This is America's Biggest Threat

This is Camila, she's a Florida college student who is currently sitting in jail for a crime she did not commit and the government knows it. Worse than sitting in jail for something she didn't do, she will most likely be deported. She will never see her home, friends, or the country she calls home EVER AGAIN.

We can stand there and cry and pray for people who lose their homes in a disaster. What if you not only lost your home but everyone and everything you ever knew and could never see them again? This is what the U.S. government is doing to this innocent girl.

Our tax dollars are spent ruining this poor girl's life while dangerous criminals roam the country because of a lack of resources. Yet they seemed to find the money to arrest and jail this girl for something she didn't do.

If you haven't already, sign the DREAM Act petition which would spare kids like Camila.

Thank you so much for posting this. This article is the kind of support we're looking for! I'm her friend, Ana Rodriguez, working closely with other friends in trying to keep her here, where she belongs. With your permission, I would like to post this on our facebook group:

Camila has been in this country since she was 5 years old. It is completely unfair to send her to a country she does not know and hasn't seen in 14 years. She is American in every sense of the word, and I truly hope she is able to stay in the country until the DREAM Act passes.

While our tax dollars should be spent on more important things, they are being used to send an innocent girl back to a country she doesn't know. Money well spent? I don't think so.

This country's priorities are so screwed up. But you and I know this.

She was deported back in quite a rush by the ICE on Friday. What a loss to America.

Send her back where she came from. Whatever is going to happen to this country if we let a bunch of inteligent, educated [and cat loving :)]people stay here? That keeps up and before you know it us red-neck bigots won't have a place to stand.
