Baldomero is a poultry worker and community leader, and was one of the 680 indigenous and Latino workers who were arrested in ICE’s racist and retaliatory workplace raids in 2019. After the raids, Baldomero and his wife Sylvia fought courageously to reunite and keep their family together. After serving time for a “re-entry” conviction, he was finally released.
Years later, on April 12th, Baldomero was arrested during his immigration check-in at the ICE field office in Pearl, Mississippi, and then transferred to ICE’s migrant prison at LaSalle, Louisiana. Today Baldomero faces deportation, but with your help we can ensure he remains home with his family and two young children, ages 5 and 9.
