Alfredo Flores is a Jackson Heights resident, the husband of US citizen Wendoly (Wendy) Valverde, and the father of three US-born children. He came to the US from Mexico and has led a peaceful and productive life in Queens. In July 2018, the bus Alfredo was taking to Seattle to visit his brother crossed briefly and unexpectedly into Canada, and Alfredo was detained by immigration authorities in Buffalo for 20 days. Wendy, their family, and friends struggled to raise the $10,000 for Alfredo’s bond and successfully had his case moved to New York City.
Because of his detention and the possibility of his deportation, Alfredo and Wendy’s children are experiencing worsening emotional problems. Wendy must bear a great family financial burden of support, and she is also caring for her mother, a cancer patient. If Alfredo is deported, his wife, ill mother-in-law, and young children would suffer immeasurable, irreparable hardship.
We call on the US Government to allow Alfredo to remain united in the US with his family while he pursues legal residence and citizenship here.
