    A Hartford mother said she’s been granted a stay of deportation hours before she was set to be deported back to London.

    Wayzaro Walton and supporters gathered in Hartford Thursday night to celebrate the last-minute decision.

    Walton came to the U.S. when she was 4.

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement said she is a convicted felon with numerous additional misdemeanor convictions, including larcency.

    Walton attended the rally with her wife and 15-year-old daughter and said she needed the stay for her family.

    “Ten days before Christmas. I can be with my family for the holidays, so it feels good and I got a lot of support,” she said.

    Walton and her supporters said they’ll continue to fight for her to stay permanently in the U.S.
