Jose Bello. A father. Living in US since 3. Courageously stood up at public meeting in Kern County, CA. Recited “Dear America.” A protest poem he wrote. 36 hours later, ICE retaliated. Arrested & detained him. Set $50k bail. NFL players just bailed him out.

Without TPS, hundreds of thousands of people will face the choice of either staying in the U.S. without permission or returning to a perilous "homeland" that some of them barely know. It will mean yet another form of family separation. via
