Save the Cardona/Dunoyer family from deportation

Save the Cardona/Dunoyer family from deportation

To pass the House Bill HR 1490 in order to save the Cardona/Dunoyer family from deportation and allow them to remain in the U.S. The bill was introduced to Congress specifically for this family and remains pending as of today.

Why is this important?

For 17 years the Cardona/Dunoyer family have lived in the United States after fleeing from their home country due to threats from Columbian guerilla groups. As of March 2017, Consuelo Cardona, Roberto Dunoyer, along with their sons Pablo (age 19), and Camilo (age 16) became the beneficiaries of a private immigration bill, HR 1490. It remains pending as of today. The family has no criminal record. Camilo Dunoyer recently graduated high school and is attending community college in San Diego. Pablo Dunoyer is scheduled to graduate college with his Associate's Degree and has been accepted to the University of San Diego to continue his education. If they are deported they will lose everything that they have worked hard for and their lives will be at risk.

Reasons for signing

  • I think that for this man to "escape" to the United States with the qualifications he has and work from 08:00 to 23:00 as a cleaner / caretaker must have been humiliating enough but he did it to protect himself and his family and to put a roof over their heads. By right of birth alone someone else who understands nothing of the fear and conditions this family has had to live in gets to decide that they are not as deserving of help and recognision as others. Shame on this person.
  • I just watched this family on Netflix. What was done to them was terrible, they should have been given asylum when they first came here.
  • Feel bad for people that aren’t fortunate
