Website Yay!

May 17, 2010

So we have been talking about a website for a long time so that people could be updated on the situation.  I kept thinking this will be over soon, so what's the point?  Well, now Pedro has been detained for 8 months.  In those 8 months, we have been through alot.  For me, it has been hard to be a single mom with a 3 year old and 3 dogs. Managing without my husband physically but supporting him emotionally through phonecalls everyday.  For Pedro, his freedom has been stolen from him.  Everyday he makes the decision, "Do I stay in this hellhole and sacrifice my freedom for my wife and son for a chance to stay in the US or do I sign the deportation papers and live freely in another country but, therefore sacrificing 10 years of living in the US for me, my wife, and son?"  This has been torturous for him.   I have been very proud that he has stuck it out this long.  There are very few that willingly stay in immigration detention to fight their case.  Welcome to!!!!
