A single father needs your help to get out of detention, win his case against deportation, and take care of his young children living in the Portland metro area. He has been separated from his young kids, all of whom are under the age of 11, for over a year now. If he’s deported, his children are at risk not only of becoming orphans, but of being separated from each other as well.

This father’s case against deportation was recently reopened, so he will soon be expected to appear before an immigration judge in Tacoma, WA. We need your help to raise $10,000 to hire a fantastic immigration attorney for his removal defense.

Legal representation is the single most predictive factor in whether someone will win their case against deportation or not. Because immigration is civil—not criminal—court, however, the government does not provide legal counsel to those who cannot afford to hire their own. Without an attorney, this father would be forced to represent himself in court, and would ultimately be less likely to prevail against deportation.

All contributions to this campaign will go directly towards hiring an attorney to represent this father in removal proceedings and give him the best possible chance to get out of detention, win his case against deportation, and be reunited with his children. If he is released from detention, the father could go back to his well-paying job and take care of his family. According to all accounts, he is a loving and responsible father and needs to be with his children.

Pueblo Unido PDX has supported this family by connecting them to free food and clothing distributions, as well as arranging phone calls, videoconferences, and in-person visits between the father and his children. So far, YOUR donations to the Pueblo Unido Legal Defense Fund have covered exorbitant communication costs so these children can maintain regular contact with their only parent.

Now, we’re asking for your help to hire an immigration attorney and ultimately reunite this local family.

Un padre soltero necesita su ayuda para salir de detención, ganar el caso contra su deportación, y hacerse cargo de sus hijos pequeños viviendo en el área metro de Portland. El ha sido separado de sus hijos, todos quienes tienen menos de 11 años, por más de un año. Si el es deportado, sus hijos estarán en riesgo de no solo convertirse huérfanos, pero también de ser separados los unos de los otros.

El caso de este padre contra su deportación ha sido recientemente reabierto, así que pronto se esperara que él se presente ante un juez de inmigración en Tacoma, WA. Necesitamos su ayuda para recaudar $10,000 para contratar a un fantástico abogado de inmigración para su defensa.

La representación legal es el factor más predictivo en si alguien gana su caso contra deportación o no. Porque la inmigración es un caso de corte civil—no criminal-, el gobierno no provee asesoría legal a aquellos que no pueden pagarla. Sin un abogado, este padre sería obligado a representarse el mismo ante la corte, y sería ultimadamente menos probable que prevalezca contra su deportación.

Todas las contribuciones a esta campaña irán directamente hacia la contratación de un abogado que represente a este padre en procesos de expulsión, y le darán la mejor oportunidad para salir del centro de detención, ganar su caso contra deportación y ser reunido con sus hijos. Si él es liberado del centro de detención, podrá regresar a su trabajo bien-remunerado y hacerse cargo de su familia. Según todos los testimonios, él es un padre amoroso, responsable y necesita estar con sus hijos.

Pueblo Unido PDX ha apoyado a esta familia a través de estar conectandola con alimentación gratuita y distribución de ropa, al igual que estar planeando llamadas telefónicas, videoconferencias, y visitas en persona entre el padre y sus hijos. Hasta ahora, SUS donaciones al Fondo de Defensa Legal de Pueblo Unido han cubierto costos exorbitantes de comunicación para que estos niños puedan mantener contacto regular con su único padre.

Ahora estamos pidiendo su ayuda para poder contratar a un abogado de inmigración y finalmente reunir a esta familia local.

CAMPAIGN UPDATE: ATTORNEY HIRED, BOND OFFERED, FUNDRAISING GOAL INCREASED!!!

The original goal of this campaign was to raise $10,000 to pay the entire cost of legal representation for this single father’s deportation case, which could continue for several years. With your support, we have already reached TWO-THIRDS of that goal!

Your donations enabled us to pay an initial retainer fee to get a fantastic immigration attorney to take on the case. As a result of the attorney’s hard work, this single father was recently offered the opportunity to GET OUT OF DETENTION ON BOND!

Now we need YOUR support to raise an additional $5,000 to help cover the bond and finally reunite this single father with his young children, after more than a year of separation.

We are therefore raising the goal of this campaign to $15,000, and updating its purpose to include helping pay for the bond AND the remaining cost of legal representation for this single father.

Please consider donating to reunite this Portland metro family.

ACTUALIZACION DE LA CAMPANA: ABOGADO CONTRATADO, FIANZA OFRECIDA, AUMENTEMOS LA META

El objetivo original de esta campaña era recaudar $10,000 para pagar el costo de la representación legal para el caso de deportación de este padre soltero, que podría prolongarse varios años. Con su apoyo, ¡ya hemos alcanzado DOS TERCIOS del objetivo!

Sus donaciones nos permitieron pagar el costo inicial para que un fantástico abogado de inmigración tomará el caso. Como resultado del arduo trabajo del abogado, ¡a este padre soltero recientemente se le ofreció la oportunidad de SALIR DEL CENTRO DE DETENCIÓN CON FIANZA.

Ahora necesitamos SU APOYO para recaudar $5,000 adicionales para ayudar a cubrir la fianza y finalmente reunir a este padre soltero con sus hijos pequeños, después de más de un año de separación.

Por lo tanto, estamos aumentando la meta de esta campaña a $15,000 y actualizando el propósito de este campaña para incluir el pago de la fianza y el costo restante de la representación legal para este padre soltero.

Por favor considere donar para reunir a esta familia de Portland.
