Fifteen-year-old United States citizen Fredi Reyes is making a desperate plea to his community to help stop the Obama administration from deporting his mother. Orfilia Reyes unsuccessfully applied for asylum from Guatemala after a family member had been assassinated. Unlike many others, she came to the United States legally with a visitor's visa.
Fredi describes the ordeal: "I find myself overwhelmed. Not only do I have to worry about school, homework, worrying what other people think about me, I also have to deal with this."
Should the Administration deport his mother Fredi faces the very real possibility of being placed with social services.
A vigil has been organized tomorrow (May 15) at Our Lady of Grace Church in Greensboro, N.C., between 6:30-8:00p.m. Please attend if you are in the area.
