Lakewood family fights to save father from deportation

“Don’t deport my Dad,” read a sign carried by a four-year-old girl outside the Tukwila offices of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Thursday.

She and her sisters staged a last-minute protest that helped save Jose Robles from being deported back to Mexico.

Robles came to the U.S. illegally 13 years ago to make a better life for his family. The Lakewood man runs a painting business with his wife and supports his three daughters.

“Any minute I could lose my dad. It’s just all going to go to waste, because they’re deciding to send him away. It’s not fair,” 14-year-old Yuritzy Robles told KING 5 Thursday.

Yuritzy and sister Brenda, 19, started an online petition and a Facebook page and showed up to protest outside the ICE offices where their dad was turning himself in.

“They told us he could be detained and probably deported. We were just here to show him that we needed him here and there (are) people to support him,” Brenda Robles explained.
