Yadira Verdusco has been in federal custody since March 2013, charged with illegal entry into the country despite the fact that she has only been out of the country for ten minutes in 37 years. Yadira maintains her innocence, and says she can prove she is in America legally, but has not been given a hearing to tell her side.
To make matters worse, ICE agents mistreated Yadira while in their custody and did not disclose information to the U.S. Attorney that could have made Yadira bond eligible. Yadira is a surgical technician at Medical City Dallas and has taught in the Dallas County Community College District. She is married to an American citizen and is the mother of three, including a U.S. Marine on active duty. Yadira also suffers from a potentially serious medical condition that is being ignored. Yadira deserves to be released on bond and reunited with her family while she awaits trial. We petition District Judge O'Connor to grant an emergency hearing for a release on bond. Please join our cause! Her story has been featured on Examiner.com and Yahoo, but her case needs more attention! For more information on Yadira, visit ICIE.us.
