Help Wendy Stay in the US! 

Wendy was forced to leave Honduras in 2018 after surviving many years of domestic violence. She also suffered a politically motivated attack just before escaping the country. Afraid that she would be killed, she fled to the U.S. in search of safety. Immigration officials detained her while she was pregnant at the Eloy Detention Center and she managed to be released on a bond last year. 

In spite of Wendy's fear of returning to Honduras, the immigration judge recently denied her asylum claim. The judge's decision reflects the racism of our legal system, in which few Central American asylum seekers are able to win their cases in front of the judges. Wendy is now faced with a choice: appeal the decision or accept a deportation back to Honduras, where she could be killed. 

Wendy has the chance to appeal the denial - and stay in the U.S. - but only if she can pay the attorney's fees for the appeal. Will you help support Wendy in fighting her case? If Wendy can raise $2,000, she will be able to continue her appeal.

Ayudale a Wendy Para Quedarse en Los Estados Unidos! 

Wendy tuvo que salir de Honduras en 2018 después de sobrevivir muchos años de violencia domestica. También sufrió un ataque por motivos politicos justo antes de escaparse del país. Salió para los EEUU porque temía que la fueran a matar. Oficiales de migración la detuvieron en Eloy Detention Center y logró salir bajo fianza el año pasado. 

A pesar de su miedo de regresar a Honduras, el juez de migración la negó en su caso de asilo recientemente. La decisión del juez refleja el racismo del sistema legal en que pocas personas centroamericanas pueden ganar sus casos frente los jueces. Ahora Wendy se enfrenta con dos opciones: o apelar la decisión o aceptar una deportación a Honduras, donde la podrían matar.

Wendy tiene la oportunidad para apelar la decisión y quedarse en los EEUU pero solamente si puede pagarle a la abogada por la apelación. ¿Puede ayudarle a Wendy a pelear su caso? Si recauda $2,000 podrá seguir con su apelación.

You all are amazing!! $2000 raised already! This money will be held for Wendy until it is time to pay her lawyer for the appeal. I changed the GoFundMe goal to $2200 because Wendy let us know that she needs some help buying a crib and stroller for baby Joshua - when she went back to Texas she had to leave these items behind in Tucson. Her crib and stroller left here will be donated to another family seeking asylum, and if we raise the last $200 we will send it to her to help with these purchases. Thank you so much for your generosity!! Hey
