On October 28th, 2010, two days after Regina's 20th birthday; ICE agents took her and her mother into custody. They were taken into custody because their Asylum case (a path to citizenship) was denied and they had a final order of removal. However their Asylum case is pending for a re-appeal when they were picked up. It had the potential to be reopened. Now they're being detained and were facing deportation. The 9th circuit has granted a temporary stay of removal since their case is pending. At the moment they're still being detained when ICE has no reason to hold them. Is this how America treats law abiding individuals that are doing the right thing? They pay taxes and follow the right steps to try to get citizenship. Why do we subject them to cruel and unusual punishment, and detain them among criminals in a Jail when they have done nothing wrong? So we the family are asking you to help sign the petition telling / asking them to release Regina Husman (A075-718-109) and her mother Eveline Rahardja (A075-718-107).
If they're not released, they will spend Christmas and New Years in the detention facility as they have done so already with Thanksgiving.
