Free Baido: Legal fees and family support

On January 6th 2020, Baido attended a court date in in New Hampshire for driving without a license.  ICE officers, in civilian clothes, were hanging out in the lobby of the courthouse all morning, and they were later waiting in the parking lot in an unmarked car. When Baido left the courthouse, they immediately confronted him and made a warrantless arrest. 

Baido is a the loving father of a four year old.  He is now detained in Strafford County Department of Corrections in Dover, NH. We need to hire a lawyer and provide support for the family.

Baido lives in Massachusetts, so he could not apply for a driver's license because the state currently does not allow undocumented immigrants to apply for licenses. But as we know, driving is a necessity for people who need to work and take care of their families. A police officer pulled him over after running his plates and seeing that he had expired insurance. Racial profiling like this and minor traffic violations can rapidly escalate into detention, deportation, and family separation.

Please donate to help us bond him out of detention and reunite him with his partner and his daughter. The money will go towards hiring a lawyer and support for the family.
