Help Stop DREAM Student Deportation


Stop Deportation of Dream Student Herta Llusho
Message from DREAMActivist .com

On July 1st DHS deferred Walter Lara's deportation,
on July 24th DHS deferred Taha's deportation. Sadly, the ICE director in Javier Garcia's (Texas DREAMee) case denied Javier's request for more time in the US and he was deported last Thursday. Now, on August 19th (in SIX DAYS), Herta is set to be deported to Albania. Herta has lived in Michigan for most of her teen years, this is the country that she calls home and has done everything in to make sure she succeeds, lets do our part to make sure her dream (and ours) becomes a reality!

Please take action, share this with others and encourage them to take action!!!

Call in Script:

I am calling on behalf of Herta Llusho (A#96-139-441), an undocumented student who is facing deportation back to Albania on August 19th. Herta has lived in Detroit since she was 11, she went to Pierce Middle School and Grosse Pointe South High School. Herta excelled in high school, graduating with a 4.05GPA and she has continued to excel after high school. She has been very active in our community volunteering at homeless shelters, summer day camps, and tutoring programs, in addition to a lot of other things with her church.

The reason I am calling is to ask that you do something to stop Herta from being deported in less than 7 days. Please introduce a private bill for her in addition to contacting DHS and asking that they defer her deportation. Herta is an asset to our state and to our country and we should be fighting to keep immigrants like her here, not deporting them to countries they know little about.

Thanks.

America creats more problems trying to help others than any other country in the world.Third world countries would benefit from the education that DREAM students are capable of offering if they would only ban together. This is like Obama choosing the United States over Kenya. The Kenyans are in dire need of his education and intellegence. The Kenyans could have been elevated to greatness through Obama's leadership unlike the USA. Wonderful DREAMs.
