Stop Alejandra Juarez's Deportation
We are asking you to co-sponsor H.R. 6191 to allow Alejandra Juarez to remain in the United States with her children. We are also asking you to reach out to your colleagues on the Judiciary Committee in support of this bill.
Why is this important?
Update: Alejandra Juarez was deported on August 3, 2018. A bill has been introduced in the new Congress that will allow her to come home. Please sign our petition in support of the new bill.
Alejandra Juarez (Case # A077265754) is scheduled to be deported in August. She has lived in the United States for more than twenty years and has not committed any crimes since her illegal entry as a teenager. She came to the United States in 1998 to escape violence in Mexico. Since then, she has learned English, married a United States marine, raised their first daughter alone for two years while he served in Iraq, and continued to raise two daughters who are both U.S. citizens. She is a valued member of her church where she assists with their ministry to feed the poor.
Alejandra’s deportation will cause great harm to her children who were not even born when she came to the United States. Her oldest daughter Pamela wants to become a doctor and now faces the likelihood that she will graduate high school and start college without her mother, who has always been her biggest supporter, at her side. Pamela recently started working to save up money so that she can visit Alejandra in Mexico. Her youngest daughter Estela is too young to be without her mother, so Alejandra’s deportation will essentially deport her as well, even though she is a U.S. citizen and this country is the only home she has ever known.
Please allow Alejandra to stay in the United States with her children.
