Grant Stay of Deportation For Mother of Three & Community Leader Jeanette Vizguerra

Jeanette Vizguerra, a Colorado community leader and mother of three, is facing deportation. 

Jeanette has lived in Colorado for over 15 years, has 3 small children who are US citizens, started a small business with her husband who is a cancer survivor, and has given selflessly as a community activist. She worked for SEIU as a labor organizer and volunteered with her children’s schools, the Aurora Neighborhood Watch Program, and Rights for All People.

Jeanette has worked hard for her community in Colorado and has inspired many with her courage and passion.
Jeanette’s story exemplifies the brutality of our immigration system that is unjustly separating families, denying the opportunity to live a life with dignity, denying the opportunity be with their loved ones at their death. Although this immigration system has tried to destroy Jeanette’s dignity, Jeanette is still fighting to be with her children and she needs our support!!

Sample Script: "Hi I am calling to ask that ICE grant a stay of deportation on the case of Jeanette Vizguerra-Ramirez  (A#089-826-036) and close her case. Jeanette is the mother of 3 U.S citizen children, who need her home. According to the Morton Memo issued in 2011, Jeanette is not a priority for deportation and should have her case closed."

The Petition

To Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, John Morton, and Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano:

I am writing to ask for a stay of deportation for Jeanette Vizguerra (A#089-826-036). Jeanette is a Colorado community leader and mother of three. Even though her three U.S. citizen children will suffer emotionally and physically, and even though she is a low priority for deportation, Jeanette faces deportation.

Jeanette has lived in Colorado for over 15 years, has 3 small children who are US citizens, started a small business with her husband who is a cancer survivor, and has given selflessly as a community activist. She worked for SEIU as a labor organizer and volunteered with her children’s schools, the Aurora Neighborhood Watch Program, and Rights for All People. Jeanette has worked hard for her community in Colorado and has inspired many with her courage and passion.

Since 2009, Jeanette has been fighting her deportation case when she was pulled over by local police and arrested for driving without a license. In 2012, an immigration judge denied her prosecutorial discretion but Jeanette kept fighting to stay with her family and filed an appeal. While she waited for the decision on her appeal Jeanette’s mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Jeanette had not seen her mother for over 15 years and the thought of not being able to see her mother again pained Jeanette so much that she returned to Mexico on September 2012 to be with her mother. Jeanette’s mother died before Jeanette could speak with her for the last time.

After the burial of her mother, Jeanette attempted to find work in Mexico but was discriminated for her age, and was forced to pick through trash bins to find plastic bottles to recycle for money. Upon facing the crushing poverty in Mexico and seeing no future for her family in Mexico, Jeanette risked her life and attempted to cross the border to reunite with her children in Colorado. Jeanette was detained by Border Patrol and is now waiting deportation in El Paso, Texas detention center.

Jeanette’s story exemplifies the brutality of our immigration system that is unjustly separating families, denying the opportunity to live a life with dignity, denying the opportunity be with their loved ones at their death. According to the Morton Memo of 2011, Jeanette is a low priority for deportation and because of the significant suffering that her absence will cause for her children, I request that she be released to the custody of her family immediately.
