Video via @PuenteAZ: Ivon Díaz – Detained the day before her wedding
Ivon Díaz had big plans for her wedding day. But instead of celebrating, she found herself in detention after being arrested at a work site raid by the Maricopa County Sheriffs Department in Phoenix, Arizona, one day before her ceremony.
She spent the next three months in jail, only for being at work. Ivon is 24 years old, came to the U.S. when she was 15, has a 7 month old U.S. citizen daughter, and is active in her community. Were it not for the felony charge imposed by the Sheriff’s department for working, she would be eligible for President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival program.Ivon is not ready to go.
She’s ready to fight for herself, her family, and her community. Will you join her? Please take action by sending an e-mail to ICE director John Morton and ICE regional field director Katrina Kane.
