His story:

Samuel opened a business as a young adult in his home country. He married, had children, and happily provided for his family for many years. Samuel was also a community organizer and was active in the political sphere. He did not support his president’s party, and he was photographed at several protests. The police and local government threatened him and eventually burned down his business. He left his family and went into hiding, moving to 13 different houses to stay alive, but the police kept tracking him down. Samuel made the difficult decision to journey to the U.S.-Mexico border to request asylum, despite having no connections here. He was taken into custody and transported to Colorado, where he was detained for ten months until a judge heard the evidence and granted him political asylum. DHS appealed the decision right away because they claim he hasn’t suffered any bodily harm at the hands of the government. 

Since moving into my home, my family has interacted with him daily through language lessons, meals, and every day life. Samuel very  is studious and is motivated to learn English, stay active, and help out around the house. He is remarkably kind, and my family is blessed by his presence. 

Our team is hoping to raise $7,600 to cover legal fees
