Stop the deportation of Nury Chavarria, mother of four, church member, and sole supporter of 4 ch...

Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.

Nury has been told to self deport by July 20th, or she will be taken into custody. Nury has one child with Cerebral Palsy - and 3 other minor children. Nury's kids need her. She is the sole provider.

Why is this important?

UPDATE: Nury's request for a stay has been DENIED. She was scheduled to leave her 4 children on Thursday, July 20th. This would have meant she could not enter the US for 10 years. Instead, Nury has chosen to take sanctuary in a church in New Haven.

We're contininuing to support the children through a GoFundMe page, as Nury Chavarria is now considered a fugitive and cannot financially support her children. But, she can hug them. She's a mom.

Nury is not a criminal- she's a law abiding mother whose children need her. She fled the violence of Guatemala in 1993 seeking asylum in the US. She is a working mother who has complied with ICE requests for 24 years.
There is NO COMPELLING reason to deport a young mother with dependent US children. Help us stop this inhumane treatment of our neighbors. This petition is sponsored by CT Shoreline Indivisible.
