Colindres, a native of Guatemala, entered the U.S. through Texas on a provisional waiver 13 years ago. He has an American wife of seven years and two young children.

Last August, Colindres requested to stay in the U.S. with his family while his legal fight continued. That request was approved, temporarily keeping him from being deported back to Guatemala.Related Content: Lawmakers to meet with New Fairfield father facing deportation
