THE STORY:

#FreeMartha, Honduran Mother Survivor of Domestic Violence and Asylum Seeker, currently detained in Adelanto Detention Center! Martha Nohelia Caceres Benitez (A#: 208-598-136) is a domestic violence survivor, and refugee from ongoing violence and femicides in her native Honduras. She migrated to the United States to escape this violence, and has no family in the United States to support her. Martha worked as a field worker/farm worker in Honduras, and supported her mother and children, as the sole breadwinner of her family. She’s a mother of three children, 9 year-old David, and 5 year-old twin sisters Ilse and Bersy. Martha does not have legal representation, and despite going through her asylum process and credible fear interview on her own, she's awaiting for her asylum case decision while in detention. The judge assigned her a bond of $3,500 in order to release her, and she has no means to pay for it. Martha has no prior convictions, and is a refugee. We are asking ICE and DHS for a lower bond, and another extension. Martha does have court on Tuesday, May 24th, and she  might be transferred to another detetion center or deported altogether, and for that reason more than ever we need YOUR SUPPORT. We need YOUR SUPPORT to raise funds to ensure Martha is released from detention, and granted her asylum case. As members of the community, we hope to cover her bond to help Martha, despite our limited financial resources, as we are her only support and network in the United States. Asylum seekers and survivors of domestic violence should not be deported, should be granted administrative relief, such as Temporary Protective Status (TPS), and immediate release from detention and deportation. For this reason, we ask for your support by donating whatever you can, and sharing the link with your contacts. Thank you on Martha’s behalf.
