  1. Petition to Save Mother of 3 from Deportation

    by , 06-07-2017 at 07:39 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)


    CLICK HERE to sign the petition.

    Minerva is a devoted, loving mother who has lived in North Carolina for the past 17 years. She first came to the United States seeking safety and special education for her oldest son who is blind as a result of complications from cancer. Minerva is the head of household for her 3 and 6 year old sons who are American citizens and her 21 year old son who has DACA.

    Since 2013, ICE has granted a routine stay of removal each year for Minerva and has given her permission to live in the United States. Minerva had her deportation suspended when she was granted prosecutorial discretion by the government several years ago, along with thousands of other people who were not a priority for deportation.

    Minerva has no criminal record and everything has remained the same in her case, with no changes. However, when Minerva met with ICE in Charlotte on May 25th, they ordered her to leave the country by June 30. Minerva is exploring legal options at this point, but is running out of time. Minerva needs you to sign the petition to stop her deportation and keep her and her children together and safe in North Carolina.

    Minerva tells her story in her own words:

    "My name is Minerva Garcia. I am the mother of four children, and I would do anything for them. I have lived in the United States for 17 years, and I have worked and paid taxes here. I own a home in Winston-Salem, NC. My oldest son is a Dreamer and my youngest two boys are American citizens. I have been ordered to leave the country at the end of June. Where I grew up, Guerrero, is one of the most dangerous places in Mexico.

    My oldest son is Eduardo. When he was 3 months old, he had cancer and was made blind. Guerrero was not safe, and there were no schools for him, so we came to the United States. My second son was Diego. Diego came with us to the United States, but when he was 9 years old he was diagnosed with leukemia. We had to fight cancer for a year and a half, and he died in 2007. My third son Antonio. He is here with me, and so is my baby, Mateo. They are three and six years old. They were born in the United States and are American citizens.

    I am a mother, and I have tried my whole adult life to be strong for my sons. I want them to grow up strong, kind, loyal, educated, and free. I know their best chance to be all of those things is to grow up here in North Carolina where they have always lived.
    If I am deported, Eduardo loses his mother's support and assistance, and I do not know what will happen to my sons. I fear they will not be safe. I fear they will not be free."

    Please help now by signing the petition to urge ICE to allow Minerva Cisneros Garcia to stay in the United States with her children.
