The Story

[IN ENGLISH BELOW]

El 13 de Octubre, Marcelina Ríos fue arrestada por vender elotes en Rancho Cucamonga y más tarde detenida por agentes de ICE. Estamos luchando para evitar su deportación, pero mientras tanto, su familia ha estado enfrentando un creciente estrés financiero. Marcelina tiene cinco hijos, todos ciudadanos. Su hija mayor, de 17 años, tiene graves discapacidades y depende de su madre para todos los aspectos de su cuidado. Los fondos recaudados ayudarán a la familia con costos legales al igual que para sobrevivir mientras su madre está detenida.

ENGLISH: 
Maricelina Rios was arrested by police, and detained by ICE agents on Oct 13th in Rancho Cucamonga for selling corn. We are fighting to prevent her from being deported but in the meantime her family has been facing increasing financial stress. Marcelina has five kids—all citizens—and her eldest daughter who is 17 years old is severely handicapped and depends on her mother for all aspects of her care. The funds raised here will help the Rios family pay legal fees and get by while their mother is in detention.

Thank you all for the support during yesterday's press conference in Los Angeles, CA.

We filed a motion to reopen Marcelina's case in immigration court and set her free from immigration detention. After 6 montths, she remains in detention at the Adelanto Detention Center. We hope to hear back from immigration judge with positive news to set bond so she can fight her deportation from the outside and be with her family. 

We thank you for your generous support. Bond is usually set around $10,000 for immigration court. The PEOC is committed to set Marcelina free, stop her deportation and to continue to advocate on behalf of low-wage, immigrant workers and to decriminalize street vending. 

Thank you again for your continued support.
