Emilyn Nanez suffered a stroke back in June and has been on disability. Her visa expires in July and its unknown whether her employer Gonzales Healthcare System, will extend that visa since she can’t work.

Her husband Jojo Nanez is a professor in the Philippines, but is considered a dependent and is restricted from working.

They have two young daughters, one and four-years old, who were both born in the United States.
