STATELESS IMMIGRANT

SEATTLE - At a time when millions of immigrants want to stay in the United States, Yury Decyatnik just wants to leave, but can't. He has been under a final order of removal from the United States for over a decade. In that time, he's been constantly unemployed and lives out of his car. He's been arrested and wants the U.S. government to deport him. But the government is unable to remove Decyatnik because he doesn't have a country to take him. By Manuel Valdes. AP Photo.
