On August 15,2017, as I arrived home from work, I was taken into custody by ICE and held at Krome Detention Center .They kept me for almost four months at four differents detentions center; West Tennessee Detention Center, (Memphis Tennesee ) , Pine Prairie Correctional Facillity ( Louisiana) , and Alexandria Detention Center ( Louisiana ).
I I have lived in the USA for the last 20 years . I have been a law abiding, hard working , tax paying member of society. I got married 2 years ago, granted my I-130 (marriage petition) and i was on track to get my green card and become a US citizen. As most of you know when Trump was elected , the immigration laws changed dramatically and quickly . As a result , my status as a resident alien was challenged and because of inadequate legal representation i was sent back to my home country.

My life is in America , I identify as an American , I don't know Colombia anymore i havent been here in the past 20 years and the transition back into my old homeland has been very difficult. I am scared, I am depressed, I am at loss.......I feel like I am stuck in a nightmare with not ending .
I l am begging for your help . My only hope of returning back to the USA is by challenging the deportation order from Colombia since I have my l-130 approved already. I have an excellent attorney in Miami who is willing to take my case, her fees and the cost of the whole consular proccess are $ 12.000.oo

My word is my honor, please help me get back to my life in the USA , I will keep track of all the donations and pay you back in time.
