#BringThemHome: Cecilia Cortez Wants to Raise Her Children Without the Fear of Violence!

Cecilia came to the United States in 2001 to reunite her family and to escape the violence that plagued her home town. Her family grew and her dreams to one day own her own home and run her own business were part of her plan to provide stability to her family.

In 2011, Cecilia found out that her mother was extremely ill and she was forced to return to Mexico with her three children. She did her best to support her mother and raise her children, but the violence that plagues her home town has forced her family to leave their home only when necessary. Cecilia wants to reunite her family once again. She wants to come home.Please make a call and sign the petition.

Kevin Appleby at the US Conference of Catholic Bishops: (202) 541-3260

Sample Script:
"Hi. I'm calling to ask that you intervene in the case of Cecilia Cortez-Hernandez (A# 205-956-086) and urge ICE to release her to the care of her husband and three children. Despite having no criminal history, having lived in the U.S. for over 10 years, and has two U.S. citizen children ages 3 & 6, her request for Prosecutorial Discretion was just denied and she could be deported at any moment. Are you willing to contact ICE right now to stop her deportation? Thank you."

The Petition

To President Obama and Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson:

Cecilia Cortez is a devoted mother, wife, and friend, and there is no way for her to come home to raise her kids in a place without the fear of constant violence. Cecilia lived in the United States from 2001 until 2011, when she found out that her mother was gravely ill with heart complications. Despite having two U.S. citizen children, there is no way for Cecilia to come back. If it weren’t for our broken immigration system, Cecilia, Jonathan, and Alexa would be home, in Jacksonville with the rest of their family.

Cecilia came to the United States in order to reunite her 3 year old son with his father and to escape the deteriorating situation in Michoacan. Their family lived in relative safety as one unit, and soon their family expanded at the births of Alexa and Jonathan. Cecilia dreamed of owning her own home and running her own business. However, in 2011, when she found out that her mother was extremely ill, she took her three children with her to Mexico.

Cecilia did the best she could to help her mother and support her children, but they had a hard time adjusting to their new surroundings. Three years later, the violence in Michoacan is so bad that the Director and an Assistant Director of the Municipal Police in the town where Cecilia lives were found murdered in December, 2013. For this reason, Cecilia and her children rarely leave their house. And yet, there is no way to come home to the United States.

We are asking that you allow for Cecilia Cortez and her children to come home to the United States. Cecilia has no other way of coming home. They’ve already tried everything else. We feel that people who have lived in the.S. for a long time should be allowed to reunite with their families. A lot of these people were forced to leave the U.S. either because they were deported, had family deported, or were fleeing policies like SB1070. If your administration is an advocate for immigrants, then people like Cecilia should be allowed to come home.

Cecilia Cortéz es una esposa, amiga, y madre abnegada, y no hay manera de que vuelva a casa para criar a sus hijos en un lugar sin temor a la violencia constante. Cecilia vivió en los Estados Unidos desde 2001 hasta 2011, cuando se enteró de que su madre estaba gravemente enferma con complicaciones cardiacas . A pesar de tener dos hijos que son ciudadanos estadounidenses, no hay manera para que Cecilia regrese a EEUU. Si no fuera por nuestro sistema roto de inmigración , Cecilia , Jonathan , y Alexa estaría ya en casa , en Jacksonville con el resto de su familia.

Cecilia llegó a Estados Unidos con el fin de reunir a su hijo de 3 años con su padre y para escapar de la peligrosa situación en Michoacán . Su familia vivía con bastante seguridad, como una unidad, y pronto su familia se expandió con los nacimientos de Alexa y Jonathan . Cecilia soñaba con ser dueña de su propia casa y tener su propio negocio . Sin embargo, en 2011 , cuando se enteró de que su madre estaba muy enferma , ella se vio obligada a llevarse a sus tres hijos con ella a Méjico.

Cecilia hizo lo mejor que pudo para ayudar a su madre y apoyar a sus hijos, pero tenían muchas dificultades para adaptarse a su nuevo entorno. Tres años después, la violencia en Michoacán es tan mala que el Director y un Subdirector de la Policía Municipal en la ciudad donde vive Cecilia fueron asesinados en diciembre de 2013 . Por esta razón, Cecilia y sus hijos rara vez salen de su casa. Y, sin embargo , no hay manera de volver a casa a los Estados Unidos .

Estamos pidiendo que se permite para Cecilia Cortéz y sus hijos regresen a casa a los Estados Unidos. Cecilia no tiene otra manera de volver a casa. Ya han intentado todo lo demás. Creemos que las personas que han vivido en Estados Unidos desde hace mucho tiempo se les debe permitir reunirse con sus familias. Muchas de estas personas se vieron obligados a salir de los EEUU, ya sea porque fueron deportados, porque deportaron su familia, o huían políticas como la SB1070 . Si su administración es un defensor de los inmigrantes, entonces gente como Cecilia se les debe permitir volver a casa.
