Our mother, Athena was unlawfully detained by ICE on 6/6/17 after re-entering the country from a trip abroad. She is currently detained in Houston and we have no access to her until we get her legal representation. She is unjustly facing deportation.
As you know, Athena is one of the most decent and generous human beings, mother and friend to us all. We need to stop the government from doing this and get her out of Houston and out of ICE's hands so she can continue to live her life and continue the fight at her home in Seattle.
We (Andrew and Charlie) are requesting any assistance that you can help us out with, small or large to help with getting her legal help. We are so appreciative of any help you can support us with.
Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions. We know that for those of you who haven't known that this comes as a shock, so we're happy to answer any questions. Please understand that your help is greatly appreciated as you can imagine that time is of the essence.
Andrew and Charlie
