Gainesville immigration attorney speaks on possible problems for crash victim

By

Lidiane Carmo, 15, from Marietta, Georgia remains in Shands Hospital because of the serious injuries she sustained in the I-75 accidents this past weekend. Her entire family died in the crash including her mother, father, sister and uncle. The family members moved to the U.S. from Brazil and are undocumented. Some reports have said the teen could be deported back to Brazil after her recovery, but the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency said today she will not face deportation. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Caitlin Lawrence spoke with Gainesville Immigration Attorney Evan George about this unique case.
