ATENCION ILEGALES: No Contraten Servicio de Cable con Time Warner - Los Van a Deportar!

timewarnerdeports

Tell ICE that Lorena is a low-priority case that should be closed immediately because all she wanted was cable service!

 

Single mother Lorena Yanez-Mata (A# 205-214-279) could be separated from her 7 year old US citizen daughter tomorrow when she goes before an immigration judge in Charlotte. Yesterday, Time Warner Cable announced the company “has no interest in charges being brought against Ms. Yanez-Mata”. TWC remains responsible, however, for the deportation proceedings of Ms. Yanez-Mata. Lorena told Time Warner staff when signing up for cable over the phone that she did not have a legitimate Social Security number but the representative told her to use the false one she uses for work purposes and to come into the store to finalize the application. Sounds like a set up to us.

Time Warner Cable issued a statement saying it does not routinely turn over customer’s information to law enforcement. So, why is Lorena in deportation proceedings again?

Email Time Warner Cable at jack.stanley@twcable.com and susan.leepson@twcable.com and urge them to do the following:

- TWC should tell ICE to immediately close Lorena’s case because she should not be in deportation proceedings in the first place. TWC should release a statement of support for Lorena before her upcoming immigration court date on December 13th (TOMORROW at 8:30 am @ Immigration Court: 5701 Executive Center Drive, Suite 400. Charlotte, North Carolina 28212)

- TWC should also tell Senator Kay Hagan to intervene in the case of Lorena. Senator Hagan has the power to write a letter of support for Lorena addressed to ICE telling them to exercise favorable prosecutorial discretion.

Don’t forget to SIGN and SHARE the petition too!

Thanks for your support!

MIGUEL

Miguel Tzitzios was being held at North Georgia Detention Center despite being a low priority case. So much for Obama keeping his promises. But with your help we were able to do it. Miguel was released from North Georgia TODAY, after almost 2 months in detention! Thank you to everyone who signed the petition, made the calls, and supported him in every way possible. This proves the power we have as a community! We will keep you updated on his case. Thanks again for taking action! 

His daughter Cristina Tzitzios sends this note:

Primero le quiero dar Gracias a Dios porque sin el nada de esto estaria pasando. Pero tambien le quiero dar gracias a todos los que nos apoyaron en esta dura jornada! Sin sus llamadas, sus firmas, y el apoyo esto no hubiera sucedido. Gracias NC DREAM TEAM, you guys are amazing and do great things for families like mine!! Porfin termino esta pesadilla y mi papi estara con nosotros esta noche! La fe es lo ultimo que se pierde! I love y’all!.”

Miguel was released from North Georgia Detention Center, the same state where several other families are being held.  Take Marisela’s case for example, ICE showed up at Marisela’s home in October asking for her cousin. She was taken into custody after providing her consular ID card and is now being held at Irwin Detention Center in Georgia. Marisela is a DREAMer and sole provider for her US citizen daughter.  President Obama has said he is not deporting DREAMers. So why is Marisela still detained?

So make sure to SIGN and SHARE the petition to release Marisela! Make sure to call ICE to tell them to release her immediately. Let’s bring Marisela home for Christmas!

David Salazar (A# 205-214-528) has been in isolation at York County Detention Center for 20 days now.

Reason: His initial tuberculosis test showed postive. However, York County Detention Center has denied him a chest X-Ray which would give a true diagnosis. Furthermore, David is not receiving any kind of treatment or medication. He is wearing no face mask either. Why is David still in isolation after more than 2 weeks?

Take Action!

Call ICE - York County Detention Center (803) 628-2924 and DC - John Morton (202) 732-3000

Sample Script: “Hi, I’m calling to ask ICE to move David Salazar (A# 205-214-528) out of isolation at York Detention Center. He has been arbitrarily held isolated from the general population for more than 2 weeks based on his initial TB test that showed positive. David should undergo further medical exams to confirm he is TB positive and should receive the medical treatment he needs.”

Additional Talking Point 

“If David is indeed TB positive, he needs treatment not detention. He is a low-priority case. Release him now.”

After you call, share this post with 5 friends!
