Don't deport Steve Li: Let a San Francisco college student come home

This petition made change with 379 supporters!

Steve, a 20 year old City College of San Francisco student, is ethnically Chinese but was born in Peru, and was brought to the United States when he was only 12 years old. He is an honors student, a campus leader, and actively involved in his church. He is currently working towards a degree for a career in nursing.

In September, Steve and his family were arrested in an immigration raid at their home in San Francisco. It was not until then that Steve learned he had been ordered for deportation when he was 15 years old when his parents’ appeal for asylum was denied.

Steve is now being detained in Arizona and could be deported at any moment to Peru, where he has no family or friends. Steve would be homeless upon arrival. Steve is a San Franciscan. He attended Francisco Middle School, graduated from Washington High School, and was working hard to support his family and to contribute to this community.

Our staff recently met with Steve’s mother and we are also working with his attorneys at the Asian Law Caucus.

Together we are asking for your help to help bring Steve home. Please send a letter to California Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer urging them to grant Steve a “deferred action.”
