Nation IN BRIEF : NEBRASKA : Deported Teen-Ager Rejoins His Family

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A Mexican teen-ager removed from school and deported was reunited with his family in Omaha, Neb., after the Justice Department ruled he and two other young Mexicans may stay in the United States while they seek to gain legal residency with their parents. Ambrosio Lopez, 17, was pulled out of high school last month by Immigration and Naturalization Service agents. Gov. Ben Nelson and other Nebraska officials had worked for their return, protesting the way the youths were arrested and shipped to Mexico without money or a change of clothes. Officials said the three had won humanitarian parole, which allows them to remain in the United States while their parents work to obtain legal residency for them.
