Bring Back Elvin

Our Story

elvin 1My name is Margaret Soto (Peggy). I was raised as a Catholic. Went to a catholic school. I graduated school for Medical Assisting in 1999. I have 4 boys and 1 granddaughter. My husband is from Honduras. In 2004 he was caught here at his job site undocumented only…nothing more. He did about 2 months in a maximum security prison while we collected the money to pay his bond. At the time I was pregnant with our 2nd son. Our first son was 3. My husband was allowed to return home with us until the next court date.
Within the next few months, I had complications with my pregnancy and was put into the hospital for 2 months. Then the doctors took our baby to the emergency room for a  C section. He was 3 months early, and weighing 3 pounds. He was good thank god. Only just a few minor problems. Well after the maximum allowed time given to my husband, he had to leave. He voluntarily deported when our youngest was 5 months old.

We were told he could return in 6 to 9 months since we were married and he was my husband. We were mislead, lied to. We were not told about app fees, needing a sponsor etc.. and that I would have to pay on my own being a single mother while he was gone. Today is 3/23/13 and it is 7 1/2 years later. We are still not with daddy and my husband. He is a good man. He currently is a teacher in Honduras, a kid at heart. He loves being outside, at parks, fishing, nature walking, swimming. Every Sunday we were at a different park and then we would go out to eat.  He is a good father and a hard worker.

I have just recently found a sponsor but I am struggling with the rest of the application fees being a single mother. With all the talk of immigration laws being changed finally, I want to make sure we are not forgotten. All the families who are all ready separated. My husband could have ran after being caught, like so many do, but we chose to do it the right way. So he went back home thinking he would be able to return in 6 to 9 months. Yeah right. I am only asking that he can return back to us to finish the immigration process. please take a minute to sign my petition.

    Petition, it won’t help you cause! WHAT YOU NEED IS MONEY!! You should ask all those like Jose Antonio Vargas and his supproters to donate money so you could pay the fees for all immgration petitions.and bring your husband! Hopefully VARGAS and his supporters are not all talk! Also if your husband is agood person.he should have no problem coming back!!

  3. PEGGY, THIS IS ONE REASON I WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT FOR ALL MY UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS WHO ARE BEING SCAPEGOATED FOR AmeriKKKa’s SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC ILLS! THIS IS THE EXACT MINDSET THAT ADOLF HITLER HAD DURING HIS “DER JUDEN” (“THE JEWS”) DEPORTATION PROGRAM…, AND THOSE WERE THE “LUCKY” ONES! WE ALL KNOW THE REST OF NAZI GERMANY’S HISTORY…, RIGHT?!
    WHO IS BEHIND THIS DE JURE (“LEGAL”) ETHNIC CLEANSING? …THE CONGRESSIONAL GOP (GRAND OLE PENDEJOS) REPUBLICSKKKUMBAG PARTY, A FEW BLUE DOG DIXIECRATS (“democrats”) AND THEIR RACIST XENOPHOBE ADHERENTS!
    HOWEVER, NOT ALL UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS ARE BROWNS EITHER! I’M ALSO INCLUDING ALL THOSE FROM DIFFERENT CONTINENTS, INCLUDING OUR NORTHERN IRELAND BRETHREN TOO!.
    HAS WHITE RACIST AmeriKKKans FORGOTTEN THAT THEIR OWN ANCESTORS INVADED THIS LAND…, ILLEGALLY AS WELL?! HELLOOOOO….?!

  4. American Families United (AFU). Reunite Families. Stop tearing families apart!!
