DO NOT Deport Devoted Father and Head of Household!

Uriel Alberto (A# 089-828-718) needs to be near his son, Julian. He took a brave stand for immigrant rights, and now he may get deported for it.

Growing up in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Uriel’s life seemed full of hope. He graduated from Parkland High School, where he was a track star. He was offered scholarships for track by various college recruiters but was unable to accept them because of his immigration status.

Life got hard for Uriel, but he kept his head up. He attended Lees-McRae College, where he continued to run track despite not being able to accept a scholarship. Not everyone knew that he had also become the head of his family’s household, providing for his mother and sisters and defending them against an abusive father. While all that weight on his shoulders depressed him and led him to having a few run-ins with the law, he has done everything he can to stay above the fray and be a role model for his sisters and young son.

Help keep Uriel with his family and baby boy. His family depends on him, and so does his son. He financially provides for Julian and his family.

      Please add my name to the groundswell of citizens who recognize injustice whenever it rears its ugly head. ICE, DHS and other government agencies do NOT protect the country by this act of ignorance. Doing the right thing is NOT rocket science here. Free Uriel Alberto now.

      Because I know many people who are going through this right now and I want to help out in any way.

      There's hardly anything more respectable than a man who takes care of his child...

      Acoording to president Obama he should not be facing deportation because he is Dream Act eligible. e is the father of a US citizen child and sole caretaker of his sisters. He stood up for his community and sould be back home with his family. Please drop the ICE hold now.
