Thanks to all of you who have signed and together we CAN keep Mario Perez Home! (below is his story and more action items you can do)



Mario is among the thousands of undocumented students who could benefit from the passage of the DREAM Act.  But three months after the DREAM Act failed in the U.S. Senate, an immigration judge in Houston 
threatened Mario’s American dream. Mario has no criminal record but came to the attention of ICE due to traffic violations. On March 9, 2011, the immigration judge ordered him removed from the United States. He could be deported as early as April 2011.
Mario came to this country at an early age and was raised in the Houston area. America is all he has ever known. This is Mario’s home.  He did not understand that he was undocumented until he was applying to college and learned he did not have a social security card. Like many DREAMers, his persistence paid off and he was able to pursue a college education. He is currently a senior at Stephen F. Austin State University majoring in mathematics and statistics. As a proud member of the legendary Alpha Phi Alpha fraternityMario has contributed more than 1,400 volunteer hours to the community, and he planned to pursue a career in engineering.
Unfortunately, unless Mario’s deportation is stopped, his hard work and dedication could have been in vain. Sign this petition to ask the Department of Homeland Security and the President Obama to immediately halt Mario’s deportation.
