  • A Residency Dream, Now a Nightmare

    From the NY Times:

    In 2004, Heathcliffe Bradley was planning to return to his native New Zealand after eight years in the United States when he met Cheryl Losee, a New Jersey native, and his plans flew out the window. He stayed, they married, and then he turned his attention to a lingering problem: Mr. Bradley was an illegal immigrant.

    But what seemed to them a straightforward process to make Mr. Bradley a legal resident soon turned into a bureaucratic and legal nightmare. Last month Mr. Bradley, a construction worker who says he has no criminal record in either the United States or New Zealand, was hauled from his home in handcuffs and put in an immigration detention center in Elizabeth, N.J., and told he was going to be deported.

    Moral of the tale? Never reschedule interviews, definitely not twice without a REALLY good reason.

      Typical Kiwi 'she'll be right' attitude, except for the fact it came back to bite him in the arse.

      One shouldn't procrastinate when it comes to something as important as this.
