Sanctuary in the NY Times + petition delivery this Monday
Monday, January 26, 2015 by Esther Meroño0 Responses

Big news! The New York Times and Newsweek just covered the story of Arturo fighting his deportation in Sanctuary in Denver.1

With his the story in the spotlight, we’re applying MONDAY to stop his deportation and keep his family together. We’ll be delivering his petition with the application – can you help us get to 5,000 signers? We need to show the immigration officers reviewing his case that supporters of Sanctuary across the country stand with this courageous husband and father.

Before Monday, sign the petition to help stop Arturo’s deportation.

Arturo doesn’t have 3-6 months to wait until President Obama’s executive action accepts applications – even though he may qualify as an undocumented father of a U.S. citizen child. If we don't stop Arturo's deportation now, he won't be able to fulfill his dream of seeing both his daughters off to college one day. 

Our coalition in Denver welcomed Arturo into sanctuary because he is our neighbor, and as people of faith, we do not accept a broken system that tears apart loving families in our community. Please join us as we put our faith in action to push for immediate relief for Arturo and his family.

Add your name to help stop Arturo’s deportation before the delivery Monday.

Thank you for supporting Arturo and the Sanctuary movement.

In Solidarity,

Jennifer Piper
Metro Denver Sanctuary Coalition

My favorite part of President Obama's address this week raised up the beauty and power of the human spirit—exactly what you'll find in these three stories of faith and unity. 

We are thrilled to announce that after 58 days in Sanctuary at West Kensington Ministry, Angela's final deportation order was stopped!

While people like Kaylee and her church are working to keep their neighbors safe, the new House of Representatives passed a bill this week that aims to defund programs that provide temporary deportation relief to children and parents of U.S. citizens that are part of President Obama's executive action.

The year’s just started and the world already feels like it’s falling apart—but don't lose hope. Folks just like you are putting it back together with faith and compassion.

An interfaith group of over 200 clergy, council members, leaders, and community members gathered on the steps of NY City Hall to call for real reforms ...

We have very exciting news – local and national leaders are joining the fight to keep Angela home in Philadelphia with her family!
