Their deportation is a devastating blow to our community. Maria and Eusebio are model neighbors and friends. Maria has dedicated her life to caring for cancer and cardiac patients at Highland Hospital. Eusebio has worked as a truck driver for the last twelve years. Just last year, they fulfilled their dream of purchasing a home in Oakland. In their spare time, they give back to our community.
But despite their contributions, ICE rejected our calls for compassion and targeted Maria and Eusebio for deportation. I am saddened beyond words by this decision, but my commitment to protecting our immigrant community remains unshaken.
Next week, I will be holding a community forum to discuss this administration’s enforcement and deportation policies, as well as next steps for immigration reform. I hope you and your family will be able to join me for this important discussion. Immigration experts and translators will also attend to contribute to our conversation.
