Yahoo! National News - Mon, 02/02/2015 - 03:24

Maximiano Vazquez-Guevara, left, his wife Ashley Bowen, and their 6-year-old daughter, Nevaeh Vazquez, pose for a photo in their home Saturday, Jan. 31, 2015, in the northeast Denver suburb of Commerce City, Colo. The presidential executive order that fast-tracked immigration hearings for last summer's flood of Central American migrants may have had unintended consequences in canceling hearings for non-detained immigrants with longstanding cases such as Vazquez-Guevara. Vazquez-Guevarra, 34, recently won his appeal to become a legal permanent resident. But his case still needs to go in front of an immigration judge one last time, and it has been pulled from the docket. Thousands of immigrants seeking legalization through the U.S. court system have had their hearings canceled and are being told by the government that it may be 2019 or later before their futures are resolved.
