Two Bruce Monroe @ Park View Families Facing Deportation Proceedings — Assistance from Community Being Sought

I’ve been informed that two families with children enrolled at the Bruce Monroe @ Park View Elementary School are currently facing deportation proceedings and are approaching the community for help. A fundraiser has been started to raise money to provide legal representation to the families who are currently in deportation proceedings. As of last night, 45% of the $10,000 goal had been raised.

Local charities are not taking new cases, but attorneys willing to represent the families for a reduced fee have been found. The organizers are asking for help from the community. Any money not spent representing these or other families in deportation proceedings will be donated to the CAIR coalition and CARECEN in equal parts.
