This mother of 2 and her husband of 20 plus years sold their home in Sweden, moved to the US. They purchased a new home, renovated it and started a new life. They were married in the US over 20 years ago and had 1 son born in the US. They moved to Sweden to her homeland to start a life and later had another child born in Sweden. Her mother died of cancer in the spring of 2011. Her father died a horrific death in Paris in 2012 by a transport. They decided to sell their home in Sweden and move back to the US to be closer to her husbands family. Her husband maintains dual citizenship as does their oldest son. Her youngest son is in school and they made the proper applications and received his citizenship. The mother received a temporary visa of which was to renew it and unfortunately for her she neglected this. She returned to Sweden a month ago to seek medical attention for something I leave that to her to discuss. When flying home through Germany when she was going through customs she was refused entry due to the expired visa and told she could not return for 3 years. They said she can be a financial burden on the health system is a part of the reason but she has never sought medical treatment there and returned to her home country for medical treatment. She is in Germany staying with a cousin with an uncertain future and no way to see her children for 3 years. While the mistake of not renewing the visa is entirely her fault, to keep a mother from her 10 year old son is cruelty. There must be a group or organization who helps people like this. Keeping a mother from her child at that age is going to permanently scar him. Please help us find a way to help her.
