On Monday, November 15th, 2010, Jennifer Abreu was taken into ICE custody after a minor traffic violation led officers to find a deportation order written in her name.
Jennifer, who immigrated to the United States as a 13 year old, is a journalism student at Bluegrass Community and Technical College. If action is not taken now, Jennifer will spend Thanksgiving and her 19th birthday in a detention center awaiting deportation. See a plea from friends and teachers to free Jennifer.
