We did it! Eva is coming home.
Thanks to everyone who signed, called, wrote letters, and showed up today, we are happy to announce that Eva will return home to be with her son and family.
Eva, La Unión del Pueblo Entero and the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health thank you for your efforts and those of everyone involved in the #LetEvaStay campaign. We could not have done this without you!
But the battle against the racist, xenophobic, anti-immigrant administration that seeks to trample on the basic human rights of immigrant families is not over. Eva is set to check in in three months, and we plan to be her side throughout the process.
We must also mention that fellow Poderosa, Alejandra Pablos was illegally detained at her check-in by ICE in Arizona and needs your help as well. Please sign the petition for her release.
