Aura and Allan were released at the Arizona border on December 31st, after three days in detention, following a difficult month crossing Mexico from their hometown in Guatemala. They left their home as a last resort to escape threats by gangs in their neighborhood.  ICE  ordered them to attend "check-ins" and fitted Aura with an electronic monitoring device; their status is still up in the air. 

Aura and Allan have ended up in Winston-Salem, and we are fundraising to help them build a new life here, where they don't yet have any connections. We're raising money to help them rent and furnish an apartment and pay for their initial legal expenses in seeking a path to legal status.

We may not be close to the border, but we can stand against the Trump Administration's policies by supporting people like Aura and Allan. Please donate today. 

Each donation up to $100 will be matched by the Fund for Democratic Communities.

EN ESPAÑOL 
Aura y Allan fueron liberados en la frontera de Arizona el 31 de diciembre, después de tres días de detención, luego de un mes difícil de cruzar México desde su ciudad natal en Guatemala. Salieron de su hogar como último recurso para escapar de las amenazas de las pandillas en su vecindario. ICE les ordenó que asistieran a "check-ins" y a Aura se les instaló un grillete; su estatus legal todavía está en el aire.

Aura y Allan han terminado en Winston-Salem, y estamos recaudando fondos para ayudarlos a construir una nueva vida aquí, donde todavía no tienen ninguna conexión. Estamos recaudando dinero para ayudarlos a alquilar y amueblar un apartamento y pagar sus gastos legales iniciales en la búsqueda de un camino hacia el estado legal.

Puede que no estemos cerca de la frontera, pero podemos enfrentarnos a las políticas de la Administración Trump al apoyar a personas como Aura y Allan. Por favor dona hoy.
