ProblemThe problem is Slain and Murdered Hania Aguilar’s father is in Guatemala and he needs permission to be Expedited to the United States in order to see his daughter one last time, say his goodbyes and attend her funeral.

Petition to Customs and Border patrol/ICE

The Release of Filiberto Saucedo

On Saturday, December 1, 2018 my father Filiberto Saucedo was traveling from California to Arizona for work when he was pulled over by border patrol. He is now in process of removal (deportation). Before being detained he was able to send me one last text that read “Mija me para migración”. As a daughter of an illegal immigrant I believe that those are the most frightening words you can hear/see.I feel as if my world has come crumbling down because of fear and sadness. Fear, because my father has not visited nor lived in his home country for over 25 years. He doesn’t know what life is like in Mexico anymore. His home is here in Los Angeles with his family and friends. And I am saddened because of the absence of my father. He will miss out on so many thing due to his immigration status.Things that we take for granted like being able to see him regularly, birthdays and celebrations, and seeing his grand children grow up. He is a very hardworking family man that was just trying to earn an honest living. My father can brighten up your day with just his smile, one of his jokes, or even his funny dance moves. Anyone that knows my dad can vouch that he is a wonderful human being and full of life!!  That is why I asked that you find it in your heart to sign this petition so that my dad can come back home where he belongs and is needed. . Please pass this along to get as many signatures as we can so that my dad can come home! Thank you,  Stephanie Saucedo  A proud daughter of an illegal immigrant

Please Help Bring My Dad Back Home to His Family

My father Francisco Javier Adin was born in Jalisco, Mexico. In search of a better life, he immigrated to the U.S. about 20 years ago. Ever since he's been in the United States, as a matter of fact... for as long as he has lived, he as been an incredibly hard worker, a devoted man of Christ, and the most caring individual possible.  On August 26th, he was provided with the opportunity to the path of legal immigration. He had been approved, with a waiver, to come to Mexico for his scheduled immigration interview. At the interview is when things took a turn for the worst... He was punished for his illegal entry with a permanent bar from entering the United States. This is a punishment that could not have been more harsh and undeserving. He has been indefinitely separated from his family and his business that he has owned for 10+ years. This has created the most extreme hardship for my family and the employees that he has led for years.  My father has done nothing but good in his life for his family, friends, and the restaurant. He has never been in any trouble, not even a traffic ticket, he has paid his taxes in this country, and done everything that an American citizen should do although he's not. He has sacrificed so much in order to give our family, including my mother and 17 year old brother the best life possible. He has raised us to be grateful, humble, and a Christian family. For anyone that knows my father will always say the same thing which is that he is the most positive, humble, caring, and kind person. My brother now has to grow up without the loving support that my father provides, and my mother has to spend double the time at the restaurant to make up for my father not being able to be there which has put my mom's health in jeopardy. There is nothing bad that you could say about a man who has an extraordinarily strong faith in Christ, who puts his family before himself, and is selfless in an opportunity to help others no matter the expense. My father exemplifies every trait of a person who belongs in this country.  He owns and operates The Hut Restaurant in Somerville, TN which is a landmark restaurant in that area. He has been the backbone of the restaurant which employs more than 11 employees. This has left my mother with the responsibility to completely run the restaurant with all that it entails which has been the most physically and mentally demanding action possible. We have all, as a family, pulled together to try to keep the restaurant running as it was while my father was there which has proven to be difficult for everyone. The customers, employees, and citizens of Fayette county have known Javi (his nickname) for years and know that this is something that needs to be fixed.  This is an opportunity to take a step towards proper immigration reform. Signing this petition can help fix this tragedy that we have been going through. This is an unjust situation that my father has to endure and we ask, as a family, that you help take action in bringing him back home to his family and his business that he owns. Please take a few minutes out of your day to sign now and pass this on wherever you can.  - The Loving Family of Francisco Javier Adin
