Surviving Spouses Against Deportation

Dan Kowalski tipped me off to an interesting immigration-related website.  Surviving Spouses Against Deportation (click here for the website) is a non-profit organization formed to end the "widow penalty" in United States immigration law. A little known trap for the unwary, the widow penalty affects surviving spouses of United States citizens whose applications for lawful permanent resident status remain pending when the citizen spouse passes away.

Check out the flip side. These wives want their husbands deported from the U.S. after being abandoned.
