Thompson’s wife to surrender.


The wife of state Senator Curt Thompson plans to surrender to immigration officials Tuesday morning, according to her attorney. She is under a deportation order.

Atlanta attorney Charles Kuck said Sascha Herrera has decided that “the best option for her to pursue is to turn herself in and let the system work for her.”

He said Herrera, of Colombia, could be arrested, but he hoped officials would chose, instead, to let her remain free and check in weekly.
