Save a local, hard working family from deportation due to TPS

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!

Our country needs to care for our best and brightest, the hardworking and educated youth of Suffolk County.

This petition is to implore Senators Schumer and Gillibrand to protect the Espinal family. It is also a letter to remind Congressman Peter King of his January 2018 statement when he said, “TPS should be permanently extended,” and to ask him to protect the Espinal family from deportation.

Please read the story of the Espinal family:

Gabriela Espinal is the oldest of the Espinal children. She is a New York City Social Studies teacher with a masters degree and runs several programs for her students. It was because of our amazing Bay Shore schools that she is a teacher today.

Gabriela has three brothers. The eldest is Mauricio, a SUNY Maritime educated engineer who works in New York City. Gabriela’s two youngest brothers are Fabio and Carlos. Fabio is an Environmental Science Major at SUNY Buffalo. Carlos, a senior at Bay Shore High School, is a top athlete on the wrestling team, a leader in the peer support program, and part of the symphony band. All four have been here for the last 17 years under TPS.

According to Gabriela, their intellect, industriousness, and work ethic came from their parents, Claudia and Mauricio, who have worked tirelessly to provide for their family and raise them with the values that every American wants: access to the American Dream. They believe hard work, a good education, and determination will lead to success. They do not have criminal records and do not want a handout.

What the Espinal family needs:

What the Espinal family needs is what everyone would want: they need the government, to which they pay taxes, to recognize them as a permanent part of this country, their country and ours.

What you can do:

As we know, the Espinal family is one of hundreds of families affected by TPS in our community.

By signing this petition, you are letting our leaders know we are proud of our hard working Bay Shore families, that they are part of our community, and it’s families like the Espinals that make our community and our country great.
