Hoping for reprieve: Md. immigrants await new policy

"Alfaro is among the first in the nation whose immigration case will be reviewed under a new Obama administration policy that directs federal prosecutors to focus attention on people who have committed crimes since arriving in the United States while freezing the cases of some who have not.  Baltimore is one of two cities where the policy is to be tested next month.  The elderly, children who have been in the country more than five years, and immigrants who have served in the military or have close relatives who have served are among those whose deportations could be put on hold." - Baltimore Sun, Nov. 18, 2011.
