Andy Mathe has been in jail for 86 days now and facing constant harassment from ICE officials. You should sign the petition to stop the deportation of the Mathe family to help Andy. The family is quite likely to be deported back to their death.
It may seem like the number of people ICE is deporting has increase (quite possibly), but I’d also add that the number of people getting paid to work on ‘Education Not Deportation’ cases has increased along with the visibility of networks that have been fighting the good fight even before foundations cared to pour money into it.
I still have not seen any foundation money going to the people who put into place the infrastructure to fight these deportation cases. But they do it anyway because it is the right thing to do.
