The Hussain Family

Audio slideshow produced/edited by Cory Bennett and Rebecca Ellis

Taimur Hussain has been employed as a chef and been a tax-paying resident since then, according to Naresh Gehi and Associates, the law firm representing Hussain. But Hussain was also one of the country’s 16.6 million undocumented residents, a civil offense under federal law. And when he and his wife had two children, Sebreena, 13, and Sanjana, 8, while living in the States, the Hussain family became a “mixed-status family,” where members of the same family have different immigration statuses. Born in the United States, Sebreena and Sanjana enjoyed American citizenship. Taimur, Sabina Mahmud and Reezwana remained undocumented.
