Raymore Family Hopes the Courts Stay Deportation

Raymore, MO – President Bush said in Omaha on Wednesday that he believes there's an emerging consensus on immigration reform. He called for a civil tone as the House and Senate try to reconcile two very different reform bills. Many observers say the sharp divide in Congress over immigration represents a divided public opinion.

But a deportation case in Kansas City has inspired unusual sympathy from both sides of the immigration debate. Raymore resident Myrna Dick flies to San Diego this morning (Friday, June 9) with her family. Saturday at midnight, she'll present herself at the Mexican border, unless she receives a last minute stay from the Supreme Court. KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross was at a small rally on Wednesday where Dick said good-bye to family and friends.
