Victory

Astrid Silva and Jamie Alegre are both students and DREAM activists but they’d never met, never spoken, never lived in the same city, and certainly never met each other’s parents. But, on September 20th, Jamie came across an urgent plea on Facebook asking for help for Astrid’s dad, who had been detained and placed in deportation proceedings.

Jamie took initiative and decided to launch a campaign on Change.org. Two days -- 594 signatures, and a last-minute petition delivery -- later, Astrid’s dad came home.

“It was a proof that distance shall never stop dreams and dreamers from being connected. I want others to know that it's not impossible to help someone just because they're far away,” says Jamie.

A hardworking father (to a friend and incredible activist) who has helped make our country better and has been a law abiding citizen, Cesar Carlos Silva, could be deported on Thursday morning. TAKE ACTION! Send a message to authorities, and remind them our immigration system is BROKEN!

      Jamie, I would have to agree with you the immigration system is broken I've seen and heard a lot of what these people had to go threw when there being held away from there family. The only reason how I know is because I use to work at one of the facilities and I didn't agree on how they them there and the amount of money they ask for. I wish you and your family the best of luck.

      If a person pays taxes, is a good law abiding person, teaches his children right from wrong and wants to be in the USA , then I say lets figure this out and allow him to stay here.

      I am signing this because our immigration system is not working, breaking up innocent families that don't deserve it. We need immigration reform!!!!!!!!!
