See MetroWeekly article: "Maryland Bi-National Same-Sex Couple Avoids Separation, for Today"
Attorney Lavi Soloway provides the following update about Edwin Echegoyen and Rodrigo Martinez. The Maryland couple, who married in D.C. on March 1, faced separation today, as Martinez was due to surrender in Baltimore for deportation to El Salvador.
Soloway relayed that "Rodrigo was released, details to follow" in an email sent to Metro Weekly at 2:30 p.m. today.
As Soloway wrote to Metro Weekly earlier today, "Rodrigo is in [immigration officials'] custody and will have to surrender his passport, but it looks like they may be releasing him today under an Order of Supervision, taking into account (1) Motion to Reopen Proceedings (2) Motion for Emergency Stay of Removal (3) Pending Petition for Alien Relative (marriage-based) filed by Edwin."
