English below

Mi nombre es Irene, vine a este país hace 19 años, no he regresado a mi país. No he tenido la oportunidad de regresar por la violencia que hay en Lagos de Moreno, Jalisco, Mexico.

Actualmente, mi mama, dos hermanos y sobrino se entregaron con inmigración en la frontera el 19 de Junio, hicieron esto por que temen por sus vidas. Hace tres años, mi hermano Oscar fue desaparecido y hace como un año mi hermano Jose fue recogido en su casa. Hace como 8 meses mi hermano, Adrian fue asesinado afuera de su casa y hace como cuatro meses mi hermano Mauricio fue asesinado, los culpables lo hicieron en su hogar. En menos de 3 años he perdido 4 hermanos.  Mi familia teme por su vida y por eso tomaron la decision de venirse a EEUU, para no tener el mismo destino.

Mi mama, dos hermanos y sobrino están detenidxs en los centros de detención Eloy y Florence en Arizona. Le estoy pidiendo a la comunidad en general que me ayuden con gastos legales que el mínimo sera $15,000, mas aparte tendré que pagar por fianzas.

Les ruego que me ayuden a reunirme con mi familia, ellos han pasado por cosas que no se lo deseo a nadie. Quisiera sacarlos de detención lo mas pronto posible. Me preocupa mi madre que ya esta mayor, no se si aguantara estar en un centro de detención.

Por favor ayuden con lo que puedan $1, $5, $10, $20 de poquito en poquito se que podremos lograr la meta.

My name is Irene, I came to this country 19 years ago, I have not left the country since. I have not gotten the chance to go back because of the violence in my hometown Lagos de Moreno, Jalisco.

Currently, my mom, two brothers and a nephew turned themselves in on June 19 at the border because they feared for their lives. Three years ago, my brother Oscar disappeared and about a year ago my brother Jose was picked up in his home. About 8 months ago my brother, Adrian was killed outside of his home and about four months my brother Mauricio was killed, those that killed him did it in his home.  In less than 3 years I have lost 4 siblings to violence. My entire family fears for their lives and made the decision to leave their hometown so that they would not experience the same fate.

Right now they are detained at Eloy and Florence Detention Centers in Arizona. I am asking you for help because we need to pay for legal fees which amount to $15,000 plus I would also need to have the money ready for bond.

I am pleading with you to please help me reunite with my family. They have gone through enough trauma in their hometown to have to go through detention. I worry for my elderly mother who might not make it in detention.

Please donate what you can$1, $5, $10, $20 we the help of my community I know that I can be reunited with my family.
