Last Friday we attended the bond hearing for Edvin Vega-Galvan, the husband and father of the Ortega family who lived with us this past Fall. Edvin received a bond of $9,000 from the judge. With your support we hope to raise these funds so Edvin can be released as soon as possible to be reunited with his family. In addition, the sooner he is released the better it will be for his asylum hearing the beginning of June.
Edvin told us this morning that he has been feeling sad because he has never been separated from his family this long. He said, “I have been inside now half a year and I want to be with my family so I can support them. I want to be a father to my children. Please do me this favor and help if you are able. Thank you and God bless you.”
On behalf of the Ortega family thank you for any support you able to give to Edvin’s bond. No amount is too small. You can donate through our website, our Paypal link below or by sending a check made out to the Restoration Project, Florence and mailed to Casa Mariposa, 127 N. Palomas Avenue, Tucson, AZ 85745. Please write Edvin bond support in the memo.
Thank you again for your support of this family on their journey and your support of the work of Casa Mariposa to accompany those who currently are or have been imprisoned by our immigration system.
