Jose Robles to Meet with ICE July 17th
#Don’t Deport Jose Robles-- No Deporten a Jose Robles
Jose Robles, a longtime Washington resident, was wrongfully denied his ability to pursue the U-Visa process by Lakewood police, after falling victim to a violent crime. This consequently left Jose on a path to deportation. Without the U-Certification, Jose was forced to seek Sanctuary for nearly a year, rather than be torn apart from his family. With community support, Jose was able to have the Pierce County Prosecutor's Office sign the U-certification so he could move forward with his U-Visa application.
Now, Jose and his legal team will have to meet with ICE on Wednesday, July 17th, to file a stay of removal to keep him in the country and stop his deportation while he pursues a legal pathway through his pending U-visa. We know that Jose faces a gruesome political climate. This is why we are coming together across Washington State and beyond to DEMAND THAT ICE NOT DETAIN OR DEPORT JOSE WHILE HIS U-VISA IS PENDING AND GRANT HIM A STAY OF REMOVAL SO HE CAN RETURN HOME TO HIS FAMILY.
