Maria Mendoza Sanchez started as a nursing home housekeeper and became a respected oncology nurse serving underprivileged patients at Highland Hospital in Oakland, CA.  She and her husband have lived in the U.S. over 20 years, raised their 4 children here, bought a house and had been good members of the community with no criminal records.  After 15 years of attempting to achieve permanent resident status, on August 17, 2017, ICE  deported Maria to Mexico with her husband, Eusebio, a truck driver.  

Maria was forced to break up her family, leaving her 16-year-old daughter in the U.S. to finish high school in the care of her 23-year-old daughter.  Too young to not be in the care of his parents, her 12-year-old son, who is a U.S. citizen and has only ever known California as his home, had to move to Mexico with Maria.

This is a travesty of justice and should never happen in the United States of America. What happened to only deporting criminals?

Dianne Feinstein has introduced a Senate Bill, S.1763 and Barbara Lee has introduced a House Bill, H.R.3818, to grant Maria, her husband and oldest daughter permanent residency.  Signing this petition shows your support for these bills:
