Dr. Guan Lee, who has spent the past 18 years in the state, was scheduled to leave the United States on Monday and return to Malaysia, but she was granted a reprieve.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents had said they would enforce a Minnesota doctor's deportation order from September 2011, but Lee learned she was given a 30-day reprieve.
