Families of Undocumented 9-11 Victims Win Reprieve

El Diario/La Prensa, Posted: Sep 11, 2008

NEW YORK -- After seven long years of silence for fear of being deported, the families of undocumented victims of the September 11, 2001 tragedy will finally give their testimony, after receiving temporary legal permits to stay in the United States. Fifteen families, including spouses and children, were granted the permits, reports El Diario/La Prensa. El Diario/La Prensa tried to speak directly with these people, but Debra Brown Steinberg, an attorney representing the families, wants to protect the identity of her clients until the legal proceedings are completed. The majority of the families are Latino immigrants, according to the attorney. Many of the family members were employees of the Windows on the World restaurant, which was located on the 106th and 107th floors of the the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
