Help stop deportation of Arizona dreamer Araceli

Araceli was 7 years old when she came to the United States with her parents. She has lived in Tucson, Arizona for over 20 years, and has grown up to be  active member of her church community. On March 18, 2008, an immigration raid at a Tucson fast-food restaurant dramatically changed the lives of 11 workers and their families.Araceli was one of them; this 20-year Tucson resident, mother and wife suddenly found herself detained for five months before she was released to fight her case.

Araceli faces deportation in early November, and unless we act now the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will deport Araceli.

Help us flood their offices and urge them stop her deportation:
1. Call DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, 202-282-8495 (message line)
2. Call Assistant Secretary John Morton, 202-732-3000 (live line)
3. Send DHS a fax!

Just an update: Araceli was granted deferred action, thanks to the work done by the community throughout.

I truly hope that none of the people involved in the deportation of Aracely, will never find themselves in a situation where one of their family members is taken away from them in any manner. This is a working mother trying to provide for her family, she is not a criminal and is people like her that will generate progress in our country, she is more of a benefit to this country and her family, than to those who wish to deport her.

This deportation is against everything our country stands for…freedom and justice for all. She is a working mother, brought here as a child. How was this her fault? Instead of deporting her DHS should be protecting her from companies who prey on cheap labor. Are you deporting them too or are they still open for business? As a nation we can no longer stand silently in the tension having our cake and eating it too–cheap labor with no one truly paying but the immigrants whose lives are ruined by companies & government who exploit them and then ship them home. Please do NOT deport this MOTHER! Do NOT destroy a FAMILY. Please give her a chance to stay.

STAY INFORMED
