Abba means ‘father’ in most Semitic languages. Abba has moved his family from Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, to America on tourist visas. From the minute the Hossain family arrives in America, they are under pressure of being discovered as illegal immigrants.

Scialabba v. Cuellar de Osorio (2014) challenged the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1998 and the Child Status Protection Act, which allowed the automatic conversion provision of visa petition dates in cases that qualified. Cuellar de Osorio, a United States permanent resident, had petitioned for her son to receive a visa as a permanent resident of the U.S. in 1998. The date in which a petition is filed, the date is known as the “priority date” which serves as a ‘ticket’ in our immigration visa process. However, the Cuellar de Osorio’s visa petition did not appear in front of the ‘visa line’ until 2005; at which point, Cuellar de Osorio’s son had already turned 21 making him ineligible for the visa which was categorically filed as a derivative
Only four weeks after meeting Jeremy I knew I couldn’t live without him. I packed a bag and moved across the country to Wenatchee, Washington. It was immediately clear to me that Jeremy was brought up with a set of family values that were uncommon to me.

Through research of this Amendment, one of the lessons of this history is that decisions that seem so simple and easy to make now, took long to make hundreds of years ago. This Amendment made and makes ancestors and future relatives down the line a citizen of the country they live in (U.S.A). In today's current events, people are torn about immigration, and illegal immigration, and whether those people should be citizens of the U.S.A or not. Another side to this conflict is whether America should deport them back to the country they originally came from. Just like how the decision of the 14th Amendment was an evolving conflict in the 1800’s, immigration is an evolving conflict today.

If the family passes the I-604 then they will enter another waiting process as the Department of Homeland Security Citizen and Immigration Services has to approve the adoption, the forms, and give the child a visa so they child can come to America with the adoptive parent. Today there is still hope to reopen the adoption in Nepal as the U.S. embassy in Kathmandu continues to meet with officials inside the government of Nepal and help fix the damage and all the false paper work of the children, and on February 25,2010 they issued the International Adoption Working Group as they hope to work swiftly and strengthen the adoption
