SUPPORT FOR ROSA— MOM #18

Immigrant Families Together  is a movement to help families separated by ICE. With grassroots effort and community donations, we have successfully bonded out Yeni Gonzalez and she's held her kids again ( https://nyti.ms/2lRD7jy). We have been able to do the same for several other families - you can read more about us and our success stories here: https://immigrantfamiliestogether.com/press. However, there  is unfortunately a long line of families waiting desperately to be together again. 

Rosa’s is the 18th family we are helping She is currently detained at an ICE facility. She has three children. Rosa CAN be released and we're determined to help her, working in conjunction with her attorney, to be released and reunited.

Any funds raised beyond the goal will be used to reunite other families.


WHO WE ARE

Immigrant Families Together is a network of Americans committed to rapid response aid of families separated by ICE. We have mobilized to help families currently detained through the following immediate actions:

1. Raising of bond funds through coordinated crowdfunding and individual giving in order to post bond for families separated from their children at the US/Mexico Border. 

2. Paying bonds and providing or coordinating pro bono legal representation to fulfill legal responsibilities while awaiting trial so that they may be with their children. 

3. Arranging safe transportation from state of detention to the city to which they are relocating. 

4. When needed, finding long-term housing in the destination city while they await trial. 

5. Connecting parents in cities with resources in order to sustain them during the process of being unified with their children. 

6. Working with local organizations and government to expedite the process of achieving full custody of their children while they await trial.  

7. We are creating a toolkit to allow other concerned citizens to replicate our model in order to help bring parents back to their children across the country as quickly as possible.

8. Providing sustaining funds for the family while they await their trial and the completion of the process, in accordance with federal poverty guidelines, as these women can’t legally pursue work for at least 5 months.



WHERE WE ARE FROM

Across the United States


HOW THE FUNDS WILL BE USED

We will be paying Rosa’s expenses related to her release, transport from the state where she is detained, and paying for her accommodations, food, cell phone, and other expenses, as well as providing her with support to attend appointments. 



HOW WE ARE RELATED TO THE BENEFICIARY

We are not related to Rosa or her attorney by blood. We are a community of concerned parents and citizens who don't support the current separation policy and want to do our part to help Rosa.


HOW WILL WE BE HANDLING THE FUNDS

We will withdraw all donated funds to Julie, the leader/organizer/founder of Immigrant Families Together. They will then be transferred to her attorney or  Rosa. Expenses to be paid include: Expenses related to release, transportation from the detention facility to her final destination, lodging, food, local transportation, cell-phone, and other expenses Inetide may incur as part of her release and reunification, including but not limited to costs of preparing for her court appearances (copies of documents, etc).




GRUPO DE AYUDA PARA ROSA -Familia #18

El grupo de Familias Inmigrantes Unidas (www. immigrantfamiliestogether.com) es un movimiento que ayuda a reunir a los padres que han sido separados de sus hijos bajo la política de cero tolerancia.  Con ayuda de la comunidad y sus donaciones, hemos podido ayudar a pagar la fianza de Yeni González  y gracias a esto Yeni ha vuelto a ver y abrazar a sus hijos. (  https://nyti.ms/2IRD7jy). 

 

Rosa es de la 18.ª familia a la cual estamos ayudando. Actualmente se encuentra detenida en una instalación de ICE. María tiene 3 hijos. Rosa PUEDE ser liberada y estamos determinados a trabajar con su abogado para que sea liberada y reunida con sus hijos.


QUIENES SOMOS

El grupo de Familias Inmigrantes Unidas es un grupo de ciudadanos determinados a reunir en una manera rápida a aquellas familias que fueron separadas por la política de cero tolerancia.  Nos hemos movilizado para ayudar a los padres de las siguientes maneras:

1. Reunimos fondos con donaciones para pagar sus fianzas.

2. Pagamos fianza, y proveemos asesoría legal para cumplir con todos los requisitos legales necesarios mientras esperan ser reunidos con su hijos.

3. Organizamos el transporte desde el centro de detención al estado donde se encuentran sus hijos.

4. Cuando es necesario, buscamos alojamiento para los padres mientras esperan su juicio legal.

5. Conectamos a los padres con recursos locales que puedan ayudar a sustentarlos mientras esperan ser reunidos con sus hijos.

6. Trabajamos con organizaciones locales y gubernamentales que puedan ayudar a expeditar el proceso de custodia mientras esperan su juicio.

7. En este momento estamos realizando un modelo de trabajo para que otros ciudadanos puedan replicarlo y ayudar a otros padres ser reunidos con sus hijos. 


DE DONDE SOMOS

Nos encontramos en varios estados de los Estados Unidos.


COMO SERAN USADOS LOS FONDOS REUNIDOS.

Se utilizarán para pagar todos los gastos necesarios tales como la fianza, el transporte, alojamiento, comida, teléfono celular y otros gastos básicos.  Además de ayudar económicamentecuando sea reunida con sus hijos.


CUAL ES NUESTRA RELACION CON LA BENEFICIADA

No tenemos relación de sangre con Rosa o con su abogado.  Somos una comunidad de padres preocupados que no apoyamos la póliza de separar familias al cruzar la frontera.


COMO MANEJAREMOS LOS FONDOS RECAUDADOS

Los fondos serán retirados por la fundadora de Familias Inmigrantes Reunidas Julie Schwietert Collazo.  Los fondos serán transferidos al abogado de Rosa.  Los gastos por pagar incluyen: gastos relacionados a su liberación, transporte de Eloy Arizona, alojamiento, alimento, transporte local, celular y otros gastos necesarios para la reunión de Rosa con sus hijos.  Además de pagar gastos legales para la preparación de su caso ante el juez.
