Question by My Ancestors Discovered America: Man fights for country in Iraq what thanks he gets deport his wife immigration say?
WASHINGTON – Spc. Moonsammy Narinesammy isn’t worried about dying in Iraq.

He’s worried about spending the rest of his life in Guyana.

Narinesammy, 31, who has months left on his deployment, spends all of his free time between missions trying to solve his wife’s citizenship problems. Immigration and Naturalization Services officials are finalizing deportation paperwork for Ratashwarie, while she waits nervously in New York.

“I don’t know if somebody is going to knock on the door one day and haul me away while my daughter is out at school,” she said.

She faces a possible lifetime banishment from the United States for entering the country on a forged passport in 2000. Moonsammy said the only relatives she has in Guyana live in poor, dangerous slums, in an area where neither wants to raise their two young daughters.

“All I want to do is come back home to my family, but I don’t know what’s going to happen,” said Moonsammy, himself a naturalized U.S. citizen. “I have a wonderful family, but it’s getting ripped apart.”

Immigration experts say it’s not an unusual story.

“I probably get one of these calls a week,” said Lt. Col. Margaret Stock, an Army reservist who works with the American Immigration Lawyers Association. “It’s a military readiness problem. The spouses are over there, stressing out about what’s happening back home. They can’t focus because they’re worried about where their wives will end up.”

They almost had me with their sad little story until the third paragraph from the end. “….for entering the country on a forged passport in 2000.”

Tough. Should have done it legally. Now, go home.
