Petition Closed

Mario Perez, a 22-year-old mathematics and statistics major, is a senior at Stephen F. Austin (SFA) State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. He was brought from Mexico when he was five years old, but didn't find out he was undocumented until he began applying for college.

He is now awaiting a deportation hearing in March after a traffic stop for rolling through a stop sign near campus and some unpaid traffic tickets got him arrested and turned into ICE. Mario is a member of the nation's oldest black Greek-letter fraternity Alpha Phi Alpha, whose local lota Mu chapter is using their alumni network to fight to keep their undocumented Hispanic brother home where he belongs.  

Mario may not be a U.S. citizen, but he only understands the American way of life and he needs as much help as he can get. Stand with Alpha Phi Alpha to keep Mario Perez home by signing and sharing his petition today.
