When I was a little girl and before we migrated here to the United States, my familia was always very close. Growing up, I was fortunate to have a mother and a father who showered me with unconditional love and care. One of my fondest memories is when I was 5 years old and Daddy and I would sit and watch Lucha Libre on Sunday mornings. He would shout along with the comentaristas “los rudos, los rudos, los rudos!” He was a fan of the legendary Santo and Blue Demon. Times were good back then. Daddy had a good job and my mother didn’t have to work. Little did I know that 20 years later, I would become a luchadora too.. a luchadora for human rights. 

As an undocumented immigrant who is no longer living in the shadows, in fear and ashamed, I am no longer a victim. I have chosen to come out publicly to declare what this government says is my “illegal” status in this country. But three years in this struggle has not come without a price. It has emotional and physical implications of its own. So I gather faith and strength in the stories of resistencia de mis antepasados, mis raices, mi sobrina Camila de 4 meses, y la rabia que siento por las injusticias diarias que vive mi comunidad. For this, I am Undocumented, Unafraid, and a Luchadora! 

And, see, you can be a luchadora too! Today, Mexico’s Lucha Libre tradition comes to Durham as ten luchadoras face off in the ring at Motorco Music Hall. Bring the whole family! Come and enjoy lucha, sangre, y miedo from 12 pm to 3 pm and help us continue our work in the community. Proceeds of this round will help us continue to stop deportations, organize youth empowerment summits and Conoce Tus Derechos trainings. Admission is $5 and children under 12 get in free. I hope to see you there. But if you can’t make it and would like to contribute, consider making a donation by clicking here. Thank you for your support!

Victor needs your help!

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. Victor is currently being held in Alamance County Jail and could be transferred to an immigration detention center in Georgia any minute now. He faces imminent deportation and we need your help to stop it!

Make a phone call NOW to DC ICE:

John Morton 1-800-394-5855 or 202-732-3000

Sample Script: “Hi, I was calling to ask that ICE drop the hold on Victor de la Cruz (A#: 070839662). Victor is a hardworking father of three US citizen children. He had to spend Christmas and New Year’s away from his family. He is DREAM Act eligible and aspires to have his own landscaping business. ICE, drop the hold on Victor now so he can be back with his family!”

After you make your call, ask 5 of your friends to call too!

Catherine Orr, a North Carolina-based documentarian, will be screening her film “Dreams Delayed” tonight, May 4 in Carroll Hall (room 305) at UNC Chapel Hill. The film will discuss the lives of undocumented immigrants, educators and those affected by both immigration policy and a lack of access to education. Our own Jose Rico will be featured in the film and joining the conversation afterward.
