Sign this petition to demand that ICE grant asylum to Carmela and her four children. Carmela and her family were issued a family order of deportation after their asylum petition was denied. They came to the U.S. fleeing the violence of the U.S.-backed drug wars in Mexico, which claimed the lives of three of their closest family members and led to physical assault of Carmela and her oldest daughter. Should Carmela and her children be deported, their lives will be in imminent danger.
Carmela and her children have taken Sanctuary in Church of the Advocate to protest their deportation orders and the injustices endured by immigrants everyday.
