Keep Ingrid Home - Grant her a stay, let her attend court & stay with her children

Grant Ingrid Encalada Latorre (A# 200-820-242) a stay of deportation. Ingrid's two citizen children need her here with them and she's spent half her life here in the US

Why is this important?

Ingrid Encalada Latorre came from Peru and made Colorado her home in 2000. She has lived almost half of her 33 years here in the US. She has two citizen children, Bryant who is 8 years old and Anibal who is a year old. Anibal had torticollis, a condition he overcame with the constant care of his mother. Bryant needs his mother so he continues doing well in school and in life.

Ingrid's immigration problems began in 2010. She worked for many years at a nursing home to support herself and her son. Like millions of people who need to support their families, she used papers she had purchased to be able to work. This caused the IRS to contact the person to whom the papers belonged and that person filed a police report.

On April 22, 2010 the police picked Ingrid up at her nursing home job. She agreed to a felony plea and completed 4 1/2 years of probation and paid back $11,500 of back taxes. She didn't understand that the felony plea, which allowed her to serve probation and pay the fines rather than serve jail time, would prevent her from being able to win her immigration case.

Ingrid is facing final orders of deportation on September 15. We have asked Governor Hickenlooper to grant her a pardon. If he does so, we can file to reopen Ingrid's immigration case and she'll need an additional stay of deportation.

Ask Immigration to let Ingrid stay while she fights her case and cares for her sons. Support Ingrid remaining with her family today!


Reasons for signing

  • I signed because in Ingrid's case, she got terrible legal advice and deportation and separation from her children is too high a burden for this offense. She's a kitten no woman, raising two wonderful little boys, both American citizens, who deserve to have their mother's care.
  • Compassion for Ingrid and many more just like her is the only way to proceed. We are a nation of immigrants and need to open our hearts to these people.
  • As a retired teacher at a Title 1 school with many students that qualify for DACA; I have seen hard working families that are trying to give their children what all of us desire: food, shelter, and safety. These immigrants are full of potential. Imagine what could blossom if they were allowed out of the shadows and into full light.

The judge ruled that, because the law was not black and white in 2010, he could not reopen Ingrid's case. We are now asking Governor Hickenlooper to issue Ingrid a pardon so she can file to reopen her Immigration case.

*Sigue en espanol*
Dear supporter,
Ingrid’s lawyer has been ill and there was a mix up in communication between his office and Ingrid. Court *will* proceed tomorrow Monday October 23. We will meet at 7:00am in front of the Jefferson Country Courthouse 100 Jefferson County Pkwy, Golden, CO 80401. Please wear something yellow. Meet in front of the doors to courthouse, pray and then go in at 7:30am. You do not have to remain for the whole thing and should feel free to leave when you need to as we’re not sure how long court will take.
Thank you!

Apoyador a Ingrid,
El abogado de Ingrid ha sido enfermo y hubo mal comunicación entre su oficina e Ingrid. La corte *si se va hacer* mañana lunes 23 de octubre. Reuniremos a las 7 de la mañana enfrente de la corte del condado de Jefferson 100 Jefferson County Pkwy, Golden, CO 80401. Por favor visten de algo amarillo. Reuniremos enfrente de las puertas del edificio, oramos juntos y luego entramos a la corte a las 7:30am. No tienes que asistir a todo su corte y se debe sentir libre de irse cuando sea necesario como no sabemos cuánto tiempo tomara la corte.
Gracias!

Friend,

Thank you for signing Ingrid’s petition. Ingrid’s court is being rescheduled again. We will NOT be in front of the court Monday morning. We will be sharing a call-in day to ICE next week and sharing out the updated court date as soon as we get it.

The bright side is this gives us more time to collect more signatures. Please ask five friends to sign if you haven’t already! https://action.groundswell-mvmt.org/p/KeepIngridHome

Amig@,

Gracias por haber firmado la petición de Ingrid. Su corte está siendo pospuesta otra vez. NO estaremos enfrente del corte este lunes por la mañana. Compartiremos un día de acción de llamadas a ICE en semana que entra tanto como la fecha nueva de la corte.

El bueno de esto es que nos da más tiempo de colectar más firmas. Por favor pide a cinco amig@s que firman! https://action.groundswell-mvmt.org/p/KeepIngridHome

Sincerely
Jenn Piper
