The Story

This past Tuesday, 4-17-18, Luis Enrique Estrada Perez was taken by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in front of his house in the private housing projects of the Wyvernwood Garden Apartments. He is being held in the Adelanto Detention Facility, a private federal prison, in San Bernardino County. Although he most likely will be transferred to other detention facilities.

Luis is the latest casualty in the federal government's war against undocumented working-class immigrants! More than 100 immigrants have been taken by ICE, according to the LA Times. Just in Boyle Heights and East Los Angeles there has been approximately 10-to-12 people already detained, with some having been deported! All, without exception, were hard-working providers for their families. This is not coincidence. Our communities are been targeted most likely because of the high-level of militancy and revolutionary organizing.

Undocumented immigrants are held to high, moralistic standards. They can't make mistakes. They must be ethical Americans. Whereas citizens can go to jail, accumulate tickets, sin, and then be forgiven, undocumented immigrants are chewed up, sucked dry of their labor and spat out!

But we are not deterred. His girlfriend of 18 years and mother of his children, Petra, is diligently working with lawyers to represent him in court and demand his release. But the family needs help with the legal fees. It is approximately $8,000-to-$10,000! But we are initially starting off with $1,000.

That is why our organization, Serve the People - Los Angeles', reaffirms that ICE is a total and vicious enemy of the people, specifically working-class undocumented immigrants! Undocumented immigrants are under attack by the federal government - we must fight back!  We must move away from defensive strategies into offensive, preventative strategies beyond the endless Know-Your-Rights workshops, to fight ICE. To be clear: we need defense units to prevent ICE from taking our people.


We urge our supporters and all supporters of undocumented working-class immigrants to call Adelanto Detention Facility and/or visit and demand the immediate release of Luis!

Call them! (760) 561-6100 or (760) 530-9300

Visit them! 9483 Commerce Way, Adelanto, CA 92301

Luis Enrique Estrada Perez. Date of birth: 02/27/1979. File no: 213 019 980. Subject ID: 361124569. Warrant issuing officer: Ryan Hicks.

LUIS IS OUT AND WITH HIS FAMILY!

Luis was bailed out of the immigration detention center last week after his family and supporters were able to raise enough money to post bail.

He is in good spirits, back at home with his family and appreciates all the help and work the community put in to get him out.

Now, we still need to raise funds to pay off the loan and other legal fees.

So please, keep giving, keep sharing! And from the bottom of our hearts, in revolutionary struggle and commitment, thank you.
