COMMUNITY INITIATIVES FOR VISITING IMMIGRANTS IN CONFINEMENT wrote -Dembo is a 39 year old man from The Gambia that has been in ICE detention for nearly a year. He has lived in the United States for fifteen years and is the father of two children who are U.S. citizens. His oldest son is currently in dependency proceedings. Dembo is eager to get out of detention so that he can care for his son, and avoid having his son go into foster care or the care of non-family members. He currently has pending asylum and cancellation of removal applications with the Court. His next hearing is on August 17, 2017, and his release before then will also help him better prepare his complicated legal case. Please help Dembo reunite with his children and fight his case!
