Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri is hopeful something can be done to help Lauren Gray of Trenton regarding the soon-to-be 21-year old's residency status. Lauren, her mother Ali Gray, and a friend of Lauren's, Shelby Muff of Trenton, met with Senator McCaskill on Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Gray family is seeking the ability for Lauren Gray to legally remain in the U.S. when she turns 21 next Wednesday, August 8th.

Lauren is also seeking to have the opportunity to find employment. Under current immigration law, Lauren, upon turning 21, no longer would qualify to legally reside in the United States as a dependent to her parents, Ali and Ian Gray, who have Investor Visa's.

Senator McCaskill talks about the meeting with the Gray's, and Shelby Muff, and what steps are specifically being taken to help the Gray family:
