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!

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.

THANK YOU! This comment from Kimberly Zewdu justifies Jordon's actions, in my opinion: "As a wife of a non-criminal immigrant who was detained for 5 months and was just released under ICE supervision, I am so grateful to hear people that our taking a stand against the injustice our and many thousand other families are experiencing in the xenophobic actions of the administration. I wish we could give but we are in rough place due to our battle with ICE. But we stand in support and solidarity!!!!"
