Press Conference/Rally #FreeIvan

@ William Way LGBT Community Center

1315 Spruce St
Philadelphia PA  19107



What: Press Conference/Rally to #FreeIvan
When: Monday, February 19th at 11:30am
Where: William Way LGBT Community Center (1315 Spruce st)

Please join Juntos & Galaei Monday morning for a press conference/rally to demand that ICE #FreeIvan and allows him to be reunited with his husband.

On January 31, Jose “Ivan” Nuñez was attending his marriage interview at USCIS with his husband Paul fully expecting to be in and out of the office. Paul and Ivan are in love and have been married since April 9th, 2016. What should have been a dream come true ended in a nightmare. In the middle of his interview ICE agents stormed into the interview and handcuffed him without warning.

We believe that love has no borders and ask you to join us in demanding that ICE free Ivan from detention so he may be reunited with his husband.

If Ivan was to be deported back to Mexico, Ivan’s life would be in jeopardy due to his sexuality. His sister, who is also queer, is currently in hiding with her partner back home and close friends of the family have been severely assaulted for their sexual orientation. As of January 13th, USCIS has deemed Ivan and Paul’s marriage petition valid and Ivan has passed his Reasonable Fear interview, meaning there is no reason why he should still be in detention.
