Have you made your call to Senator Hagan today? Nayely and Blanca’s mom is set to be deported in just 8 DAYS! Senator Hagan is her only hope. 

Senator Kay Hagan

Washington DC: 202-224-6342
Greensboro: 336-333-5311

Sample Script: “Hi, I’m calling to ask that Senator Hagan support Maria Juana Perez Santiago (A# 200-576-618) and stop her deportation set for December 27, 2012. Maria Juana is the sole bread winner for her family that includes three US Citizen children. In 2010, Senator Hagan killed the DREAM Act because she wanted Comprehensive Immigration Reform. We are holding the Senator accountable to that. The Senator has a responsibility to keep this family together. Maria Juana is a low-priority case and her deportation should be stopped immediately.”

When you make a call expect to hear that the Senator can’t do anything. But she can. She has the power to do the following:

1. Issue a signed letter in support of Maria Juana Perez. The letter should specifically ask that Maria’s deportation be stopped and her request for discretion. The senator must take a position on Maria’s case.

2. Call John Morton, the director of ICE, directly and ask that he use his discretion. Senators in many previous cases have made this call.

3. Issue a private bill. Any senator can sponsor a private bill and as soon as one is issued it will put a hold on any deportation for the remainder of the congressional session.

 

Let us know what they tell you. And thank you for your support!

It’s been 155 hours since Uriel decided to stop eating as he sits in Wake County jail with an ICE detainer. The national immigration office has stated it will not drop the hold on Uriel. But, Uriel is not alone. His friends are joining him and have decided to give up food until Uriel is out of the claws of the immigration enforcement machine. Last Wednesday, in an act of courage to come out of the shadows, Uriel and the rest of the #Raleigh3 stood up against anti-immigrant legislators spewing language of hate and discussing what anti-immigrant bill to pass next. As undocumented youth, one would assume we’d be terrified and staying in the shadows, without a single spark of hope. But you see, this is not the case. Following Wednesday’s act of courage inside the NC legislature by our brave #Raleigh3, undocumented youth have decided to come out about their status. Realizing that remaining in the shadows is no longer acceptable as our undocumented community continues to be criminalized and marginalized, undocumented youth are redefining our value as human beings and it will no longer be determined by a social security number. Uriel, who still remains detained at Wake County jail, is proof of this. He isn’t sitting back and mourning his detention. He is remaining strong and has given up food inside the jail to send out a message that, although detained, he will continue to take a stand. Outside or inside detention, we will organize and we will fight back.

Cristina Alberto, Uriel’s sister

Uriel’s older sister, Cristina, has also refused to eat until she sees her brother released: ”My brother helped me go to school, without him I wouldn’t have been able to make the decision to go to college.”

El Cambio member Eric Martinez has also refused to eat until Uriel is released.

Continue calling Washington DC ICE at (202) 732-3000 on behalf of Uriel. When you call, say this:

“Hi, I was calling to ask that ICE drop the hold on Uriel Alberto (A#089-828-718). According to president Obama, he should not be facing deportation because he is Dream Act eligible. He is the father of a US citizen child and sole caretaker of his sisters. He stood up for his community and should be back home with his family. Please drop the ICE hold immediately. Thank you.”

If you haven’t yet, SIGN the online petition and ask your friends to sign it as well.

Thank you for your support!

ICE: Stop Victor’s Deportation NOW!

On Tuesday, December 27, Victor de la Cruz was pulled over on his way back home from work. Racial profiling? You bet. Victor was not even given a traffic ticket, instead the Wake County police officer took it upon himself to arrest him simply based on a previous record of a traffic ticket.

Victor was 11 years old when he came to the United States. He aspires to own a landscaping business. He is a son, father to three, and eligible for the Dream Act. UPDATE: Victor has been transferred to North Georgia Detention Center. He faces imminent deportation and we need your help to stop it!
