Video by @SJBeez: No One Can Do This Alone – How Immigrant Family & Community Beat Deportation

May 31, 2011

via SJ Beez De-Bug:

Jeysson Minota, a permanent legal resident, faced deportation, stemming from a vandalism charge due to graffiti. After four years of being in and out of detention, he was able to beat the deportation order, and stay with his family in the US.

This mini-documentary is part of an ongoing series chronicling the stories of Silicon Valley De-Bug’s Albert Cobarrubias Justice Project, a community organizing model that encourages family and community involvement in the court systems. An article further describing Mr. Minota’s case can be read at: Stopping Deportations Before They Start.
