My father’s next meeting with ICE is this tomorrow, June 6th. We know that the pressure is working and that ICE is thinking twice about deporting him – but we don’t know what will happen next.
I’ll be walking into our meeting with thousands of your petition signatures. Can you also help us flood ICE with phone calls today, to make sure they know people are paying attention?
When we went to meet with ICE a month ago, we thought they might tell us that my father had to leave the country right away. They had ordered us to buy a one-way ticket to Mexico and bring it to the meeting.
But the support from you and thousands of people across the country clearly made a difference. After being flooded with your phone calls, and seeing more than 20,000 of your petitions on their desk that day, ICE told us that we should file for a “stay of removal” for my father, which would allow him to stay in the country.
ICE hasn’t told us yet whether they’re granting or denying the stay of removal. We’re hopeful that they will give us good news tomorrow, but we really don’t know what will happen. My father still has his one-way ticket to Mexico for June 18th. We need to keep the pressure on.
Thank you so much for everything you’re doing for my family and others facing deportation.
