    BACKGROUND: A female Chinese senior citizen flew to the U.S. and petitioned for political asylum alleging religious persecution which included threats, beatings, and incarceration for her adherence to a government disapproved Christian church. While in the forced labor camp she underwent additional severe psychological and physical abuse. But, her two sisters who are long time U.S. citizens were shocked to learn that she was denied asylum and ordered deported. For unknown reasons, the judge then stayed the execution of that deportation order.
    This Chinese citizen subsequently has lived in the U.S. at the indulgence the Government for the past 8 years without a visa or green card and was told that if she crosses our boarder she will not be able to reenter.
    More than a year ago she met and fell in love with another senior citizen - an American. After a one year engagement, they were married in the Catholic Church at a parish that provides services in both English and Mandarin.
    QUESTION: What can now be done to regularize her residence status and permanently void the deportation order? This elderly couple, most importantly, wish to live out their remaining years without the fear of being permanently separated by deportation. Secondarily, they would like the freedom to some day go on a religious pilgrimage outside of the country if the opportunity should present itself to go to Rome or the Holy Land. They also would like to have the simple freedom of crossing back and forth into Canada or the Bahamas while on holiday like other people.

    Advise the alien to seek the counsel of an immigration attorney.
    This is too far above our pay grade.
    These days, immigration authorities seem willing to allow anyone to do anything.
