From NC Dream Team

Call DC ICE Now! Tell ICE to drop the hold on Uriel Alberto (A# 089-828-718).

Washington DC ICE: (202) 732-3000

Sample script: ”Hi, I was calling to ask that ICE drop the hold on Uriel Alberto (A#089-828-718). According to president Obama, he should not be facing deportation because he is Dream Act eligible. He is the father of a US citizen child and sole caretaker of his sisters. He stood up for his community and should be back home with his family. Please drop the ICE hold NOW!”

RALEIGH–Members of the NC DREAM Team and El Cambio are demanding that Uriel Alberto, 24, of Winston-Salem, be released immediately after a Wednesday protest at the legislature. Alberto is the father of a U.S. Citizen and a responsible student. The conference will be at 330 S. Salisbury St., Raleigh, NC 27601 at 230PM.

Alberto is a member of El Cambio in Winston-Salem. He came to Raleigh to protest the Select Committee on the State’s Role in Immigration Policy. This committee, with its plans to expand police power in the state, intends to tear him from his son, his sister whom he supports through school, and his education. Alberto has completed three semesters at Lees-McRae College.

After high school, Alberto received a Division I track scholarship to Eastern Carolina University, but was unable to accept it because he was undocumented. Life was difficult, but he pressed forward with his education at Lees-McRae and also had a son.

Alberto cannot be deported; deporting him would affect innocent others who depend on him. He is a young man who deserves a chance to pursue his education and raise his son.
