Andy and Letty, Stuck in Visa Limbo

"Andy continued to excel in his career and was promoted to sales manager.  After six years of employment with the company, his contract expired, leaving him vulnerable to deportation.  Thankfully, Andy had many job offers and companies willing to sponsor the renewal of his Visa.  Andy accepted a job with an insurance company in 2009, but had to wait to start working until his paperwork was processed and his Visa renewed.  3 years, 10 months, and 8 days later and he is still waiting. The wait for his renewed Visa became unbearable.  Having depleted their savings account, Andy was forced to go find any job that would help him support his family.  He found a job waiting tables at Los Cabos..." - Tim Dodd, April 2013.
