Tell ICE to Stop the Deportation of Two-Time Idaho Youth of the Year Luis Albizo

      Alonso Chehade

      Seattle, WA

October 2011


When DREAM activist Alonso Chehade put up a petition to stop the deportation of Luis Albizo, things were looking bleak. The recent college graduate, who was brought to the U.S. when he was 5 years old, faced a final hearing the next day. But amazingly, more than 1,600 supporters mobilized urgently within 24 hours to sign and share Luis’s petition on social media. It worked! The passionate, life-long volunteer has been granted prosecutorial discretion and will not be deported. He will be able to continue contributing to the community he has always called home. 

Because Luis was brought to the U.S. at age of five, has an outstanding track record of awards and volunteer activities, poses no national security or public safety concern, and merits a favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion to stop his deportation scheduled for this coming Tuesday, October 11, 2011.

      I went to school with Luis, and while I didn't get to know him as well as I wish I had it was easy to tell that he was a genuine and kind person that would be a great part of any community.
