy that should have been done from the beginning. However, it's also a good sign. It only affects about 200 people, but it's a sign that the administration is serious about reforming immigration policies.
