Help get a family back together

My sister Sara and her husband Edgar have been married for 10 years. Edgar and Sara have two little boys named Armando (6 years old) and Joaquin (1-year-old). Edgar is on the second stage of becoming a legal resident of the United States of America. He was detained by immigration on October 24, 2017. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) was performing a raid and stopped him on his way to work. He is now being detained at the deportation facility in Florence, AZ.
The boys do not understand why their father is not home. Edgar is the main provider for the family. Everyone considers him to be a good husband, father and just a great person overall. He has always worked hard to provide for his family. Just last year they were finally able to buy a home for their family to live in, a place they could finally call their own.
But now that he’s been detained, my sister runs the risk of losing their house and their cars. Her paycheck is barely enough to pay for the babysitter that cares for their two boys while she’s at work. She needs money to help with the house payments, car payments, lawyer’s fees, utility bills, food, and other necessities. She also needs at least $ 15,000 to pay for his bond.
A couple of weeks ago they found out that they had lost a baby they were expecting, then the following week INS takes Edgar away. There is only so much pain and suffering a person should have to endure. They have already lost their unborn child. Please don’t let them lose everything else they have worked so hard to obtain in the last 10 years. Help us get him back. Even if it’s just a dollar, anything you can donate will be greatly appreciated as every little bit helps. Thank you for all your help. God Bless you!
