Villagers fight to save local hero teacher from being deported.
An attempt to send a respected headteacher back to the US has raised hackles in Scotland.
A PRIMARY school head teacher who has lived in Scotland for nine years has been told to leave the country - even though his Scots wife has cancer.
David MacIsaac, 58, has been ordered to return to his native country, the US, after his application for permanent residency was turned down by the Home Office.
David, whose wife Susan has been diagnosed with breast cancer, is appealing against the ruling and is being backed by his local MP.
He said: “My whole life is here and I want to stay. My wife is ill and we can’t believe this is happening.
“I have no property in America and no job to go back to. I’ve been here for years and this is where my life is.
