These three young girls are detained at the Karnes “Family” Detention Center with their mother and need our help!
PLEASE CALL ICE AND DEMAND THAT MARIA ESTELA AND HER 3 DAUGHTERS BE RELEASED FROM DETENTION and ALLOW THE GIRLS TO TELL THEIR STORIES IN INDIVIDUAL CREDIBLE FEAR INTERVIEWS!
Maria Estela Marquez Marquez and her three daughters — Melissa (15 years old), Carmen (13 years old), and Jackeline (11 years old) — are refugees from El Salvador who have been “detained” by ICE at the Karnes Detention Center since early August, 2014. On November 21, María Estela received a final deportation order from which there is no administrative appeal.
Maria Estela was held at gunpoint by three gang members and her life and the lives of her 3 girls were threatened. The same gang members assaulted one of her daughters on her way home from school. The family fled to the US, only to be detained for almost 4 months. Each of the girls needs to have her own credible fear interview. Please help STOP the deportation of an entire family who will be in harm’s way if we don’t act quickly!
