New Fairfield woman meets with Congresswoman over deportation of her husband
A New Fairfield woman whose husband was deported in January met with Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty this week. In a Facebook post, it was noted that Samantha Colindres relayed information about the struggles she and her two children have been facing without Joel and his primary income. The family is looking to sell their home and relocate. Despite having an approved I-130 and Visa sponsorship through a valid marriage to his American-born wife, no criminal history and proof of payment of taxes Joel was deported to his native Guatemala earlier this year.
