The Israeli widow of a New York City rabbi killed in the Mumbai terrorist attacks of 2008 can remain in the United States permanently.
Michael Wildes told the New York Post that his client, Frumet Teitelbaum, was granted legal residency last week.
Teitelbaum was stopped at John F. Kennedy International Airport in March after arriving from Israel, where she lived. She had come to visit her eight American-born children, who were staying with her late husband's family in Brooklyn. She was stopped for overusing her visitor's visa.
Wildes says Teitelbaum obtained a green card under a post 9/11 law that allows families of terror victims the right to permanent residency.
Rabbi Leibish Teitelbaum died after gunmen struck the Chabad-Lubavitch movement's center in Mumbai during a three-day rampage.
