A mother and daughter facing deportation to Bangladesh were granted a last-minute reprieve earlier today, allowing the pair to remain in the country for at least one more day.

Nadia Habib, a 19-year-old Woodside resident and Stony Brook University student, was to be deported at 11:30 a.m. this morning with her mother, Nazmin, tearing her away from her father, who holds a green card, and three siblings, all born in the U.S.

According to published reports, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has temporarily prevented the deportation after meeting with the family for over an hour today, while hundreds rallied outside in support. ICE is currently considering the case, and the pair cannot leave the state until a decision is made.

Habib, who is majoring in Psychology and minoring in Biology and Art, arrived in America with her mother when she was just one-year-old, making New York the only home she has ever known.
