Armando is an artist who brings people together in the small Eastern Idaho town he lives in and has lived in since being brought here as a young boy. His vibrant paintings hang on the walls of local coffee shops and galleries. Armando inspires other artists to follow their passions. When Armando isn’t painting, he gives poetry readings at local gatherings, visits and revisits classics of British and American literature, hikes in the beautiful Idaho wilderness, coaches soccer at his nephew’s elementary school, studies the Bible, and travels around town on his skateboard.
Recently, Armando was arrested for driving without a license, and now he is in deportation proceedings. In a matter of days, his family and friends were able to get a very large amount of letters of support. Armando is a very well loved member of the Idaho Falls community. We need to close Armando’s case.
If Armando’s case is closed, he will be able to get a green card soon thanks to a petition filed for him years ago. Please tell government lawyers that Armando belongs here, with his family and friends, making life a little bit more beautiful for those around him.
