The love that God has shown me is an unbreakable love. Since God gave me the reason to be, I learned to fight for the truth and freedom of our peoples, With Love, Respect and equality, My struggle is the struggle of the people who suffer like many migrants and refugees. I will continue to transform my pain into love for equality and social justice. In honor of Moises, my son I will continue to fight for justice to be restored in this country, and until the immigration authorities stop putting our kids in cages, the parents in federal prison and our communities in danger. Until they stop criminalizing our migrants and asylum seeker.

Moises was Murder in El Salvador after the ICE-ERO and the DHS try to put Francisco Aguirre in federal prison for more then 20 years. Moises got scare and decide to go back to El Salvador.. He was playing Soccer when two men call him by his last name. when he answer they shot him to death. The ERO Enforcement and Removal Program is not helpful to anyone in this country. it only bring hate and insecurity to our communities. Many minor are getting kill after the ERO detain and deport them. For many youth like Moises and Francisco going back to their country is a death sentence. ICE-ERO must disappear from our communities.

Francisco Aguirre can end up in a coffin if he get deported back to El Salvador. Follow Francisco’s case and help with his asylum process. #UnidosConFrancisco
