Senator Dianne Feinstein: Submit a Private Bill and STOP the deportation of Maria Mendoza-Sanchez

Maria Guadalupe Mendoza-Sanchez (A#095-592-618) is a nursing student from Oakland, California and a caring mother of 4 children who are U.S. Citizens. She and her husband Eusebio Sanchez-Mejia (A#095-592-617) are scheduled to be deported on September 4th, 2013. Help us stop her deportation.

Maria came to the U.S. from Mexico in 1992, and has worked hard to make a good life for her family and give back to the community. Maria worked as a housekeeper, and put herself through school to be a Certified Nursing Assistant and then a Licensed Vocational Nurse. She has been working as a nurse at Alameda Hospital, is currently continuing to pursue her education at Holy Names University in Oakland, California, where she is one semester away from achieving her Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

Maria and her husband Eusebio have spent the last 21 years living and raising a family in Oakland, California. They have raised 4 children who are U.S. citizens, and if she and her husband are deported, their family will be broken apart. If Maria is deported, her children will be forced to grow up without loving parents to support them.

Please urge Senator Dianne Feinstein to submit a private bill for Maria (A#095-592-618) so that she, Eusebio (A#095-592-617), Vianney, Elizabeth, Melin and Jesus and can keep their family together.
