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.
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.Here are some things you can do to help:
