Helping Jorge

Jorge and his wife have five children, own their home in Dallas and have been married for over 20 years. While driving to work at 6am Jorge was pulled over by the cops and interrogated about his citizenship. When he couldn't show proof of citizenship, Jorge was taken into custody by ICE and is currently awaiting trial. 

Jorge and his wife have been upstanding members of this community for years. They're extremely involved in their church, Saint Pius X. Their oldest daughter Vanessa is finishing her senior year and plans to attend college next year to study architecture. Outside of schoolwork, Vanessa works at Subway and babysits regularly to help support her family. Their youngest child, Jorge Jr is waking up in the middle of night screaming for his "Papa."  

Erin, Lindsey and I are raising money to pay for the legal expenses for this sweet family. We are deeply saddened by this story and hope you'll feel moved to help us! Any amount helps- please contribute and help reunite this amazing family.
