Tania Romero's Son Fights To Halt Her Deportation

Tania Romero, an undocumented mother from Honduras and survivor of stage IV cancer, is fighting to remain in the United States with her four children.

Two months ago, Romero was imprisoned by Immigration and Customs Enforcement at the privately-owned Irwin County Detention Center in Georgia, interrupting her life-saving medical treatments.

In mid-August, Romero was pulled over for a minor traffic infraction and arrested for not having a driver’s license. Tania Romero’s attorney requested a stay of deportation on humanitarian grounds because of her fragile health, but it was denied in September.

Her son, Cristian Padilla Romero, is organizing against her deportation, with a petition demanding his mother’s release with over 30,000 signatures.
