A New Jersey father and husband needs our urgent help. Vitor Pukri, an Albanian immigrant from Clifton, New Jersey, has been detained by ICE on February 6th and has been in an immigration prison since.

Vitor and his family were baited by ICE after they were told they won the diversity visa lottery. USCIS had them spend weeks processing papers, having their biometrics taken and allowed them to spend thousands of dollars to file for a visa that Immigration never planned to give them. Upon their arrival at an “interview”, both Vitor and his wife were detained by ICE and taken to a jail. This was blatantly intentional and cruel.

Vitor has been in the United States for 17 years, working as a humble truck driver, providing for his family and even paying taxes to a country that is now using his tax dollars to deport him. Vitor faces grave danger if he is forced to return to Albania due to a blood feud that has threatened his family’s life. If ICE decided to deport Vitor, they will be signing his death warrant.  

Vitor has three children, including a ten year old U.S. citizen, who are under great emotional and financial duress after the arrest of their father. It is now on the community to rally our support for Vitor's immediate release and reunite him with his family! Please sign the petition and write to and call the ICE prison he is currently being held in!
