On November 30, 2021, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) stalked and handcuffed Adriana after she dropped off her daughter at kindergarten at Lord Tweedsmuir Elementary School in New Westminster. After a long struggle and community action, Alberto and Adriana were relieved to hear that the Canada Border Services Agency would not attempt to remove them until there is a decision on their applications for permanent residence on humanitarian and compassionate grounds. However, for nine months, they have lived with restrictive CBSA-imposed conditions, including not being allowed to work. If they violate their conditions, CBSA could arrest them again and place them in immigration detention. In the spirit of solidarity, not charity, support Adriana and Alberto with meeting their basic needs of rent, food, transportation and medicine, while they wait for a decision on their applications.
