Jordon Dyrdahl-Roberts DID NOT start this GoFundMe.  I started it for him.  

He quit his job so he would not have to help ICE hunt down & deport undocumented workers.  He is taking a stand against the Trump Administration's policies at great risk. He is a hero.  And he deserves support while he looks for another job.  Please help.  He tells the story best in his own words.  You can read his Twitter thread from Feb. 7, 2018 below:

"I put in my two weeks notice.
I work at Montana Department of Labor.
There were going to be ICE subpoenas for information that would end up being used to hunt down & deport undocumented workers.  It would have been my responsibility to prepare the information and hand them off to ICE.
I refuse to aid in the breaking up of families. I refuse to just “follow orders.”
This isn’t an easy decision as it puts me in a delicate financial position.  I’ve got a toddler, an underemployed wife in grad school & two cats.
There’s about $900 in my checking account.
People have asked why am I doing this if I have a child. I’m doing this because I have a child. I want to be able to look my child in eye.
So many people are waiting on the 2018 elections, but many people being targeted by this administration don’t have that long.
I’m drawing my line in the sand here. Cooperation with this regime is not acceptable.
Seriously, fuck ICE."

Jordon finds himself in a similar position as I did a couple of months ago when so many people stepped up to help me and called me a hero.  Jordon is a hero. 

Thank you Jordon.  This means a lot to me and our country!

Jordon @dyrbert is on his way to El Paso to talk to workers in the child detention centers to see if anyone is having a crisis of conscious like he did when he quit his job rather than process ICE Subpoenas that he knew would result in splitting up families! Jordon saw this coming a million miles away and refused to "just take orders." As a supporter, you probably did too. Thank you for keeping Jordon in your thoughts as he takes this trip and tells the stories that MUST be told. This is Jordon's new site for those stories:

I’ve been doing interviews with and writing articles for various news outlets, trying to bring as much attention as possible to these issues.

The only reason I have had time to do any of that is because of all of you. I’ve been posting articles and interviews as they come out on my public Facebook page

Thank you all for this opportunity to try to do some good.

Things have been really hectic lately, just a different sort of hectic than I was expecting when I quit instead of helping ICE. That is thanks to all of you. Your support means I don’t have to scramble to find the next job that will give me a paycheck, and I can instead look for a career that will help me do some good in the world. This has been an amazing experience. All I can hope is that I’m able to keep moving forward and try to do as much good as I can, while I can.

I sincerely thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
