Kat Stacks really doesn’t want to be deported back to her native Venezuela.
Hip-hop’s infamous celebrity jump-off is facing deportation and wants the Obama administration to help her out. Kat Stacks, born Andrea Herrera, has been at a Louisiana immigration detention facility since November of last year on grounds that she is in the country illegally.
Now, the former WorldStarHipHop staple and her mother, Johnyelsi Cardenas, have requested that the Obama administration delay her deportation for another two years. “All that she went through on the street, she created that person, Kat, to survive,” said Cardenas.
Unfortunately, Immigration Judge Jerry Beatmann isn’t so sympathetic. Having already rejected her adjustment request, which is being appealed by her attorney, Beatmann stated that Stacks’ “conduct was in no way indicative of someone who wants to help others, make positive changes, or be a role model.”
One light at the end of the tunnel in Stacks’ battle is the case of Daniela Pelaez, a high school valedictorian in Miami who was allowed to stay in the U.S. thanks to a presidential executive order.
