Her “final” chance to persuade immigration officials that she should not be deported, largely because medical treatment she needs is not available in her homeland of Honduras.

But “final” became “temporary” last week, when Gómez’s application for a humanitarian visa was granted by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service.
