Yesterday, Representative Jim McDermott, introduced a private bill on behalf of Jorge-Alonso Chehade, allowing him to qualify for legal permanent residency. Today, motion to reopen Jorge-Alonso’s immigration case will be filed to the Seattle Immigration Court, ending the deportation order and deadline.

Please call Representative McDermott’s office and thank him for his actions: 202-225-3106

While this is a victory, its only a partial one. We can’t expect lawmakers to step in and play hero each time a DREAM student is facing deportation. Many have already been deported or will continue to be deported while Congress and the administration keep delaying immigration reform and the DREAM Act. Just today a new blog post is up at DREAMActivist that has a letter from a deported DREAM student. We have to keep up the pressure.
