Justice4Cynthia! No more family separation
July 20, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Cynthia Vanessa Iraheta Lopez is a mother of 2 children, a 3-year old and a 9-year old, ICE wants to separate them by deporting Cynthia! Originally from Honduras, she’s lived in the U.S. for years. She’s a part of the Seattle area community. Unfortunately, to the racist, xenophobic Trump administration and the U.S. government, she’s “illegal” and must be deported.
For years Cynthia has reported to DHS/ICE as instructed including on May 11, 2017, where she was told to report to BI Incorporated, a private contractor for DHS, for possible removal to Honduras. Due to community support and pressure, her removal was delayed while ICE reviewed 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. For this next check-in ICE has threaten Cynthia with being the last one, they want to separate her from her children!
We call on the community to stand against family separation because it is cruel and unusual punishment. She has called on the community to support her on the date she’s to report to the Department of Homeland Security and possibly be deported from the U.S.
When: Thursday, June 21 at 12:30pm
Where: Department of Homeland Security, 12500 Tukwila International Blvd, Tukwila, WA 98168
