The Story

At approximately 7 a.m. on May 11, ICE agents with other law enforcement officers took Saul Cervantes from his home in East Los Angeles. Officers knocked on the door and began questioning Saul's mother, Leticia Fernandez, asking her who lived in the apartment. She said it was only her family and a friend who rents one of their rooms. Saul had just come back from dropping off his brother at school. When he heard his mother talking with the officers, he went to the door and stepped outside. At that moment, officials immediately detained him and took him to the Theo Lacy Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention facility in Orange County. They did not have a warrant. They did not give a reason to the family for taking him.

The communities of East Los Angeles and Boyle Heights are working tirelessly to get Saul out of the detention facility and not allow him to be deported. We need folks to call (714) 712-8074 or (714) 935-9640! Saul Cervantes' date of birth is: July 24, 1992.

The family is in desperate need for money to help pay for legal support.

**We need to post bail of $15,000 to get Saul out!**

Unfortunately, the judge ruled that Saul Cervantes must remain in custody until a bail amount of $15,000 can be posted. Otherwise he will be deported! We urgently need your help! We also have another fundraiser on another site by a family member of Saul. This is a person, a father, a son's livelihood. Please help keep this family together!

**Court for Saul is tomorrow in downtown Los Angeles, not Lake Forest**

The mother of Saul Cervantes (DOB: 7-24-92) has just informed us he will be in immigration court tomorrow morning, May 24, at 8:30 a.m. at 606 S. Olive St. Los Angeles, CA 17th Floor. His lawyer will be present, as will family members. We are asking for folks to show up and, if allowed in, to show support for Saul and let him and the family know we are not going away anytime soon. We have given all the money raised from the YouCaring fundraiser to go toward posting bail, if granted. We are hopeful Saul will be released. We will update his supporters as soon as possible. The mother, Leticia, wishes to thank everyone for their generous support and also wishes for folks to continue keeping Claudia Rueda in their hearts and to push for her immediate release as well! No more deportations!
