Henri's deportation has been halted (at least until December)

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

A few minutes ago, via their Facebook page, Henry Velandia and Josh Vandiver reported some good news, for the time being anyway:

Judge grants adjournment!! We have to come back in December! More soon!
AP has a report:
A Venezuelan salsa dancer who legally married an American man in a same-sex ceremony last year has had his deportation placed on hold.

The decision comes one day after U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder set aside a Board of Immigration Appeals ruling in a similar case.

Henry Velandia, who faces deportation to Venezuela, is petitioning to be allowed to remain in the U.S. as the spouse of U.S. citizen Josh Vandiver.

Judge Alberto Riefkohl granted an adjournment of the case Friday in a Newark immigration court.
