SUPPORT FOR DELMI — MOM #8//  GRUPO DE AYUDA PARA DELMI -MAMA #8

Immigrant Families Together is a movement to help reunite detained parents with their children. With grassroots effort and community donations, we have successfully bonded out Yeni Gonzalez and she's held her kids again (    https://nyti.ms/2lRD7jy)-- there is a long line of moms waiting to do the same. 

Delmi is the 8th mother we are helping, and is currently detained at an ICE facility in Arizona. Her child has been transferred to another state. Delmi CAN be reunited with her child and we're determined to help her, working in conjunction with her attorney, to reunite them.

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 unification of families separated by the 'zero tolerance' policy. We have mobilized to help parents currently detained through the following immediate actions:

1. Raising of bond funds through coordinated crowdfunding and individual giving in order to post bond for parents 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 where children are currently in foster care. 

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.


WHERE WE ARE FROM
Across the United States

HOW THE FUNDS WILL BE USED
We will be paying Delmi’s expenses related to her release transport from Arizona to the state where her child is, and paying for her accommodations, food, cell phone, and other expenses, as well as providing her with support to attend appointments and reunite with her child.


HOW WE ARE RELATED TO THE BENEFICIARY
We are not related to Delmi 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 reunify Delmi with her child.


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 Delmi. Expenses to be paid include: Expenses related to release, transportation from Eloy, Arizona, lodging, food, local transportation, cell-phone, and other expenses Delmi may incur as part of her reunification, including but not limited to costs of preparing for her court appearances (copies of documents, etc).



GRUPO DE AYUDA PARA DELMI -MAMA #8

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 politica de cero toleranci .  Con ayuda de la comunidad y sus donaciones, hemos podido ayudar a pagar la fianza de Yeni Gonzalez y gracias a esto Yeni a vuelto a ver y abrazar a sus hijos de nuevo ( https://nyti.ms/2IRD7jy).  Desafortunadamente hay una larga fila de padres en su misma situacion esperando reunirse con sus hijos.  Delmi es nuestra 8va mama que estamos tratando de ayudar.  En este momento Delmi se encuentra detenida en un centro de detencion inmigratoria en Eloy Arizona.  Su fianza es de $30,000 dlls.  Sus hijos han sido transferidos a otro estado.  

Delmi PUEDE ser reunida con sus hijos si todos ayudamos, trabajando en conjunto con su abogado.


QUIENES SOMOS

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

 Reuniendo fondos con donaciones para pagar sus fianzas.

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

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

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

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

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

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 utilizaran para pagar todos los gastos necesarios para pagar la fianza, el transporte, alojamiento, comida, telefono cellular y otros gastos basicos.  Ademas de ayudar economicamente cuando sea reunida con sus hijos.


CUAL ES NUESTRA RELACION CON LA BENEFICIADA

Dear Generous Donors,

With your help, we were able to raise funds for Delmi’s bond. Her bond, set at $30,000, is the highest among all the bonds we have paid.

On Monday, July 24th, Julie went to the ICE office in New York to post her bond. Unfortunately, ICE has the authority to revoke a bond offer at any time, and that’s what we found out had happed to Delmi. ICE had revoked her bond offer and had put a removal order for deportation.

We are working with lawyers on the ground to appeal her removal order and get her bond offer back. She can’t be released while the removal order is still in effect, but she can’t be deported before then, either.

Her lawyer told Delmi that people had raised the funds for her bond. She was grateful and tearful to hear that there were people who cared about her.

We won’t stop fighting for Delmi. Delmi’s child has been released from detention to a family member. And if she gets released, our network is ready to transport her and reunite them without delay.

Thank you for fighting with us,

Immigrant Families Together
