On August 26, Lina was detained at Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport on her way home from a trip to Brazil. Lina is a Lawful Permanent Resident of the US. She was denied re-entry and taken to Houston Immigration Detention Center to await Deportation Hearing.

Grounds for detention: Lina has a misdemeanor charge of possession of "drug paraphernalia" of 2006, to which she pleaded no contest. The "paraphernalia" consisted of a green glass marijuana pipe found in her car during a routine traffic stop. Her car was searched because two cases of beer were in plain view on the back seat, and Carolina was just 20 years old. NO illegal substances were found in her possession.

Per insisting requests of her friends and family who want to support her in more than just one way, I agreed to start this fundraising.

Funds will be used to cover costs of her legal defense.

Any surplus will be donated to the Charity of Lina's choice.

Thank You!
