Victory! After a national outporing of support for Lidianne, the Florida teen whose family was killed in a car crash, an ICE spokesperson confirms that she will not be facing deportation. The news came just days after the immigrant youth network Dream Activist started a petition on Change.org

Lidiane Carmo was on her way back from a religious conference in Florida, with her entire family, when they were involved a car accident. Lidiane's parents, sister, and uncle were among the 11 people who died in the accident. Lidiane was sent to a Florida hospital but now ICE wants to deport her to Brazil, a country she hasn't been to since she was 3 years old!

Take action and tell ICE that Lidiane is already suffering enough! She needs to be with people who love her, not in a country where she has no one.

Call ICE at 202.732.3000 or 202-732-3100

Sample Script: "Hi, I am calling to ask that the deportation of Lidiane Carmo be stopped. Lidiane, who is 15 years old, lost her entire family in a car crash on her way back to Georgia from a religious conference in Florida. She is already suffering enough. It is cruel to deport her to Brazil, a country she hasn't been to since she was 3 years old where she knows no one. Don't deport Lidiane."

PLEASE SHARE THIS PETITION AND ACTION ALERT WITH YOUR FRIENDS!

      I believe in a common sense approach and it appears that it is not being used in this case.
