Thumbs up need your help OT, to rescue a friend and her mother

some background info:

Quote:
Regina was brought to the United States when she was just a minor, alongside her mother Eveline Rahardja. She quickly got situated in society and fell in love with education and all the little things in life. Upon graduating from Gabrielino High School in San Gabriel, California, she is now majoring Biology at Cal State University of Fullerton. She is a hard working student and full of life. Being an avid student, and studying biology it only made sense that she joined the CSUF Undergraduate Biology Club. In her first semester she was an officer, and her second she made Vice President; assuring she would make president the next. Since she was taken she had to withdraw from all her classes, which is unfair, as she had worked so hard throughout this semester. Her mother, Eveline Rahardja, is extremely giving and caring. She is an active member of their local church; helping with community and donating whenever and whatever she can. She also has another daughter, Tiffany Husman; which is a minor, but a United States Citizen. Tiffany already went through Thanksgiving without her parents, and let us hope she will not go through Christmas without her mom and older sister by her side.
and here's what happened:

Quote:
On October 28th, 2010, two days after Regina's 20th birthday; ICE agents took her and her mother into custody. They were taken into custody because their Asylum case (a path to citizenship) was denied and they had a final order of removal. However their Asylum case is pending for a re-appeal when they were picked up. It had the potential to be reopened. Now they're being detained and were facing deportation. The 9th circuit has granted a temporary stay of removal since their case is pending. At the moment they're still being detained when ICE has no reason to hold them. Is this how America treats law abiding individuals that are doing the right thing? They pay taxes and follow the right steps to try to get citizenship. Why do we subject them to cruel and unusual punishment, and detain them among criminals in a Jail when they have done nothing wrong? So we the family are asking you to help sign the petition telling / asking them to release Regina Husman (A075-718-108) and her mother Eveline Rahardja (A075-718-107).

If they're not released, they will spend Christmas and New Years in the detention facility as they have done so already with Thanksgiving.
If you could be so kind and sign the petition at the link provided below, that'd be Thanks.

http://immigration.change.org/petiti...and_her_mother

and of course,

regina


and her e92 335i

It wont really help them. Asylum is a very particular and difficult way to enter any country, if the authorities think you dont really need it, tough luck.

I feel kind of bad about this thread. There are plenty of unattractive, hard working, law abiding Latinos in America today, just because she is particularly attractive and drives a BMW does not mean she deserves special treatment.

Anyways, still, US immigration law and policies are desperately in need of reform.

Good luck to her. My dad barely got asylum in the US, and he was wanted DOA by Ceauşescu's secret police in 1970's communist Romania.

What's her reason for needing asylum? They REALLY want a good reason these days..

Asylum from what?
Hard-working tax payer? Instate tuition for an illegal immigrant huh?
Hmm... Go shopping and drive a BMW? Or should she have used those funds to qualify for a student visa instead?
I'm sorry for the harsh words, but my guess leads me to think her mothers decision to overstay her visitation to the US may have cost her daughter a bright future.
This could have been prevented if they decided to follow the rules.

I apologize ahead for flaming on this post, I just feel like this "tragedy" could have been prevented in so many ways. (i.e. Student visa, work study program, H1B visa, application for US residency while at country of origin, US citizen sponsorship, etc)

Ehm, yes... yes it does. If she's attractive and drives a BMW, I say: "let her stay"...

Don't you see? We have to even out the unattractive/Audi driving population as best we can...

Pretty harsh stand on immigration issues for a guy with a handle like that ...Unless you've got your Green Card and now want the gate to be closed off

I guess he wants a variant of this to be implemented.

I think the guy only meant they should have planned ahead. If their request was denied and they didn't do anything (like applying for a different visa) till the final order, it is clearly a a bit of negligence. I still dont approve of locking them up with common criminals, they should be afforded bit more comfort, seeing as it may take a while.

+1 on marry her. I don't know enough about the different imigration things to weigh in on this but I sure as heck believe they should be treated better since they at least attempted getting in legally instead of just coming in a mooching.
