URGENT! HELP STOP POLICE BRUTALITY VICTIM'S DEPORTATION SET ON FEB 16TH!

    1. Petition by

      Salt Lake Dream Team END Campaign

Loving brother and son, Jose Eduardo Aguilar-Trejo (A#205076807), also know as Lalo, was brought into the U.S. at the age of 10-years old, a determined youth who dreams of using the arts, specifically film, to teach and raise awareness of the Latino suffrage. He is a DREAMer and die-heart advocator for education and immigration rights, who holds the motivation, compassion, and willingness to help bring justice to the oppressed community.

A former student of Utah Valley University, he currently enrolled in Salt Lake Community College with hopes to continue his education in the Spring semester of 2012. An active member of the Salt Lake Dream Team, Lalo found himself at the wrong place and at the wrong time, leading him to an UNJUST police incident that landed him with a badly bruised and swollen face and shoulder. Investigation was avoided by the justice system. Video footage was erased by the Bostan Buildings security.

Now our transcending DREAM Act eligible respected student is detained in jail and WILL BE DEPORTED ON FEBRUARY 16, 2012! A victim of domestic violence, Lalo has been in the psychiatric ward because of the mistreatment by employees in Immigration & Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Spanish Fork, Utah detention center.

If Lalo is deported to his hometown, Juarez, Mexico, his life will be in danger!

Please take few seconds out of your day to SIGN the petition requesting he receives discretionary relief. You can make the difference for this unjustly suffering young man with a future. All that is needed is your signature TO GET LALO BACK TO HIS FAMILY!

      Deportation is counterproductive to the mission and future growth of this country. Apparently the police department of West Jordan is severely understaffed and has trouble with real crime, but of course, we waste our resources hunting "illegals" instead. Drop it.

      The DREAM act should have been passed a decade ago. The only reason it hasn't so far is a petty political game being played by the GOP, and lives are being ruined as a result.
