Update: To my family, friends and community. First of all, I would like to thank all of you for your unconditional support, as you all know by now I was released from by the Immigration Detention center at Tacoma. Thanks to all of your calls, e-mails and fundraising efforts, I am now free to serve my community once again. As I continue to fight for my case, I will work to help my community. I realize due to my situation that there are more brothers and sisters facing the same situation. The president promised that ICE would only go after those who have committed serious, heinous crimes. This does not mean arresting people only because they are not citizens. Everyday people are detained for minor offenses. And sent to ICE, where they are then sent to the for-profit detention center like the one in Tacoma, which is run by the GEO group using our public tax dollars. I invite all of you to join us in the fight by attending events, sending e-mails, making calls and donating if you can. Again I would like to say thank you for you kindness, my family and friends fundraising efforts have paid off. While the bond has been paid, there is a loan and legal fees that still need to be paid off. Any help that you can provide will be much appreciated. Thank you for your time. In Solidarity, Victor Albarran
