To Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, John Morton; and Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano:
We, the undersigned, write to request that you take immediate action to stop the deportation of Yanelli Hernadez Serrano (A# 205-012-525).
Yanelli came to the United States when she was only 13 years old. Since that age, she has largely been independent and has had to work in order to sustain herself. Yanelli is currently facing deportation because she showed a police officer her consulate I.D. card as a form of identification, as she lacked a driver's license. While in detention, Yanelli lost hope and attempted to take her life twice. She needs to be released immediately so she can seek the help she needs.
On January 25, Yanelli will appear before an immigration judge who will decide if she can remain in the United States. Yanelli has not been to Mexico in 10 years and knows no one there. While in jail, Yanelli has continued to battle with depression and is currently receiving anti-depressants after her two suicide attempts. Yanelli considers Ohio her home and should be released so she can return to her community.
Despite the many obstacles she has faced, Yanelli still has the dream of becoming a veterinarian or work with children in some type of social service. Before being detained, Yanelli worked for many years at an aircraft assembling plant in Cincinnati, OH. Yanelli is a great person who deserves to stay in the only country she knows.
Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and President Obama have both stated that deporting undocumented youth brought to the U.S. as children is not a priority. As such, Yanelli should be immediately released and granted favorable discretion.
We, the undersigned, urge you to stop the deportation of Yanelli Hernadez Serrano.
