Tell President Obama: Don't Deport Antonio
Antonio Vanegas, usually soft-spoken, finally had enough. After getting paid below minimum wage for two years in a federally owned building, he participated in a one-day strike with hundreds of others. Antonio demanded that President Obama pay him and two million others like him a living wage, the minimum someone needs to earn to meet their basic needs. How did the Obama administration respond? By putting Antonio into deportation proceedings.
We've stopped deportations before and we need to do it again, now. We need at least 15,000 people to shame the Obama administration into stopping deportation proceedings against Antonio. Can you sign and share to help us get here?
