The Story

My name is Emmanuel. I am a Haitian immigrant seeking asylum in the United States. When I arrived at the US border at Tijuana after journeying through Central and South America, I was detained in the Adelanto detention facility, eight-five miles north east of Los Angeles.

After spending more than nine months in Adelanto, and after three appearances in the immigration court, the judge ordered my release – on condition that I could pay a $17,000 bond. I did not have the money to pay but I found some good people outside of Adelanto who helped raise the twenty-percent required deposit required for my release. However, the conditions of my release from Adelanto required that I wear two ankle monitors – one for the bond company, the other for ICE.

The bond company charges me $420 per month for the monitor and I must wear it until my immigration case is settled – be it in ten months or ten years. They have told me if I pay eighty-percent of the $17,000 bond – or $13,600—they will remove the ankle monitor.

I was released from Adelanto. But the ankle monitor is like a shackle, a daily reminder that I am not free. I would buy my freedom from the bond company but until I am granted authorization, it is illegal for me to work in the United States.

I am asking you, people who know what freedom is, to help me raise the money to pay the bond company and purchase my freedom. Any amount will help. And while I can not pay you back, you will always be in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you. May God bless you.
