Dream move! – S. Campos
As a dreamer and as part of our family, Steve needs our help. Please read the following message from Steve Li’s Teacher and MAKE THE CALLS to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to defer Steve’s deportation. We ask that you call at least 3 times–it takes a few minutes and it means Steve’s future. Steve is from San Francisco–let’s show him that Californians have his back. Don’t hesitate to leave a message, and please forward this email widely. Thank you.
As most of you know, we’ve been working to free my former student Steve Li from ICE custody for the last 3 weeks. Steve has now been incarcerated for 56 days.I just received news that ICE is planning to deport Steve this coming Monday. He has run out of time.
Yesterday, the SF Board ofSupervisors, SF School Board, and the AFT 2121 joined the City College of SF Board of Trustees in passing resolutions denouncing Steve’s deportation and urging Congress to pass the DREAM Act. We have pressed Senators Feinstein and Boxer to introduce a private bill but have been rebuffed.
THERE IS NO MORE TIME LEFT FOR STEVE. WE MUST ACT NOW!
We are planning to hold an all day rally/protest in front of Senator Boxer’s offices (1700 Montgomery St) THIS FRIDAY from 10 am – 5 pm. We will hold a press conference at 12 pm.
I know that many of you are busy and will not be able to make it. However, you can still help us by calling:
ICE Director, John Morton:
“Hi I’m calling to urge ICE director, John Morton, to defer the deportation of Shing Ma “Steve” Li. He would qualify for the DREAM Act and is an asset to our community. Thank you.”
Sen Boxer’s office:
“Hi I’m calling to urge Sen. Boxer to sponsor a private bill for Shing Ma “Steve” Li, who faces deportation any day now. He would qualify for the DREAM Act and is an asset to our community. I ask that Senator Boxer intervene today”
Please tell everyone you know to make this call and keep Steve home.
Thanks for all your help and support.
