Albanian mom with 3 American children to be deported today

In my experience, I’ve never seen it. … I’ve never seen them deport a female who has children,” said New York immigration attorney Andrew Johnson, who is in a race against time to save his client from deportation. “No one can believe that this is actually occurring.”

The woman’s husband is especially baffled.

“We’re hoping for a miracle,” Pjetero (Pete) Gojcevic, told the Free Press on Monday night.

The U.S. Immigrations Customs and Enforcement said it would comment on the case today.

According to court documents and interviews with Precetaj’s husband and attorney, this is her story:

Precetaj, who was born in Albania in 1972, fled to the U.S. in 2000 to escape an abusive fiancé and a criminal atmosphere, testifying that she was unable to go outside for fear of being kidnapped and sold into prostitution. She entered the U.S. illegally via Canada at the Port Huron border with friends. Upon arrival, she turned herself into authorities and sought asylum.
