On September 24, 2018, I was fired by the Trump administration.

I was fired in retaliation for confronting DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at dinner  in June. I told Nielsen about what I had seen in a Nogales, AZ ICE facility in 2014: children without parents. Children given inedible food. Children kept in cages.

I was investigated for speaking up that night, but an internal inquiry cleared me of misconduct. A Hatch Act complaint was filed, but the office of special counsel cleared me of any violations. My performance reviews remain as outstanding as they were when I started my job two years ago.

Despite all that, on September 18, I was told that Assistant Attorney General of Antitrust Makan Delrahim chose not to renew my term and my last day would be October 2. I prepared to continue working and close my active cases over the next week, to make the transition as smooth as possible. 

When I got to work on September 24, I was met at the door by security and forced to pack up my office. I was told, again, that this was merely a non-renewal of my term.

I don’t regret standing up for immigrants unable to advocate for themselves. My only concern is that the Assistant Attorney General’s decision to force me out of a job has left me without insurance to cover my high medical costs, and without an income to cover the legal fees needed to fight back. I will use the money raised to cover my doctor appointments, rent, and other incidental costs (including possible a possible retainer) over the next few months.

Please give whatever you can. If I am able to secure a new job sooner than expected, I will donate any excess money to the MDC DSA migrant justice legal fund.
