Free Karol Posadas

Karol Posadas is a Selena tribute artist, who has been helping in keeping her image, music and likeness alive, as well as a singer in her own right. 

On Saturday 11/2/19 while returning from a tour in Texas,  she was detained by immigration at Harlingen airport. Karol is a DACA recipient, she is an outstanding person, with no criminal record, who was brought to this country by her family at a young age, to escape the dangers and threats of her home country Guatemala. 

She has been kept at an overcrowded facility in El Valle, and forced to sleep on the floor, denied access to basic personal care products, and denied medical attention for her heart condition, that jeopardizes her health and for which she needs treatment. 

We are running against time. Please help us cover the legal fees and expenses necessary to have her released (more details below). Please help us free Karol Posadas.

We are working class people, with no influence or money, so for society our voices do not matter, and the human rights violations that she has been subjected to will go unheard. Help us change that! 




Karol Posadas es una artista que le hace tributo a Selena, ayudando a mantener su música, imagen, y carácter vivo, así como también una cantante en su propio derecho. 

El sábado 11/2/19, mientras regresaba de una gira en Texas, Karol fue detenida por inmigración en el aeropuerto de Harlingen. Karol es una recibidora de DACA, es una persona extraordinaria, sin récord criminal, quien fue traida a este país por su familia de muy joven, para escapar los peligros y amenazas de su natal Guatemala. 

Ella está siendo mantenida en una facilidad de detención sobre populada, forzada a dormir sobrepapeles en el piso, sin acceso a productos básicos de higiene personal, y le han negado atención médica para su condición del corazón, para la cual necesita tratamiento. 

Estamos corriendo contra el tiempo. Por favor ayúdanos a cubrir las expensas legales y los gastos necesarios para que sea liberada (más detalles al pie de la pagina) Ayúdanosa liberar a Karol Posadas. 

Somos gente de clase trabajadora, sin influencia o dinero, por lo tanto para la sociedad, nuestras voces parecen no importar; y las violaciones de los derechos humanos a las que Karol ha sido sujeta caerán en oídos sordos. Ayúdanos a cambiar eso! 


Who am I?

I’m Rodolfo Setien, a long time family friend, that’s working closely with her family and friends to help resolve this situation as quickly as possible, and expedite her release.

How will the funds be used?

The funds will be used to cover legal fees, including but not limited to attorney fees, immigration  filing fees, to cover money spent on provisions like clothes and such that she needed to buy at the detention facility (she was not allowed to receive any items from outside), phone cards she used to communicate with her family and friends, travel expenses to get back to California, and medical treatment such as a specialist for her heart condition and therapy (she was denied access to adoctor while detained)

How will the funds reach Karol?

The funds will be withdrawn by myself (Rodolfo) and then transferred directly to Karol.
