Legal expenses for Hillside student

A student at Hillside High School faces deportation and needs help with legal expenses as she seeks asylum. She came to the United States as an unaccompanied minor at the age of 15 after fleeing violence in Honduras. Over the past year and a half, she's been in and out of court trying to get the legal paperwork needed to stay in the U.S.  However, her case was mishandled by a law firm that accepted almost $7,000 from her family and gave her bad legal advice. In April, she was notified that she will be deported in August. The student is excelling at Hillside, and faces extreme danger if she's forced to return to Honduras, where she received death threats after surviving a violent assault. Please help us raise money for her asylum case.

 Ella llego sola  a los Estados Unidos cuando tenia 15 años despues de huir de la violencia de Honduras.  Desde entonces, ha asistido a corte tratando de obtener el permiso para permanecer en el pais.  Sin embargo, su caso fue llevado con negligencia por una firma de abogados que solicito casi 7.000 dólares de su familia y la aconsejomuy mal legalmente.

En abril, se le notifico que sera deportada en agosto. Es una excelente estudiante en Hillside y corre muchos riesgos si regresa a Honduras, donde recibió amenazas de muerte después de sobrevivir un violento asalto.
