And he does art that makes you glad to breathe.
Miguel is as helpful and valuable at his self-managed shelter as he is at
Miguel was arrested a week ago and is being held pending trial and
possible deportation as an illegal alien. To send any man to certain
death would be appalling; to waste a valuable potential citizen like
Miguel is plain stupid. To deny him visits or communication with any of
his friends, as is being done now, is unjust. Miguel has been in jail a
week and still has no court date; he cannot get out on bail because
neither he nor his friends have enough money.
Please help Miguel. We need him. Help us get him back.
He has unfinished work.
Among the people working to help Miguel are:
Marta Lemberg (206) 784-8363
Candace Hegeman (206) 781-6885
Real Change (206) 441-3247
StreetLife Gallery (206) 443-1546
We, the artists and friends of StreetLife Gallery and our friends of the October 22nd Coalition, plan to keep this webpage up as a reminder of the precarious rights of all immigrants in the United States. We have started a forum for the discussion of immigrant rights in the United States, and how to improve them. Please join in the forum.
