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.
The news of the change came Monday afternoon when she reported to the ICE office, but agents have not confirmed why the change was made.
KSTP's Farrah Fazal spent the day Lee during what was supposed to be her last hours in Minnesota. Check out the journey below:
