Hane Begu moved from Albania to Michigan 10 years ago fleeing the dangerous political situation in her home country. She is married to a US citizen, Bill, and has two beautiful children. Her claim for asylum was denied, and she is now facing deportation.
Armed ICE agents came to her home without a warrant while the children were trying on their Halloween costumes several weeks ago. She has been in detention in Battle Creek ever since, where an ICE officer has repeatedly denied one of her attorneys access.
Hane has no criminal record, and has been faithfully paying her taxes for a decade. Since Bill was laid off from his job as a paramedic, Hane has become the sole breadwinner for her family.
The Obama administration announced a new policy in August to suspend deportation proceedings against undocumented immigrants with no criminal record-- immigrants like Hane. Yet, she is still being prosecuted.
Tell ICE that Hane, and thousands like her in our detention system, deserve to be released to their families-- not deported.
