(Hartford, CT) – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) issued the following statement regarding news that Nury Chavarria has received an emergency stay of deportation and will be allowed to return home to Norwalk.
“Justice and reason have prevailed and Nury will be allowed to temporarily return to her home in Norwalk as we continue to fight for long-term relief. The facts in this case are clear and compelling, and I am hopeful that once granted her day in court Nury will be awarded the legal status she deserves. I remain in close contact with Nury, her legal team and advocates to provide all support possible to resolve this humanitarian nightmare. Nury’s plight is the direct result of an immigration system that has lost all sense of humanity—a betrayal of fundamental American values. As we fight for Nury and her family, I remain committed to comprehensive immigration reform to bring lasting justice to this badly broken system,” Blumenthal said.
