Time Warner Cable Turned Lorena in For Deportation!!

On July 30, Lorena walked into the Alamance County Time Warner Cable office to apply for cable service. As soon as Lorena paid, a police officer came from the back room and arrested her. She was taken to Alamance County Jail where she was placed in deportation proceedings.

Lorena has immigration court on December 13 and could be given a final order of deportation. Tell ICE to stop Lorena's deportation. She deserves to be with her 7 year old daughter. Sign the petition and make a phone call!

The Petition

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

I am calling to urge you to stop the deportation of Lorena Yanez-Mata (A# 205-214-279). According to the Morton Memo, she is a low-priority case and shouldn’t be deported. Lorena has a 7 year old U.S. citizen daughter who needs her mom home.

On July 30, Lorena walked into the Alamance County Time Warner Cable office to apply for cable service. The representative who assisted her asked her to complete some paperwork and to present a form of identification. The representative went to her office for several minutes telling Lorena she was making copies of the paperwork. Finally, the representative came out and returned the I.D. and asked Lorena to pay for the deposit and first month of services. As soon as Lorena paid, a police officer came from the back room and arrested her. She was taken to Alamance County Jail and was then transferred to ICE custody and placed in deportation proceedings. She is scheduled to appear in court on December 13 and could be given a final order of deportation.

Is it Time Warner Cable’s policy to work with Alamance County law enforcement to entrap undocumented people so they can be arrested and deported? Recent findings by the Department of Justice show that Sheriff Terry Johnson and his department have engaged in egregious discriminatory practices against Latinos living in Alamance County. Why is Lorena facing deportation and separation from her 7 year old daughter when all she wanted was cable service?

Lorena came to the United States in 2004 and has been living in North Carolina for the past 8 years. She is a single mother of a 7 year old U.S. citizen child. If Lorena is deported, her daughter will be separated from the only person who provides her with emotional and financial support. Most importantly, her daughter will be left without a mother to care for her.

According to the Morton Memo, Lorena is a low-priority case and should be granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion. Lorena has been living in the U.S. for 8 years, has a 7 year old U.S. citizen daughter, and has no criminal record. Lorena only went to the Time Warner Cable’s store to get cable service for her family. Instead, a police officer came out from the office and arrested her. Why is this company working with the police to target undocumented immigrants? Lorena needs to stay in the U.S. to continue to provide for her daughter.

I urge you to stop the deportation of Lorena Yanez-Mata (A# 205-214-279) from North Carolina.
