Judge rejects stay of deportation

April 19, 1994

A federal administrative judge in Baltimore has denied a request to reopen the deportation case of native of Yugoslavian who was living in Glen Burnie.

Judge William Greene Jr. decided last week not to stay the deportation of Steva Jaksic, 41, who is married to an American woman, Theresa Jaksic.

The couple's attorney, Mark Maier of Wheaton, said he would ask the judge to reconsider the ruling.

The couple married in 1992, but did not file the requisite Immigration and Naturalization Service forms until after Mr. Jaksic, a car salesman, was arrested in March.

Mr. Jaksic was born near Belgrade but is not an ethnic Serb. His family moved to West Germany when he was a youth. His tourist visa expired eight years ago.

Theresa Jaksic said members of the Maryland congressional delegation are looking into the situation.
