Please Help Save My Big Brother

Hello friends and family. On 4.11.18 at approximately 6 a.m, my brother Marco was taken from our home by immigration officers.

You see, 20 years ago our family and I traveled from Mexico (legally) to the U.S.A for a summer vacation and ended up falling in love with America. Instead of going back to Mexico, my parents decided we would stay and work towards the American dream. For over 20 years now we’ve managed to live here with the hopes that one day they would grant us residency. But it’s not that easy. Not only does it cost a lot of money, but you have to qualify in order to gain permission to stay, sooo yeah... its been tough. We’ve been forced to work the jobs that no one wants to work, and up until recently, we couldn’t legally get behind the wheel, not mention a whole lot of other problems we ran into. For those who has never met Marco Lozano (my brother) before, the most important thing you should know is that he is not a criminal. Marco is a joyful individual who cares for others more than himself. He’s funny, charismatic, and loves to play Fortnite. But on top of all that.. he’s my big brother. I’ve spent all my life side by side with him and now... he’s facing possible deportation. His crime was that he was brought from Mexico to the U.S as a boy and he never returned, but I’ll speak for myself... we didn’t have a choice... we were kids! We didn’t realize how hard life would be until we grew up and had to get a job, we couldn’t go to school because financial aid wasn’t available for “illegals” and on top of all that we can’t travel to see our loved ones so when my grandma died we were forced to mourn her death 1000 miles away. So yeah!! It’s been really hard. But we’ve always managed to come together and be there for one another. Because family is the most important thing in life and right now it feels like we’ve had a huge chunk of it ripped from our hearts. Marco runs the risk of being sent back to Mexico, but he hasn’t been to Mexico since we arrived at the U.S over 20 years ago.. he doesn’t know Mexico anymore... he doesn’t have family there or a home to call his own... he has nothing. If they deport my brother he will be forced to start from step one in a completely new world. So this is where I ask of you, please help save my brother's life. We have a fighting chance to keep Marco with us by showing proof he entered the U.S.A lawfully but’s it’s going to cost our family a lot of money that we don’t have and if you could help with anything, we would forever appreciate your help. I love my brother with all my heart and my family does too so we won’t stop fighting to have him back in our arms. With your help, we can beat this crooked system and bring my brother home. Please help us in this time of need... our family would truly appreciate it.

Thank you all for taking your time to read this. We understand that money is an issue for some so if you can, please share this post. Every ounce of effort will help bring Marco home. Proceeds will fund my brother's lawyer fees, bond fees, and criminal fees. Thank you.

Kindest regards,
Marcos little brother
