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 allowing her to attend her court date in Jefferson County without fear of deportation and be with her children. She is accessing her due process rights and the outcome of the case could open new avenues of Immigration relief to her. In addition, Ingrid's two citizen children need her here with them, especially her one year old Anibal who is undergoing medical treatment right now.
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 has torticollis, a condition which can be treated when the child is young. He sees a physical therapist and needs supervision at home to complete his treatments. If he isn't treated properly now, he'll likely need surgery as an adult. 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 found a new attorney who is now trying to reopen her criminal case. That attorney asked for a stay of removal in order for Ingrid to pursue her day in court without fear of deportation, that stay was denied. Now Ingrid is facing final orders of deportation and it's possible Immigration will detain her at her Jefferson County court date.
