Going To Visit Selvin's Family, Today!

| | Comments ()
I don't have much to write, today.  I'm up early preparing for a trip to see the family of Selvin Arévalo, today.  For those of you that haven't been following, I put everything I had into getting Selvin out of detention in Maine.  Right after we got him out, we learned that his appeal for asylum was denied, and while we were able to file another appeal, he is still very much at risk of detention and deportation every day. 

I don't plan on letting him get deported any time soon, though, so I thought it would be good for me to visit his family while I was here in Guatemala.  I'm bringing a video of him for his family to watch and will try to bring a video back to Selvin.  If you're all lucky, and Selvin says it's okay, I'll be able to edit out something of the whole experience for all of you to see. 

Wish me luck in the meantime.  I'll be back in Boston on Friday and back to pushing full force to empower migrants.
