Release Georgia community organizer Adrian Saucedo-Luviano, allowing him to pay bond, instead of detaining him and turning him over to immigration enforcement for deportation
//
Libera al organizador de Georgia, Adrian Saucedo-Luviano, permitiéndole pagar una fianza, en lugar de detenerlo y entregarlo a agentes de inmigración para su deportación.

Why is this important?

Adrian Sauced-Luviano is a community organizer with the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights (GLAHR) and a migrant worker who has lived in the U.S. for over 10 years. He has participated in the fight for immigrant rights in Georgia and representing migrant workers nationally.

Adrian was pulled over by a county Sheriff, and charged with nothing more than Driving without a License. In Georgia, people call that charge "Driving while brown" because it has been a way for Sheriffs to profile Latinxs attempting to find undocumented immigrants. In Georgia, Driving without a license is considered a felony, and is part of the state laws targeting undocumented immigrants. The Sheriff in Cullen Talton has refused to release immigrants even after they are eligible for bond, and insists on turning them over to ICE.

Adrian Sauced-Luviano es un organizador con Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights (GLAHR) y un trabajador migrante que ha vivido en los EEUU más de 10 años. Ha participado en la lucha por los derechos de los inmigrantes en Georgia y representando trabajadores migrantes a nivel nacional.

Adrián fue detenido por un Sheriff del condado, y acusado únicamente de conducir sin licencia. En Georgia, la gente dice que el cargo es "Conducir mientras ser una persona de color" porque ha sido una forma que los Sheriffs discriminan contra Latinxs intentando encontrar inmigrantes indocumentados. En Georgia, conducir sin licencia se considera un delito grave, y es parte de las leyes estatales dirigidas a los inmigrantes indocumentados. El Sheriff en Cullen Talton se ha negado a liberar a los inmigrantes incluso después de ser elegibles para la fianza, e insiste en entregarlos a ICE.
