’90 Day Fiance’: Larissa Has Immigration Checking Up on Her – Can She Stay in US?

90 Day Fiance star Larissa Dos Santos Lima has recently been in the news because she was detained by ICE. After her released, she began discussing the possibility of being deported from the U.S.A. Despite being let go from the TLC network, Larissa looks to be happily thriving with her new career.

90 Day Fiance: The New Life of Larissa Lima

After being introduced in season 6 of 90 Day Fiance, Larissa Lima and her now ex-husband Colt Johnson quickly rose to fame. With all of the drama surrounding their relationship, Colt and his ex-wife were constantly fighting.

Colt called 9-1-1 on Larissa after some of their fights continued to heat up. Following the third arrest, Larissa and Colt decided to end their 90 Day Fiance marriage. During the divorce, she also was in court, fighting legal charges from her arrests.

The remarks that Colt Johnson’s mother, Debbie Johnson, made about Larissa made the drawn-out divorce even tenser. Even after their divorce, she continues to film with 90 Day Fiance. She’s now filming episodes with her new man, Eric Nichols. Recently, TLC fired Larissa Lima because of her new job involving revealing photos.

The Immigration Status of Colt’s Ex-Wife

Larissa said recently that she had an “ICE check-in”. Even though this 90 Day Fiance ex-wife said that the ordeal is terrifying, she also said that everything went well. She is reportedly still in the “removal proceedings” stage, which means that the USA may deport her back to Brazil.

The only thing way to change the possibility of deportation is if something changes with her status. While waiting for court hearings for the proceeding, Larissa Lima has a work permit. This means that she can work legally in the U.S. until she has her hearings. Those hearings are with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). For now, the 90 Day Fiance ex could avoid being sent out of the US if she married a citizen.

Once TLC officially dismissed Larissa Lima, she quickly began finding other ways to work. She’s currently starring in the Jack Alexander: Magician Exposed magic show. The side of her that’s shown in this event is very different than what viewers have seen watching 90 Day Fiance. She doesn’t seem to be having any problems finding work, despite the cut ties with the show.

90 Day Fiance: Eric’s Girlfriend Larissa Accused of Publicity Stunt

When Eric Nichols moved with Larissa to Colorado, they said ICE detained her briefly before they left the state of Nevada. Back then, many fans accused her of faking the incident. They speculated that she was doing this to get more attention in the media. However, official documents confirmed she was, indeed, detained for a few hours by ICE.

Even after a quick break up for this 90 Day Fiance couple, Eric reportedly paid for several plastic surgeries that Larissa received. She got chest implants, a nose job, and other enhancements. However, Larissa said recently that she paid for the surgeries herself and the “loan” from Eric was just a TLC storyline.

Eric and his girlfriend moved to Colorado Springs and sources say they’re living with his mother. Since they moved together, perhaps Eric plans to marry Larissa. If so, that’s Larissa Lima’s best chance to avoid more issues with ICE. Even though the recent check-in went well, she’s at risk of being sent out of the US.
