Subject: Do you know anyone who may be able/willing to sponsor a Trans girl?
I hope this email finds you all well. I, alongside another community organizer, are putting together a bond packet to request a bond with the immigration court for “Brittany”. She is an immigrant from Guatemala and is currently detained in Texas. Brittany doesn’t have an attorney, so she is representing herself.
Brittany has a friend in Daly City who can house her upon release, however, the friend can’t sponsor Brittany because she doesn’t have legal status either. We had a volunteer who initially offered to sponsor Brittany but has gone MIA.
Hence, I’m reaching out to community members to ask if there is someone out there who can sponsor Brittany. I want to disclose that being a sponsor for Brittany entails giving personal info to ICE, writing a letter of support stating the sponsor will make sure she attends all her hearings, and provide tax returns to show ability to sustain Brittany. However, the sponsor won’t need to cover any of Brittany’s expenses because she will be moving in with her friend in Daly City. If bond is granted, I will help Brittany’s friend fundraise to pay the bond.
Let me know if anyone comes to mind who can help or help Brittany by spreading the word to your networks. I’m available via phone or email if any potential sponsors have additional questions before committing. Thank you so much in advance for any help you can provide!
