Juana Torres ...

Juana Torres
43 years old
Mesa, AZ

Juana came to this country in 1988 in hopes of giving her daughter a better life. She talks about how difficult it was to cross the border:

" My one year old daughter and I suffered hunger and thirst trying to accomplish the goal of obtaining a better life. Thank God that I found a job and worked a few years as a single mother until I met the love of my life. Together, we had four children, all U.S citizens. The years passed and a family emergency urge me to go back. After two years, I came back. That was a year and a half ago and that is when I got detained by ICE at the Nogales border. I was put in jail for three days, then to Tucson, Az, and then transferred indefinately to Eloy Detention Center. There I was pressured to sign a paper so I can be there for the next 90 days. But i faught and pled with my deportation officer. I told him my story and he believed me; he gave me a bond. My case is currently pending, have court October 22, 2014. I don't have a lawyer yet due to my lack of financial funds."

Juana is in debt to her community, at this moment she is a member of the Arizona Original Dreamers. She has faith she will defeat this big monster of deportations.
