    Default Immigration and Natural Disasters

    My step children 11, 14, & 16 all live in Brazil along with my Mother in Law. The Kids all have US Visa's although they have never been here.
    My wife and I started the Immigration Process for the kids roughly 45-60 days ago.

    Last week terrible weather hit their city and it is now under 10 ft of water. Literally flooding everywhere no power, many dead. Water is up to the 2nd story of buildings and flowing through the city like a river. More rain and tornados expected tonight. Possible Mudslides.

    What can I do? Can I fly to Brazil pick them up and bring them here on their B2 Tourist Visa or a Family Disaster Visa and finish the Immigration process here? My wife and I are kinda freaking out..

    Thank you for all advice

    I would strongly recommend that you consult with an immigration attorney in the morning to see if there is anything that would be messed up by bringing them to the states now. I understand your concerns for their safety, and I would have the same concerns. However, at the same time you don't want to destroy their chance of immigrating either.

    Brazil is an incredibly large country. I'm sure that there are safe places in Brazil where your family can stay and not jeopardize their immigration status.

    60% of it is rainforest. However, there probably are still a lot of safe places in the other 40%. However, I have been doing some googling and the OP is not exaggerating about how bad the flooding is. It is pretty darned awful.

    Like I said previously, you need a consult with an immigration attorney first thing in the morning.

    You need a lawyer. First, you've omitted details that are important here. Second, Brazil's and the US's immigration agencies are having a pissing match with each other right now, so that country is particularly problematic.
