Man given six-month stay after asylum appeal denied
SAN MATEO, Calif. (KGO) -- A San Mateo man facing deportation next week back to Guatemala will be allowed to stay in the U.S. a bit longer, after immigration officials granted Edgar Roblero a six-month stay.
It took 20 years for Roblero's asylum request to be processed, and then denied. His two daughters were born in the U.S., but are afraid to go to Guatemala. Their mother died there last year of a heart attack while being held up at gun point.
Roblero's fate will be decided by an immigration appeals board in Washington D.C.
