Lawyer: Man may enter US from Mexico to bury son

Lawyer: Father granted humanitarian parole to enter US from Mexico to bury son killed in fire By The Associated Press

ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) ' An immigration lawyer says a Mexican man will be allowed to enter the United States to bury his 10-year-old son, a U.S. citizen who died in a house fire in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Fidelmar "Fidel" Merlos-Lopez initially was barred entry into the country. But his Philadelphia-based lawyer, Elizabeth Surin, says her client was issued a humanitarian parole to attend the funeral.

She said early Sunday that Lopez was on a plane bound for Pennsylvania.



Lopez's son, Damien Lopez, died Tuesday in a Shenandoah row house fire along with his cousin, aunt and 7-month-old half-brother. The funeral is set for Monday.

Lopez was an illegal immigrant who left the U.S. voluntarily in 2008. He's in the process of getting his green card so he can rejoin his wife in Shenandoah.
