Selvin Arevalo came to Portland, Maine from Guatemala eleven years ago when
he was 14-years-old to study and to work in order to help his family. Selvin
flourished in the United States— He is a leader in his church as a youth
leader and treasurer. He is a musician who plays several instruments and a
singer in his church. He is studying to receive a high school diploma and
wants to enroll in college to study computer science. Selvin is an exemplary
member of our Portland community.

Recently Selvin was detained a month before his graduation and enrolling in
college! He was detained and held at the Cumberland County jail for seven
long months. His community organized around him and got him released from
detention.

This is urgent—*Selvin was served an order of Deportation for Dec. 18, 2010.
Just like we’ve stopped numerous deportations of immigrant undocumented
students, we can stop his! We need to stop Selvin’s deportation and keep him
home in Portland!*
