Details about event

On Thursday, February 18th, Edith Espinal will leave Columbus Mennonite Church, where she’s been living in sanctuary for more than three years, to meet with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers. While ICE officials have assured Edith is not a priority for detention or deportation, this is still a risk. That's why Edith needs our support!

Join us tomorrow, February 18th from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the ICE field office at 675 Brooksedge Boulevard to keep ICE accountable to their assurances and promises that Edith is safe from detention and deportation.

The Biden administration has announced a series of immigration executive orders, including one that sets new guidance about who is considered a priority for removal. Under these new guidelines, Edith should not be considered a priority for removal and should be granted a reprieve from deportation.

Edith will be joined by her attorney, Lizbeth Mateo, herself undocumented, as well as by faith and community leaders who hope to secure a reprieve from deportation for Edith. Following a press conference, supporters will gather for a prayer of sending as a small group of allies will enter the local ICE field office to negotiate, while Espinal’s community of support stands vigil awaiting results. Dress warmly and we hope to see you there!
