Gabriela is a gift to our community, and she aspires to live the American dream.  The only problem?  She's not an American...well, at least not technically.  That's why your help is so vital.

A family member brought Gabriela to the United States when she was an infant using a travel visa.  She has no recollection of life outside of the U.S., her biological mother died years ago, and she has no contact with her native country - El Salvador.  She has remained for nearly 17 years as an "undocumented immigrant."

Now, she is a star student.  She was so excited when, just the other day, she handed me (her School Resource Officer) a college acceptance letter.  She passed the Advanced Placement (AP) Exam for World History, and wants to pursue a degree in Criminal Justice or Law. 

Gabriela wants to enter law enforcement, and aspires to make it to the FBI.  She has already successfully completed all three levels of the high school Criminal Justice coursework.

But unless we help her, Gabriela's dreams will remain just out of reach.  The federal government has established the Deferred Action program specifically for cases such as this.  While her application will not grant legal status at this time, she will obtain the necessary documentation to get a social security number, a driver's license, a job, and - most importantly - to go to college.

Combined fees for the attorney and government application equal $1,500.  That's a lot for me.  That may be a lot for you as well.  But it's not a lot for all of us working together.  So I'm asking you today, please help me make a difference in this young person's life.  Just imagine, a group of cops (and teachers, and others) coming together for our future.

Join me today by giving your best tax deductible gift through Covered Law Enforcement to the gift of Gab...
