Just a few months ago, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents separated four-year-old Tayler from his father Manolo in Los Angeles. After arresting Tayler, who was with his aunt attending a routine ICE interview, ICE transferred the 4-year old child alone to a facility for detained immigrant children. Before that, Manolo and Taylor fled persecution in Guatemala and had been living in Southern California with ICE’s permission.

Here's a very sad and troubling short video of Tayler's first telephone call with his dad after they were separated by ICE: Warning - this is a very sad video. LINK

The forced separation caused Tayler to suffer extreme trauma, agony, and anguish. We agreed to represent Manolo and Taylor pro bono. Ten days later we won Tayler's release and reunification with his father.
After the incredibly traumatic experience of being separated from each other, Manolo and Tayler were barely surviving, living in a converted garage. This past weekend their room caught on fire and destroyed everything they owned, their clothes, Tayler’s toys, and their few other possessions, including their immigration documents. Manolo was sent to the hospital as he sustained burns while trying to extinguish the fire. They now find themselves homeless and with no belongings while they wait to find out if they will be granted asylum in this country.

We're organizing a GoFundMe fundraiser to cover basic expenses for Tayler and his father as they recover from this horrific accident. All donations will be given directly to Manolo so he and his son can have a roof over their heads and keep themselves above water.


PLEASE DONATE ANYTHING YOU CAN TO HELP THIS BEAUTIFUL CHILD AND HIS LOVING FATHER. PLEASE ALSO SHARE THIS EMAIL OR THE LINK TO THE GOFUNDME CAMPAIGN ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND BY EMAIL TO YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. YOU CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE TO THIS CHILD.

Best wishes,
