Demand ICE #FreeTeresa

Teresa* is a 26-year-old woman who was forced to flee her home in Nicaragua after facing assault, intimidation, and threats because of her opposition to policies of the Nicaraguan government. She came to the U.S. seeking asylum.

Now, she’s being detained in Berks County, Pennsylvania by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Teresa has been in detention for more than four months.

Teresa’s detainment is harmful and unnecessary — and it violates U.S. human rights obligations. She should be freed and with her community while she pursues her right to seek asylum.

We’ve teamed up with Aldea — The People’s Justice Center to stop this injustice.

Tell ICE Field Office Director in Philadelphia: release Teresa immediately.

*Teresa’s name has been anonymized to protect her safety.
