Los Angeles, California - Ulises Guerrero, 33, originally from Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico is facing deportation, if an immigration judge issues a final order for his removal by next week on September 26, La Opinion reported. Guerrero came to the U.S. as a tourist in 2002 and immediately began to work. In 2008, Guerrero while working at Micro Solutions Enterprises in Van Nuys was taken into custody by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement after they raided the company and arrested 138 undocumented workers including Guerrero who didn't have authorization to work and over stayed his tourist visa.
Guerrero is married to Sandra Zamorano and has five children that were born in the U.S., with the youngest, Isaac being just a month old.
Community members from San Fernando, Panorama City, Ventura, Oxnard, Los Angeles, Lynwood and the organization Hermandad Mexicana Transnacional have launched a letter writing campaign to draw President Obama's attention to Guerrero's deportation case. Guerrero wants to remain in the country.
Community organizations in Los Angeles will hold a march on September 22 for immigration reform and are calling for Obama to halt deportations. At least 1,400 undocumented immigrants are deported daily leaving more than 400,000 families without a mother or father as the main income wage earners annually.
