Blanca Catt was born in Mexico and smuggled into the U.S. as a toddler. She was seized from abusive parents by the state of Oregon and placed into foster care with the Catts when she was 5 years old. The Catts adopted her three years later. Crucial paperwork has never been filed to make her a legal resident, which makes her face deportation.
It is believed that Blanca was granted a U Non-Immigrant Visa in late 2010. It is unclear whether she has been given permanent residence or citizenship yet, which could take 8 years or more after the U Visa
Status: Temporary U non-immigrant visa
Home state: Oregon
Country of origin: Mexico
