Dina came to the U.S. at the age of 20, fleeing gang harassment and violence in El Salvador. She is the mother and primary caretaker of a three year old U.S. citizen son. She could be deported as soon as next week, days before mother’s day.
Dina was placed into removal proceedings after police came searching her home for the previous inhabitant and arrested her instead. Police turned her over to ICE once they realized she was not a citizen, even though no criminal charges were brought against her.
Dina was bonded out and moved to file for asylum, but was denied in 2011. She appealed the decision and was denied again this past March.
“I am afraid to go back to EL Salvador, not only because of what I experienced, but also because of the violence my family living there still experiences. I do not want my son to grow up in that environment.”
Dina de la Paz Alvayero Centeno should receive deferred action and a stay of removal in a favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion. She is the primary caretaker of her three-year-old U.S. citizen son and is afraid to return to El Salvador due to the gang harassment and violence that she and her family have experienced. Ms. De la Paz Alvayero Centeno is an important leading member of our community and a loving mother who deserves to be with her U.S. citizen child.
Please sign the petiton and make a call to ICE in support of Dina.
