27315244_15172420360_r.jpegMy name is Sandra Gonzaga Perez, I am the wife of Luis Candela. On Wednesday January 17, 2018 around 4pm.  Luis was torn away from our family.  

Luis is a loving father of tree daughters, a good husband, friend, community activist and productive member of our society.  On Wednesday, he was followed to work and taken by ICE.

Luis and I have been helping  community members who are or have been victims of ICE. The manager of  Oak Grove Mobile Home Park  in New Brighton, MN threatened some residents with calling ICE or the police.  Her abuse of power has had destroyed and  separated families. Luis and our family are active members of the organization Sembrando Poder.  We are fighting for justice and dignity for all. 

For those of you who know Luis, you know that he is an activist at heart. He cares for and fights for the rights of our communities! 
In the past few years he's been involved with (Mirac) Minnesota Immigrant Rights Action Committee working to stop deportations. 

We need Luis out of detention and back home with his family. We need Luis back home where he belongs.  
Please help us.  Anything is appreciated.

He is being held at Sherburne County Jail, Elk River, MN.  Luis will have his immigration bond hearing in the next few weeks. Our family is devastated and desperate.  We need help raising 7 to 10K to pay for his bond.  We need YOUR help!

Mi nombre es Sandra Gonzaga Perez, soy la esposa de Luis Candela.  El miércoles 17 de enero del 2018 alrededor de las 4pm., Luis fue arrebatado de nuestra familia por agentes de ICE. 

Luis es un padre amoroso de 3 niñas, un buen esposo, amigo, activista comunitario y un miembro productivo de nuestra sociedad. El miércoles pasado agentes de ICE lo siguieron a su trabajo y se lo llevaron. 

Luis y yo hemos estado ayudando a miembros de nuestra comunidad que han sido víctimas de ICE. La administradora del Parque de Casas Mobiles en New Brighton, MN amenazo algunos residentes con llamar a ICE y a la policía, alrededor de 15 personas han sido detenidas por agentes de inmigración. El abuso de poder que ha mostrado la administradora de las casas mobiles  ha destruido y separado familias. Luis y nuestra familia somos miembros activos de la organización Sembrando Poder. Luchando por la justicia y dignidad para todos.

Para los que conocemos a Luis, sabemos que es un activista de corazón. A el le importa luchar por los derechos de nuestras comunidades.  Por los últimos años el ha estado envuelto en MIRAC "Comité de Acción de los Derechos de los Inmigrantes MN" .

Necesitamos a Luis fuera de las garras  de ICE y que regrese a casa con su familia. Necesitamos a Luis en casa con sus hijas! Necesitamos a Luis de regreso en el hogar que el pertenece. Por favor necesitamos tu ayuda. Cualquier cantidad es apreciada. 

Esta detenido en el cárcel del condado de Sherbune en Elk River, MN. Luis va a tener su audiencia de fianza en las próximas semanas. Nuestra familia esta devastada y desesperada. 
Necesitamos ayuda para  recaudar entre 7 mil y 10 mil dólares para pagar su fianza. 

Por favor Necesitamos tu AYUDA!
