Andrea Huerfano is a Colombian native who moved with her family to the US in 2001, when she was 14. Her father sought political asylum. He passed away in 2005, while his application was under review.
Andrea has been deeply involved in the community, serving as a volunteer for a number of organizations, including Florida Immigrant Coalition and the DREAM Team coalition while a student at Florida State University. She earned a national Fellowship to participate in PolitiCorps in 2008, where she spearheaded an effort to register more than 4,000 voters and educate low-income communities about criminal justice legislation in Oregon. She was considered one of the hardest-working and most promising Fellows in the program. At the end of the Fellowship she supported Get Out the Vote efforts in Ohio during the 2008 general election.
On December 8th, Andrea went to pay a traffic ticket and was detained after her immigration status was looked into. We have since learned that there is an order of deportation in Andrea's name, and that they may be ready to deport her as early as this week.
1. Call Janet Napolitano, Director of Department of Homeland Security, and leave comments of support for Andrea and also ask that DHS stop her deportation: 202-282-8495 **note this is an answering machine, once it is full it is out of commission for day. Fill it up now with Andrea calls.
2. Call Assistant Secretary to ICE, John Morton and leave a message urging him to take action and defer Andrea’s deportation: 202.732.3000. This is a live comment line, i.e. a human being will pick up and take your message. Be very polite “I am calling to leave a message of support for Andrea Huerfano who is being deported tomorrow, . I ask that Director Morton contact Field Director Rebbecca and defer Andrea’s deportation, she is an asset to this country.”
Note: **You may be advised to redirect your call to the Florida field office, whose number is below. It is still important for the D.C. office to register the number of calls received on her behalf.
3. Call the Miami field office (Miami Office of Detention and Removal Operations) at (305) 207-2001 to urge deferral on Andrea's case. If necessary, you can provide them with her case number, A079 492 648.
