Woman in Limbo After Tragedy

El Nuevo Herald, Posted: Sep 28, 2008


MIAMI, FL -- Jissela Cabello's future is uncertain after her husband killed their four-year-old daughter, before killing himself. Cabello is in danger of being deported, according to her lawyer. Originally from Paraguay, Cabello has lived in the U.S. for seven years but her petition for citizenship was put in by her husband and with his death is now lost. Cabellos only option now is applying for a U visa, which gives a permanent residence permit to domestic violence victims. However, according to her lawyer, this application requires the signature of the authority that investigated her husband and daughter's deaths. "We don't know if we will get that signature," said Cabello 's lawyer, Jorge Rivera. "Sometimes you can't find the exact person who worked on the case, they don't have time or they don't want to sign an undocumented immigrant's petition."
