1. What did he do?
Pablo didn't do anything wrong/different. His deportation case has been going on for more than a year and when he went to his regular court date recently, they took away his bond and put him in custody again.
2. Ok, why do they want to deport him?
Pablo got himself in trouble back when he was 18. He served his probation and everything but this incident made him "deportable." Deportations have reached a record high in the Obama administration.
3. Is he an alien?
Pablo arrived here at 9 years old and is a legal permanent resident.
4. Ok, but, Pablo must just be a troublemaker, right?
Quite the contrary. Pablo has always been an active member of his community and recently he helped open a bike shop in Greenpoint, BK. He has been working with the community to make improvements, as shown by several articles written about him.
5. Whatever, I love Pablo. How can I help?
We still need money for legal fees and detainment expenses (attend the benefit!), and most of all he would like letters and pictures no bigger than 8x10!
