Deportation Hearing For High School Student

WARREN (WWJ) – A hearing Thursday could determine whether a Warren High School student will be able to stay in the U.S. after she graduates in June or be deported to her native Albania.

Ola Kaso is an honor student at Cousino High School and has plans to become a surgeon. Recently, she was accepted to the pre-medical program at the University of Michigan and was named to the Macomb area conference all-acedemic team. 

Now 18-years-old, Kaso is facing possible deportation after she graduates in June. She has lived in the U.S. since she was 4-years-old.

A relative said Kaso and her family were taken advantage of and lied to by a shady attorney upon their arrival in the U.S. nearly 15 years ago.

When Kaso’s family came to the U.S., they applied for political asylum but their request was denied. Due to an attorney’s mistake when filing paperwork, it recently came to light that the family had to be deported.

The family was told they would be allowed to stay in the country until Kaso graduates from high school, but after that they must leave.

Kaso’s brother-in-law Brad Wing, an Oakland County attorney, told the Macomb Daily a hearing is scheduled for Thursday to determine what will happen to Kaso after graduation. Will she be allowed to stay, or will she be deported?

    That is just wrong to deport this young lady. What will become of her in Albania? It is not like she snuck into the country she has been going to public schools for last 13 years.

    Exactly! It’s not as if she were just another Mexican alien that willingly snuck into our country illegally. Leave it liberal government extremists to ruin this aspiring young lady’s career – and life. The buffoons at the INS are still as ignorant as ever. The vast majority of them should be fired as well….before obama provides them with union bargaining rights as welll.

    Um…aside from the political slams…I think that because this lady is a GIVING CITIZEN she deserves to stay, if not more than those who simply waste government money (people on welfare). She would help the economy and actually contribute to society. These are the kind of people we want; why would we deport them?
