As many of you know, at the beginning of August I had the opportunity to #travel
to South Texas as an interpreter for a bunch of lawyers. There we interviewed countless children that either came here unaccompanied or were separated from their parents at the border. All of them had unique and harrowing stories, but one in particular was in desperate need of #help
David was fleeing #Honduras
where MS-13 was trying to recruit him. When he refused to join, they began killing people right in front of him. In addition, he was also escaping domestic violence.
After crossing the border, David was quickly apprehended and ultimately sent to a children’s shelter where he was in good hands. But when he turned 18 on August 3rd, ICE had a gift for him: they came at 6 AM, shackled him up, and took him to an adult detention center in Houston, where, without help, he was destined to be sent back to Honduras to fight for his #life
David and I have been in touch ever since, and we were able to get an attorney to take his case pro-bono. David is set to go to court on Tuesday for a bond hearing. If he gets out on bond, he can travel to Baltimore and do immigration court here where his chances are significantly better of being allowed to stay. The attorney has told us, however, that we should be prepared for a bond between $8000-$10,000.
We are in desperate need of help with getting that money so David can get out of detention and on with his dreams of becoming a mechanical engineer. I would #love
if you could help—any amount helps and will make both David and #me
