Support Thomas Torres

$12,203 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 430 people in 18 days
Hello friends, my name is Lorena Rodriguez. Thomas Torres is a long time family friend whom I’ve been honored to know for the past four years here in Tucson, Arizona. He moved here from Mexico when he was young, along with his mother and two younger sisters to seek a better future and education. He’s been attending Desert View High School for the past four years, engaged in school and sports throughout the years. He’s also worked at restaurants bussing and cleaning tables, doing yard work and finding side jobs; no job is ever too small or big for him. Thomas Torres is scheduled to graduate May 22nd, 2019. 
Yesterday, Thomas was picked up by border portal and is currently being held in jail and facing the possibility of being separated from his family and friends and sent back to Mexico. I ask that you please consider a donation to help Thomas’ legal bills so that he can graduate and be reunited with his loved ones. With the immigration lawyer, it’s expected to cost around 10,000$ alone, and that does not consider any additional consultation fees.  Any support is greatly appreciated. The funds will be withdrawn by myself on behalf of Thomas’ family and sent directly to the lawyer. 
People like Thomas are needed in this country. He’s a hardworking young man and willing to better his future. We need support! Thank you.

Hola amigos, mi nombre es Lorena Rodriguez. Thomas Torres es un amigo de la familia desde hace mucho tiempo a quien he tenido el honor de conocer durante los últimos cuatro años aquí en Tucson, Arizona. Se mudó aquí desde México cuando era joven, junto con su madre y dos hermanas menores para buscar un mejor futuro y educación. Él ha asistido a la preparatoria Desert View durante los últimos cuatro años, participando en la escuela y los deportes a lo largo de los años. También trabajó en restaurantes, limpiando mesas, haciendo trabajos de jardinería y encontrando empleos secundarios; ningún trabajo es demasiado pequeño o grande para él. Thomas Torres está programado para graduarse el 22 de mayo de 2019.Ayer, Thomas fue recogido por el portal de la frontera y actualmente se encuentra recluido en la cárcel y se enfrenta a la posibilidad de ser separado de su familia y amigos y enviado de regreso a México. Le pido que considere una donación para ayudar a los proyectos legales de Thomas a fin de que pueda graduarse y reunirse con sus seres queridos. Con el abogado de inmigración, se espera que cueste alrededor de 10,000 $ solo, y eso no considera ninguna tarifa de consulta adicional. Cualquier apoyo es muy apreciado. Los fondos serán retirados por mí mismo en nombre de la familia de Thomas y enviados directamente al abogado.
Se necesita gente como Thomas en este país. Es un joven trabajador y está dispuesto a mejorar su futuro. ¡Necesitamos apoyo! Gracias.
