Durham woman deported after public fight to stay in US
RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A young Durham woman was deported Friday morning following a long fight to stay in the U.S.
Wendy Noemi Miranda-Fernandez came into the country in 2008 at the age of 14 from El Salvador. Family and friends say she came out of fear for her life. They say she witnessed a murder committed by a gang in El Salvador before escaping the country.
ICE took her into custody in March.
Miranda was arrested when she went to a Charlotte ICE office for a check-in, her fiance, Robert Paulino said.
