I am a volunteer with the Los Angeles Occupy Fights Foreclosures subcommittee of Occupy LA. We are trying to help the Cardenas Quinones family (husband, wife and children).
This is yet another typical foreclosure case where the bank gave the homeowner hope that they would consider them for a loan modification; but, instead chose to foreclose on the home and sell it to an investor. The interesting story here is that she was arrested for trespassing, in her own home, even though the home was filled with her personal property.
The unique thing about their case, which we all need to be concerned about, is that instead of the federal government coming to this family’s aid, they deported her on a technicality; notwithstanding the fact that her husband and two children are all US citizens.
This family now risks being broken, unless we stand up and say no.
The department of Homeland Security has temporarily allowed Blanca to return to the United States, for 90 days (till Sept 21, 2012); but, this time has run out and she needs an extension to prevent her family from being broken. We are requesting that her 90 day period be extended to two years until the US immigration laws can be amended so that this type of thing does not happen again.
Please forward this petition link to all of your friends, and post it on your Facebook, Twitter, etc.., pages so that we can get more signers:
Here are some links to more info if you want to read more about their case:
