Immigration Legal Support for Chris Ruiz – Bring Chris home!

Update posted by Jennifer Miller On Aug 29, 2019

Don't think our immigration system is broken? Think again. Chris had a hearing with his attorney to file paperwork this morning. Next court appearance: December 11th. DECEMBER!!! Three and a half months away. They'll keep him locked up in the detention center just sitting there. Absolutley ridiculous. We mailed a last ditch effort brief they requested for the appeal to get him released on bond, but hearing the other cases Chris tells me about, I'm not feeling very optimistic. Meanwhile, our government is paying this private facility owned by the Geo Group hundreds of dollars per day per detainee... it disgusts me. Immigration reform is needed. Use your vote wisely in 2020.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I have an attorney hired to consult with Chris on Tuesday and review his case. Chris believes he actually had a status card of some sort as a child, but that would be part of his original immigration file that is closed and archived in Los Angeles. Getting that file may be a challenge. Hopefully she will decide to take on his case so we don't have to delay his court appearance set for July 17th. Keep good thoughts and share this link! Thanks everyone!

I just read your heart wrenching story. I can relate to the story because my mother is from another country. I hope that things work out sooner than later for you and Chris
