Here’s a sample script to use:
“Hello, my name is _______. I’m calling to ask ICE to stop the deportation of Hilda Ramirez, #A202072764 and her son, Ivan, #A202072765. Hilda is a Guatemalan woman and an asylum seeker who fled for her life and has lived in the U.S. for two years. She currently is in sanctuary at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Austin, Texas, where Hilda has many friends that support her and where her son, Ivan, attends school. She is anxious to be able to live outside of the church without fear of being deported. Hilda very much wants to provide a good home for her son in the U.S. Please allow Hilda and her Ivan, her son, to stay. I am a member of Austin Tan Cerca de la Frontera/Austin So Close to the Border”.
