    BALTIMORE (AP) — Alyse and Elmer Sanchez were thrilled when they survived their “green card” interview, a crucial step in obtaining lawful status in the United States. She texted her family from the immigration office as relief washed over her: The officer had agreed that their marriage is legitimate.

    Moments later, Elmer was in shackles, detained pending deportation to his native Honduras, leaving her alone with their two little boys.

    “We feel it was a trap, a trick, to get us there,” Alyse said.

    The Sanchezes have joined five other couples in a class action accusing federal agents of luring families to marriage interviews in Baltimore, only to detain the immigrant spouse for deportation.

    This really sucks! I have a coworkers who is going through the process of getting her green card to go to the US as she married an American. It has taken years to process the paperwork.
