Stripped naked, tossed into solitary confinement with only a blanket.
That’s how the detention center responded to Yanelli after she almost took her own life. And now, only months later, she is being shipped off away from the only family and friends who might be able to help her get better. Yanelli’s case is urgent, we only have until Tuesday to stop her deportation. Yanelli came to the United States all by herself when she was 13, this means that, if deported, she won’t have anyone to support her.
We need your help to get Yanelli out, she needs to be at home with her family receiving treatment. Things are not looking good for her, ICE has already moved her to a different location. . . the last stop for detainees before they are deported. We pretty much have 1 day to stop Yanelli’s deportation.
Hello I am calling to ask that Yanelli Hernadez (A# 205 012 525) be allowed to stay in the U.S. where she needs treatment. Yanelli is suffering from depression; she has attempted to take her own life twice and should not be deported. This is wrong.
In order to reach our goal of 2,000 calls we need to work together. Can you help us by changing your facebook profile picture to the image here? That way everyone will know exactly what they need to do.
As a show of solidarity, in addition to calls, several states have planned vigils or phone-banks in support of Yanelli. She isn’t the only undocumented person suffering and so we need to be there for each other. If you can, after you make a call please take a quick picture and send it to us so that we can remind each other how much support we really have out there.
All over the country people are taking action for Yanelli, if you can attend one of the local events hosted in the following cities: Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, Chicago, New York City, Detroit, Tallahassee, Raleigh, Harrisonburg, San Francisco, Birmingham, Columbus and Cincinnati. We only have until Tuesday to save Yanelli’s life and we aren‘t going to go down without a fight! Will you help us reach our goal of 2,000 calls for Yanelli to be set free?
After you call please let us know how it went so we can keep track of how many calls we get. You can report back on this page, that way maybe your note will encourage someone else to take action as well.
We’ll keep you updated throughout the day.
P.S. If you are on twitter can you help us send this message? Whn Joaquin Luna cmtd suicide we all expressed regret we hdn’t helped him. Is Yanelli next? bit.ly/wAfWey @NAMICommunicate @dreamact
