Update: Ypsilanti girl left behind after mother, sister deported

Aug 26, 2016

The news came in today that Susana Bernabé-Ramirez and her 16-year-old daughter Sayra Hernandez have been deported. That leaves 11-year-old, American-born Isabella Hernandez here in the United States. This creates an even bigger challenge for the family, because Isabella has epilepsy and needs the medical care that she is receiving here in Michigan.

We spoke with Bernabé-Ramirez and Sayra in April as they awaited a stay of removal from the Board of Immigration Appeals.

Their attorney Brad Thompson joined us to talk about this development.

"Right now Isabella is living with her grandma, and we're working together as a community to make sure all her needs are met as fast as they can be met," Thompson told us.
