Immigrant Widows Left In Limbo

"A foreigner who marries a U.S. citizen is entitled to become a U.S. resident.

But as correspondent Bob Simon reports, immigration wants to deport several hundred widows-and a few widowers-foreigners who had been married to American citizens when the Americans died. Immigration claims basically that a widow is not a wife, and that if the widow did not complete the process to become a U.S. resident while her husband was alive, she cannot remain in the country."

If that sounds a little strange, wait till you see the video below of what happened to Raquel Williams when she met up with immigration.
