"Rodrigo Cruz, a 16-year-old high school student preparing for deportation, walked into an immigration office in Charlotte on Tuesday with a $155 bus ticket to Mexico and walked out with permission to stay temporarily in the United States.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials granted Cruz deferred
action, ending a 10-month deportation proceeding just weeks before his
Oct. 21 deportation deadline, and allowing him to stay in the United
States at least until he is 18."
