Kuchibhotla murder: Widow faced deportation from U.S. after losing resident status

Hindustan Times - Kansas congressman Kevin Yoder, with the help of others, stepped in help Sunayana Dumala get a one-year visa so that she would not be deported from the U.S. after losing her resident status.

She is the widow of slain UTEP student Srinivas Kuchibhotla who was killed in February in Kansas in a suspected hate crime. 

After attending her husband's funeral in India, Dumala feared she would not be allowed back into the U.S. But Yoder said he felt "apoplectic" when he heard about Dumala's situation and felt compelled to act.
