Release Eliseo Jurado, Colorado father, back to his family

Release Eliseo Jurado, Colorado father, back to his family

Immediately release Eliseo back to his family and drop deportation against him.

Why is this important?

*** Sigue en espanol***
On January 11, 2018, ICE detained the husband of Sanctuary leader Ingrid Encalada Latorre.

Eliseo Jurado has lived half his life in the US. His father is a US citizen and his mother a permanent resident. His son, Anibal who is two years old, and his step-son Bryant, who is nine, are both US citizens.

Eliseo is the breadwinner for his family and has supported Ingrid as she fought her deportation. He owns his own framing company and has literally helped build a new Denver.

Nothing new has happened in Eliseo’s life. There was no reason for ICE to target him now.
******************************
Hoy, el ICE detuvo al esposo de la líder del Santuario, Ingrid Encalada Latorre.

Eliseo Jurado ha vivido la mitad de su vida en los Estados Unidos. Su padre es ciudadano estadounidense y su madre es residente permanente. Su hijo, Anibal, que tiene dos años, y su hijastro Bryant, que tiene nueve años, son ambos ciudadanos estadounidenses.

Eliseo es el sostén de su familia y ha apoyado a Ingrid mientras luchaba contra su deportación. Es dueño de su propia empresa de enmarcado y, literalmente, ha ayudado a construir un nuevo Denver.

Nada nuevo ha sucedido en la vida de Eliseo. No había ninguna razón para que ICE lo atacara ahora.


Reasons for signing

  • He is a productive member of our society and his family deserves to have him remain here. Our nation would be damaged more by deporting him than allowing him to stay!
  • Eliseo Jurado is a father and supporter of his family. He belongs with his family. His father is a citizen and his mother is a permanent resident.
  • Even more than keeping families together, gaining from the contributions of immigrants and providing a haven for those fleeing violence I want the USA to be a place where there remain to speak up "when they come for me."
