Opa has applied for his extension, a regular task he must do to keep his status in the US legal. His hopes of transferring his status from temporary to permanent are fading, but at least the INS seems to have gotten on the same page. Opa should now be able to follow a routine of regularly submitting his application for an extension, and as long as he is enrolled in school, he should be OK. But of course nothing is permanent, so there is the slight held breath until he receives a response affirming his stay.
