Fighting Immigration Detention

My name is Keila DoSouto. I am posting this fundraising campaign on behalf of my best friend Yara Teixeira Mendonca to ask for your urgent contribution to help pay for the legal services needed to get her released from detention and apply for legal status. Yara is being detained at an Immigration Detention Facility 900 miles away from Boston. Yara’s family has been fighting for their immigration status in the U.S. since 2013. Yara came to the U.S. as a child. She went to Public Schools in Boston and Holyoke Community College. If we can provide any additional information please do not hesitate to contact Yara’s Parents at 617-329-5656.
