Immigrant Stories: How did you come to US?

Celebrating the Immigrant in all of US--even you, yes you


The pictures included in this entry comment on the case of my partner Jose Alberto Martinez Gomez (now commonly known as A#200-246-719). Jose was detained on July 27, 2012 after immigration arrived for his friend and Jose happened to be present.

I have been in contact with and visited Jose in the past two weeks and this is what that has looked like:

13 days

10 calls
158 minutes of calls (minus time machine talks)
$100 in calling cards

4 visits
2 hours of visits

584 miles of driving
$100 of gas
6 hours of driving

$250 (+$750 in the next three weeks) in lawyer fees

13 days = 312 hours = 18,720 minutes of panic
