URGENT! HELP STOP POLICE BRUTALITY VICTIM'S DEPORTATION SET ON FEB 16TH!

Loving brother and son, Jose Eduardo Aguilar-Trejo (A#205076807), also know as Lalo, was brought into the U.S. at the age of 10-years old, a determined youth who dreams of using the arts, specifically film, to teach and raise awareness of the Latino suffrage. He is a DREAMer and die-heart advocator for education and immigration rights, who holds the motivation, compassion, and willingness to help bring justice to the oppressed community.

A former student of Utah Valley University, he currently enrolled in Salt Lake Community College with hopes to continue his education in the Spring semester of 2012. An active member of the Salt Lake Dream Team, Lalo found himself at the wrong place and at the wrong time, leading him to an UNJUST police incident that landed him with a badly bruised and swollen face and shoulder. Investigation was avoided by the justice system. Video footage was erased by the Bostan Buildings security.

Now our transcending DREAM Act eligible respected student is detained in jail and WILL BE DEPORTED ON FEBRUARY 16, 2012! A victim of domestic violence, Lalo has been in the psychiatric ward because of the mistreatment by employees in Immigration & Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Spanish Fork, Utah detention center.

If Lalo is deported to his hometown, Juarez, Mexico, his life will be in danger!

Please take few seconds out of your day to SIGN the petition requesting he receives discretionary relief. You can make the difference for this unjustly suffering young man with a future. All that is needed is your signature TO GET LALO BACK TO HIS FAMILY!

I just signed the following petition addressed to: Lalo Aguilar.

----------------
A loving brother and son, Jose Eduardo Aguilar-Trejo (A#205076807), was brought into the U.S. at the age of 10. Shortly after he was a victim of domestic violence. Known as Lalo to his friends and family, Jose is a determined individual who dreams of using the arts, specifically film, to teach and raise awareness of Latino suffrage. A die-hard advocate for education and immigrant rights, Lalo is a DREAMer who holds the motivation and compassion to advocate justice for the oppressed in his community.

A former student of Utah Valley University, Lalo is currently enrolled at Salt Lake Community College with hopes of continuing his education Spring 2012. An active member of the Salt Lake Dream Team, Lalo is a friend to any stranger and is always looking for ways to serve others.

Lalo, however, recently found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time.

On November 20, 2011, shortly after approaching two officers to get their opinion on Utah’s Arizona-lite law, HB497, Lalo was subject to an UNJUST police incident that landed him with a badly bruised and swollen face and shoulder. Investigation was avoided by the justice system. Video footage was erased by the Bostan Buildings' security. A DREAM Act eligible student, Lalo now sits behind bars and WILL BE DEPORTED ON FEBRUARY 16, 2012! A victim of domestic violence, Lalo has been in the psychiatric ward because of the mistreatment by employees in Immigration & Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Spanish Fork, Utah detention center.

Despite being American in every way but legal status, Lalo’s future is now in the hands of immigration officials. For this reason, we call upon you to stand in solidarity with Jose Eduardo Aguilar-Trejo. We need your help to convince the immigration court, who has the power and ability, to stop his deportation.

Please help Lalo stay in this country.

Sincerely,
