We are #justiceforalex/#justiciaporalex and we have come together to raise money to help both Alex Ulloa Martinez and his family here in the US. In 2017, Alex was attending Huntington High School in Suffolk County, NY when he became a victim of racial profiling, prejudice, and ultimately, deportation. Prior to his deportation, Alex had hopes of furthering his education and pursuing a better life through asylum in the United States. If you would like to read more about Alex, Huntington High School, and their story, please click the following link: New York Times Article about Alex Ulloa Martinez 

Since learning more about the circumstances regarding Alex’s experiences, we have reached out to Alex’s family to learn more about the actions they have needed to take to protect their child. For the past two years, Alex’s family had racked up approximately $25,000 in costs relating, but not limited to: Legal fees, transportation costs, loss of wages, providing Alex with money while he was in immigration detention, and Alex’s cost of living in Honduras since his deportation.  

This family is very hard working and have done all they can to try to protect their son.

At this point, we believe it is vital to provide this family with some financial support to help alleviate the burden that has been placed on them.

Please consider donating to this page to support Alex and his family.

If you are unable to donate at this time but still would like to show support for immigrants and asylum-seekers in the Huntington school community, please consider attending the Board of Education meeting at Jack Abrams at 7:30 PM on January 7, 2019 to voice your concerns.

Somos #JusticeForAlex / #JusticiaParaAlex y nos hemos reunido para recaudar fondos para ayudar a Alex Ulloa Martinez y su familia aquí en los Estados Unidos. En el 2017, Alex asistía a Huntington High School en el condado de Suffolk, Nueva York, cuando se convirtió en víctima de perfiles raciales, prejuicios y, en última instancia, deportación. Antes de su deportación, Alex tenía la esperanza de continuar su educación y buscar una vida mejor a través del asilo en los Estados Unidos.

Desde que aprendimos más sobre las circunstancias relacionadas con las experiencias de Alex, hemos contactado a la familia de Alex para aprenda más sobre las acciones que deben tomar para proteger a su hijo. Durante los últimos dos años, la familia de Alex acumuló aproximadamente $ 25,000 en costos relacionados, pero no limitados a: gastos legales, costos de transporte, pérdida de salarios, proporcionarle dinero a Alex mientras estaba en detención de inmigrantes y el costo de vida de Alex en Honduras Desde su deportación.

Esta familia es muy trabajadora y ha hecho todo lo posible para tratar de proteger a su hijo.

En este punto, creemos que es vital proporcionar a esta familia algún apoyo financiero para ayudar a aliviar la carga que se les ha impuesto.

Por favor considere donar a esta página para apoyar a Alex y su familia.

Si no puede hacer una donación en este momento pero aún desea mostrar su apoyo a los inmigrantes y solicitantes de asilo en la comunidad escolar de Huntington, considere asistir a la reunión de la Junta de Educación en Jack Abrams a las 7:30 PM el 7 de enero de 2019 para expresar sus preocupaciones
