On June 26, our dear friend Hilda Ramirez received a letter from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) stating she owed the government $303,620 for "willfully" failing to depart the US after receiving a final removal order. It is believed to be a tactic of intimidation and psychological abuse against her and other immigrants in Sanctuary. Hilda is determined to fight this injustice! She wants her human rights to be respected and freedom for herself and her son!
Any help you can give towards the legal battle we have to fight against the injustice of this absurd fine, is appreciated. Thank you for your support.
We, the Austin Sanctuary Network, stand in solidarity with undocumented immigrants who are being held unjustly and denied legal status.
The Austin Sanctuary Network, is looking for a dynamic organizer to help us in our important work of directly supporting three immigrants: Hilda Ramirez, her son Ivan, and Alirio Gamez who are living in sanctuary at two member congregations in Austin, Texas.
If deported, Hilda and Alirio would face certain death in their home countries and Ivan would be separated from his loving mother. Austin Sanctuary Network is preventing them from being deported and working to ensure that their basic human rights of life, liberty, and safety are protected.
To continue our mission and strengthen our organization, we need an additional $15,000 to hire a dynamic professional organizer. Will you help us by making a tax deductible donation to this campaign?
Hilda, Ivan, and Alirio need our help and support to advocate for their freedom. Your donation aids the Austin Sanctuary Network as it works to become stronger and furthers our mission of protecting the human rights of immigrants across the United States. A salaried organizer will help us expand our local nonprofit into a powerful national advocacy organization that helps even more immigrants who are in danger.
