#Not1More Deportation

Sobeida López

Mountain View Worker Center


Sobeida López has been working since age 7 where she helped her family work coffee fields and pick other crops in the countryside of Mexico.  She came to the US 13 years ago in search of a better life for her family and now works cooking and doing childcare as a day laborer in Mountainview. She says, “Through the fast I hope to communicate with God so that he touches the heart of President Obama and moves him to stop the deportations. Each day I live with fear for my husband and my self that ICE could come to deport us and I have to ask what would happen to my daughter. If he stopped the deportations and we were given papers I could live without fear and visit my oldest daughter still in Mexico who I haven’t seen for over a decade.”
