 All little kids worry about losing a parent one time or another.  For Sigifredo Pizaña, the idle worry of a child has turned into the reality of a young teen.  Sigifredo’s father was stopped by Michigan law enforcement.   A simple ticket turned out to be a date with ICE.  The process has moved very quickly for Sigifredo.

Stormy Waters on Lake Michigan

 

The family, exhausted by the constant anti-Latino sentiment, tired of trying to do things the legal way in a country that does not give you the option, tired of looking for jobs that pay little, often with employers who have no problem taking advantage of undocumented immigrants, well let’s just say the family has made a crucial decision.  They are not going to wait in line.  They are just giving up on the American dream.

 

That is very sad considering had ICE picked Sigi’s dad up 8 months later, things might be different.  That is how close Sigifredo’s dad is to being in the United States for 10 years.   With 10 years under his belt the Mexican immigrant stood a chance, according to attorneys.  But being 8 months short of the 10 year period leaves everyone out in the cold.  Especially Sigifredo.

 A father gives up on the system

Young Sigi is a musician.  He wants to go to school.  He would like to break the chain of poverty which has strapped him and his family for generations.  He even wants to study something most people don’t know a lot about, actuarial science.  That is how they figure out what to charge for life insurance, in case you need to ask.  I had to ask.

If we throw the dreams of our youth away where will our future lie?

Please Help This Dreamer Out With

A Small Donation

The 19 year old youth will qualify under the Dream Act if he stays.  If Sigifredo goes back to Mexico with the family, there won’t be any Dream Act for him.  He won’t qualify.  Under most drafts of the Act, a student needs to have arrived by their 16th birthday.  Sigifredo meets that requirement so long as he does not leave the country.  Once he steps foot outside of the US, all bets are  0ff.

 

We have a Dreamer whose life and dreams are under attack.  The youth needs to make some fast decisions and none of them are nice.   Staying in the United States means parting with his family, likely for many years.  Going to Mexico means giving it all up.  Sigifredo needs our help.  Please, please…this one time, please give a hand up to a young person who does not want a handout.

 

 

Sigifredo will be forced to leave the family home.  Sunday is the last day in the US for his father.  The rest of the family will follow in a few days.  Sigi has no one.  There is a community willing to help Sigifredo out, but he has to get there on his own.  Even then, he will mostly be on his own.  At the least, he needs to travel to friendly hands.  He needs to find a place where a mere traffic stop does not mean deportation.
