Keep North Carolina Business Owner with His Family / Mantenga a Oscar con su familia

1. Take a stand to protect Oscar, his constituent, from deportation by introducing a private bill to the US House of Representatives granting him residency
2. Make a public statement addressed to ICE's Atlanta District director demanding that ICE cancel his deportation order
//
Le pedimos que:
1. Tome una posición y luche para proteger a Oscar, su constituyente, de que lo deporten por medio de un proyecto de ley privado a la cámara de representantes de los Estados Unidos, otorgándole la residencia.
2. Haga una declaración publica dirigida al director del distrito de Atlanta de ICE demandando que ICE cancele su orden de deportación.

Oscar is a father of four from El Salvador whose business employs US citizens and immigrants. He has paid business taxes in North Carolina for six years, and has repaired dozens of homes throughout the state. Separating him from his family would cause them irreparable harm, and would deprive our state of an immigrant job creator. Since 2005, Oscar has spent over $14,000 paying immigration attorneys to find a way to gain lawful permanent status in the US. His attorney's most recent petitions for a stay of removal have been blocked by ICE - his last hope is for Rep. Ted Budd, as his congressional representative, to intervene on his behalf and prevent the forced separation of his family.

Oscar es un padre de cuatro hijos. Vino de El Salvador y es dueño de un negocio, el cual emplea a ciudadanos estadounidenses y también inmigrantes. Ha pagado impuestos de negocio en Carolina del Norte por seis años y ha reparado docenas de casas por todo el estado. Separándolo de su familia les causaría daños irreparables y también privaría a nuestro estado de un inmigrante creador de trabajos. Desde 2005 Oscar ha gastado mas de $14,000 en pagos a abogados de inmigración buscando la forma de conseguir estatus legal permanente en los Estados Unidos. Los esfuerzos mas recientes de su abogado, pidiéndole a ICE una suspensión a su expulsión, han sido bloqueados por ICE--su ultima esperanza es que el Representante Ted Budd como su representante en el congreso intervenga por el y prevenga la separación forzada de su familia.
