Laura Danielson Commented on Togo Family Reunited with Son After Six Years

The Minneapolis Star Tribune covered the reunion of a family that had to make the decision to leave their 3-year-old son, Ramzi, in Togo to come to the US six years ago. After an error with his visa lottery application, the family couldn't admit to having another son in Togo when applying for their own visas. This was considered a fraudulent act and prevented them from applying for Ramzi's reunion. The truth was finally revealed when his father applied for citizenship risking the possibility of deportation. Laura Danielson stated, "There really has to be some kind of intent to defraud when there's fraud, and in this case, I think the immigration service felt he's paid enough." Ramzi arrived in Minneapolis/St. Paul on Saturday, January 7, 2012.
