YubaNet: Fusshoeller deportation order canceled

According to an editorial authored by YubaNet founder and editor Pascale Fusshoeller, a deportation order seeking her removal has been canceled.

Fusshoeller, native of Luxembourg, was nearly deported after the arrest when it was discovered she had been living in the United States without an appropriate visa for nearly 15 years. YubaNet publisher, and Fusshoeller’s partner, Susan Levitz, said she married Fusshoeller in July, and the couple was in the process of getting immigration papers in order when the arrest occurred.

“Well, it’s official. We have confirmation - ICE’s order of removal against me has been canceled,” Fusshoeller wrote.

“ICE exercised prosecutorial discretion and no enforcement action will be taken,” she continued. “In plain English, they chose to see me as a human being, not just a number. This means we can complete the application for a green card for me.

“I find it difficult to adequately express the relief, joy and thankfulness we are feeling right now.
