Protect Cynthia from Deportation

Protect Cynthia from Deportation

We the undersigned call on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) to stop the deportation of Cynthia Vanessa Iraheta López and allow her to remain in the U.S. with her 3-year and 9-year old daughters.

Why is this important?

For years Cynthia has reported to DHS as instructed including on May 11, 2017, where she was told to report to BI Incorporated, a private contractor for DHS, for possible removal Honduras. Due to community support and pressure the removal has been delayed while ICE reviews the stay of deportation presented by her lawyer. Unfortunately, in an act reminiscent of a police state, she has been forced to wear an ankle bracelet so the government can monitor her whereabouts at all times. We call on the community to stand against family separation because it is cruel and unusual punishment.

Stop her deportation!
Keep Families together!
No human being is illegal!

Seattle, WA, United States

Reasons for signing

  • Families should not be separated. We all want a better life for our children.
  • Migration is a human right
  • We must resist ICE's efforts to break apart families. Stop the deportation of Cynthia!

Despite overwhelming community support, both through petition and in-person rallies, Cynthia received deportation orders. She fears for her future and that of her children. The months of threats and deportation orders show that even mothers who are raising their children, who pose no flight risk, are treated like 'threats' in our unjust immigration system. Deport ICE, not us!
