USCIS - Approve Deferred Action for Noe's Parents!

This petition made change with 29,647 supporters!


Noe is a three-year old U.S. citizen in need of lifesaving kidney surgery in August. In order to obtain that surgery, Noe's parents have asked U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to grant them "deferred action" so that they can transport him to and from the hospital through border checkpoints. USCIS Field Office Director Norma A. Limon has just denied that request, and we would like your help in getting USCIS to reconsider that decision.

Noe was born with a myelomeningocele, the most serious form of spina bifida and a neurogenic bladder. He is currently under the care of a team of surgeons, doctors, therapist and specialists working in collaboration to provide him the best treatment and care. Noe has already undergone 10 surgeries. He is unable to walk, eat a normal diet, drink anything other than water, or go to the bathroom. He is 100% dependent on his parents, who love him dearly.

Little Noe's parents, Noe and Wendy, were in the U.S. on vacation as tourists while Wendy was pregnant. She started having contractions, and her sonogram revealed that baby Noe's head was larger than normal, and other abnormalities. Wendy had prenatal care in Mexico and was never made aware of any issues. She had an emergency c-section, and baby Noe was airlifted to the hospital. After Noe's birth, they were able to travel to Corpus Christi to obtain Noe's surgical and medical care using their tourist visas, but last October, they were stopped at the checkpoint in Sarita and told that they needed a travel document in addition to their visas.

The family's lawyer immediately made a request for "Deferred Action Based on Humanitarian Reasons." In December, USCIS asked for more evidence to support that request. Everything was submitted, and a few days ago the request was denied without explanation. 

If Noe and Wendy take little Noe to the surgery he needs without USCIS permission to be in the country, they will likely be detained and deported away from the medical care that is saving his life. No parent should have to make that choice.

Sign and demand that USCIS allow this loving family to care for their son in the United States.
