Call for Urgent Release of Sergio Ledezma, His Sick Wife and Children Need Him

Sergio should not be kept in Eloy any longer. Forcing Adela to be the sole income earner for the family puts not only her own life but her family’s on the line as well. Having her husband in detention is putting Adela at risk for heart and lung failure or death. This is a crisis. They need their father back home. We are asking people to please sign the petition to support the Ladezma family and tell the Enrique Lucero, ICE Director of Phoenix Arizona to release Sergio. He needs humanitarian parole now, his family depends upon it.

Why is this important?

Sergio Ledezma Caballero migrated to the US in 2003 to offer a better life for his family. After being racially profiled and stopped by the police in 2015, the better life Sergio was building for his family came to an abrupt halt. Sergio was separated from his family and sent to Eloy Detention Center, where he has been held for over a year. His wife, Adela, is extremely sick with a pulmonary embolism, which is causing blood clots, and his two sons need him desperately. We are asking for Sergio to be released based on humanitarian parole.

Not knowing how to deal with Sergio’s case, Adela tried many things, she asked help from an attorney and was defrauded they gave her wrong information and asked her to sign fake documents at her home. It’s been one thing after another with this family, and now Adela’s illness is becoming more severe.

Sergio and German are their sons. The oldest son Sergio plays football and is a sophomore in high school. He says it’s not fair to see such a hard working parent like his father be taken away; he can’t understand how these injustices happen. German, the youngest, says he misses playing basketball with his dad and wants his family reunited. Throughout all of this, the boys have felt alone not knowing how to best help their mother and are having to figure out how to take on parental roles at such a young age.

The two boys really need a father right now, during their teenage years is one of the most important developmental years of a boy’s life. Although Adela is doing everything she can, she is suffering from deep vein thrombosis and was told by doctors to be in bed rest. Unfortunately she cannot rest as she is the sole provider for her family at this time and finds her health suffering and can not prioritize her needs. Knowing the stress of not having their father and the toll that it has taking on the family has made Adela become very stressed, which affects her health.
Sergio should not be kept in Eloy any longer. Forcing Adela to be the sole income earner for the family puts not only her own life but her family’s on the line as well. Having her husband in detention is putting Adela at risk for heart and lung failure or death. This is a crisis. They need their father back home.

Reasons for signing

  • It is inhumane to keep a Father in prison from his wife and sons without a trial indefinitely. It is barbaric and shameful that greed is the cause of these injustices.
  • THis is inhumane, cruel, pointless and expensive for American taxpayers. Why not figure out some way to get him home, working and help him get citizenship.
  • The deportation system is broken!
