Save the Mejia-Perez Family
Stop Deportation of the Mejia-Perez Family
We have less than a week to stop the forceful and permanent separation of our neighbor and an American family. Gilbert Mejia-Perez is currently in court proceedings concerning his removal. His parents are scheduled to be deported from the United States on November 3rd - less than a week from today.
TOMORROW IS SALVADOR MEJIA'S BIRTHDAY. HIS ONLY WISH IS FOR HIS FAMILY TO REMAIN IN THE UNITED STATES. HIS LAST HOPE IS SENATOR FEINSTEIN.
As part of our efforts to save this family, we are going to be holding a vigil in front of Senator Feisntein's office. We'll be outside her building to show our support for this family. We hope to have your presence. But even if you can't make it, please help us by spreading the word.
We will also have a call-in day on Thursday, Nov. 29th (same day as the vigil), and we ask that you take a few minutes to call the following people:
Please take the following actions for Gilbert and his family:
Call Senator Feinstein at (202) 224-3841 and urge her to introduce a private bill for the Mejia- Perez Family immediately. They are a mixed-status family, composed of a DREAM Act student, two US Citizen children, and hardworking, undocumented parents, who left their home country out of fear for their lives. They contribute to their community in every way possible and California is their home.
Call the local ICE Field Office Director, Timothy Aitken, at 415.844.5512 and urge him to grant a deferred action for the Mejia-Perez family. Deportation of the parents, Salvador and Elida, would cause exceptional hardship for the two US Citizen daughters, ages 4 and 13, both of whom have serious and ongoing medical needs.
Call DHS Assistant Secretary John Morton at 202.732.3000 and urge him to grant the deferred action for the family.
