Please help Gonzalo stay in the US!

My friends, a dear friend of my family needs urgent help. One month ago Gonzalo was taken from his home in Volo, Illinois and put in jail because he is not yet a US citizen. Gonzalo has been in this country for 20 years, he has applied for citizenship. He works as an independent contractor, he has a wife and 5 children. Before the arrest the wife quit her job at a factory to help Gonzalo with his business.

This is the work of Trump's initiative to expel immigrants from our country, and the non-criminals are the easiest prey.

The court has said that Gonzalo needs to raise $25,000 by January 18th or be sent back to Mexico, leaving his wife and children behind which would devastate his family and completely ruin their lives. If you see fit, please donate...and/or repost this. Thank you & lots of love.
