 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.

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.

Sigifredo is an honors student who was taking AP classes in high school.  He will make a great citizen if he only gets a chance.

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.

Stop Deportation Of Alberto Yañez – Dreamer Denied The Dream


 

 

 

Alberto Yañez

 

Arrested by ICE

Please help stop his deportation!

 

 

One more Dreamer facing life in a strange land!

 

 

Yañez, from Elma, Washington, is facing deportation.  “Going home” is not something that is going to be an easy fit for the 24 year old. That is because he came to the US when he was only a year a half old.

 

 

Sure, he walked here.  Not really.  More likely, he was carried on the backs of relatives.  But an unfair immigration system does not care this young person had no say in crossing the border or exceeding a stay under a visa or a thousand other reasons why they can deport you. 

 

 

 

Under our justice system, we don’t usually hold babies responsible for committing what amounts to an administrative violation of immigration rules.  Don’t tell anyone, but most babies don’t have a clue what the border is, much less how to cross it.  How can they be responsible for violating the rules?  Immigration says Alberto has to go home anyway.

That is not to say Alberto is anything short on the brains department. In third grade, Alberto was placed into a program for gifted children.  He was taking AP courses while in high school competing against his US born friends who were also upwardly mobile.  After getting to Washington he enrolled in a program called “running smart”, which allowed him to graduate from South Puget Sound Community College only 6 months after graduating from high school.

Alberto’s next step was Evergreen State College where he completed 5 quarters while holding down a full time job.  It had to be that way.  Alberto is the father of three children.  He has a family to support.

But starting an early family has not kept this youth from reaching for the American Dream.  Alberto started his own business so he would have enough flexible time to be a good father and go back to school.  He wants to be a pharmacist tech and has been studying at Clover Park Technical College.  Despite working his tail off in two jobs and taking care of his children, he got a B in one of his classes during his first quarter at Clover.  He managed A’s in his other three classes.

Into every life some rain must fall.  For Alberto that rainy day came on November 16th, 2010.  Alberto was detained by ICE at his home.  That started a nightmare stay in ICE detention where he spent 30 agonizing days away from his family, away from his work and out of school.

 

 

 

Alberto’s next scheduled hearing is July 7th, 2011.  He may face deportation today.  His family and friends are asking you to sign a petition on his behalf.  Even if he does not get a free ride across the border today, meaning maybe his case might be continued, he can still use your support.  These cases tend to take awhile.  Strong community support is critical for successful candidates.

Clover Park Technical College


Alberto is exactly the kind of case they are talking about when they say President Barak Obama should stop deportations of Dream Act eligible students.  These include people who had little choice, or worse, have no memory about how they came to the US.  Either they are in school or soon to be in school.  Likely, they have strong family ties to the US, including children or parents who are US citizens.  Imagine what a deportation will do to the future of three kids who could be forced to grow up without a father.

 

 

 

Please sign Alberto’s petition

 

 

 

Please sign the petition originally penned by Richard Hartwell, an activist fighting his heart out for the passage of the Dream Act.  Let’s just say, if you have Richard on your side you have a darn good friend!
