We, the undersigned, stand in solidarity with Mrs. Ceila Robles Bustillo, who will be ripped apart from her family on July 16, 2013 and deported to Honduras. She has been a Fairfax, VA resident since 2005. She is the mother of a US citizen son, an active member of her Church, and an important voice for immigrants in her community.
Deporting Celia poses a threat to her son Hendrick who suffers from numerous medical problems. He has had two different surgeries for his ears and misses school often. Hendrick now will be separated from his mother on the day before his 7th birthday.
Ceila’s removal from the country would be an alarming violation of the principles of family unity. This nightmare started after she was caught driving without a driver’s license. The reason she drove the day she was stopped is that her husband had just undergone eye surgery. Ceila already has a plane ticket to Honduras for Tuesday July 16, 2013.
In signing this petition, we voice our support for her and her family and ask that she be granted discretionary relief so that she may remain in the United States with those that love and need her.
