My name is Charles Ladege, Francis' younger brother. As many of you may know or knew Francis are probably wondering where he's been the past 2 years. Francis got into some legal issues with the US Immigration Customs and Enforcement. Due to Francis not being a citizen of the US but a permit resident, he is eligible for deportation if convicted of a crime. He was convicted a crime in 2015 after marijuana was found in his car. He was placed on probation and about a year later ICE (Immigration Customs Enforcement) picked him up from a monthly report to his probation officer.
Long story short, he's been with ICE for the past 2 years. ICE has finally decided to deport Francis back to South Sudan within a month. Francis and I were raised in the US from the ages of 7 and 8. I know he will do great and be fine back home, but the adjusting from life here and a third world country is terrifying. So my goal is to support Francis in the best way I can. Im's asking for any that would like to help or support him in helping him transition smoothly through this time. There's little time before his flight will be ready in Chicago, IL. Support doesn't always entail money, you can also keep intouch with him through social media example facebook.com/francis.ladege. I have not told many people about Francis' sistuation seeing as it is personal but as he is about to leave, I want to atleast suprise him and let him know PEOPLE DO CARE!!
