ICE: Stop the Deportation of Natividad Matias Mendoza!

ICE - (Immigration Customs Enforcement) recently denied my client Natividad Matias Mendoza's administrative stay of removal, as has the Immigration Judge in Detroit, Michigan, where she lived until recently. On Monday, March 25th 2013, we are renewing our request for a stay of removal. Your help is urgently needed!

Natividad is scheduled to be deported to Guatemala in the early hours of Tuesday, March 26th 2013. She has not been in Guatemala in 20 years, and faces great risk of persecution, violence and poverty if removed from the U.S.

Please sign this petition and share it as widely as possible to call on ICE to stop the deportation of Natividad Matias Mendoza!

She is a mother of three U.S. citizen children ages 12, 7, and 2, and has been in the United States for 15 years. Natividad is a crucial part of her family and community in Oakland, California and deserves to remain united with her family. She has done no wrong. She is in the U.S. because she was forced to flee the violence of Guatemala during the Civil War in the early 1990s to seek a better life for herself and her children.

Tell ICE that this deportation must stop! Demand that ICE halt Natividad's removal immediately!


Letter to
Department of Homeland Security - Immigration Customs Enforcement Timothy Aitken, Field Office Director (SF)
Natividad Matias Mendoza, A-096-494-649, is scheduled to be deported on Tuesday, March 26th 2013 from SFO to Guatemala City. This letter accompanies a renewed request to administratively stay her removal.

Natividad is a mother of three U.S. citizen children ages 12, 7, and 2 and has been in the United States for 15 years. She has not been in Guatemala in 20 years, and faces great risk of persecution, violence and poverty if removed from the U.S.. Natividad is a crucial part of her family and community in Oakland, California and deserves to remain united with her family. She has done no wrong. She is in the U.S. because she was forced to flee the violence of Guatemala during the Civil War in the early 1990s to seek a better life for herself and her children.

She is a prime candidate for prosecutorial discretion as she arrived in the U.S. when she was just a teenager, has lived in the U.S. for 15 years with her husband and 3 U.S. Citizens children, and maintains a credible fear of returning to Guatemala, where she has no family ties and faces persecution. We request that ICE exercise prosecutorial discretion and grant Natividad deferred action so that she may remain united with her family while her husband pursues avenues of immigration relief available to both himself and to Natividad.
