Hi, I am beginning this petition to urge ICE to release Alberto Ledezma, who is from Spring Hill, Kansas. Alberto is the father of 4 US citizen children. We ask that you release him immediately!
Alberto Ledezma and his wife, Cortney, have faithfully attended and regularly served at Blue Valley Baptist Church in Overland Park, Kansas, in the pre-school ministry for years.
Their girls are so sweet and full of love and obedience toward their parents. Such behavior speaks boldly of the stable family life they have provided for their children. Homeschooling her children, Cortney is very involved in her children’s lives. Olivia, their oldest daughter, is extremely helpful to her mother in helping to take care of the girls and home. With Alberto Ledezma gone, certainly much of the work falls on Olivia and her mother. They need him home!
Cortney shared a sweet story with me about how the girls would “dog-pile” their father, Alberto, when he would return home from work. They love and miss their attentive father! As Cortney shared, he provided much love and laughter in the home. They all miss that greatly. Alberto was a hard worker and faithfully provided for his family without requesting any outside financial help.
Cortney also shared with me how much she misses having her husband at home to pray with each night before they went to sleep. Alberto is/was the leader of their home. How our country needs good fathers and husbands (like Alberto) in the home! Sadly, Alberto has lost that gift of being there for his wife and children.
On a very simple level, to individually consider Mr. Ledezma’s family situation, it seems to make very good sense to allow this man to return to his family, who needs him. He has been a good man, who faithfully provided for his family and served his community through the local church.
Please, allow Mr. Ledezma to come home!

STOP THE DEPORTATION OF LOVING FATHER!
