Save a St. Luke’s Member from Deportation

Save a St. Luke’s Member from Deportation

There is a high likelihood that Constantin, whose wife and seven children attend St. Luke’s, will be deported this Friday from Dulles airport outside Washington, DC. If he returns to his home country, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, he fears he will be murdered for his political opposition to the ruling party.
Here's how you can stop his deportation:
  • Join us for a press conference this Thursday (Feb 28, TOMORROW) at noon at the Federal Building downtown (880 Front Street). 
  • Contact three San Diego congressmembers using the script provided on this page.
  • Sign this petition to the director of ICE asking to stop Constantin's deportation while appeals can be reviewed in court.
  • Make a financial gift to help his family, whose asylum cases are still under review.
Contacting the offices of our local congresspeople ensures Constantin’s situation stays high on their agendas.  They can demand that ICE exercise its wide discretion in prioritizing deportations to delay Constantin's order while his case can be pursued in court. 

Please pray for Constantin and his family, and all those across the country caring for them during this heartwrenching time.

God's peace and justice,
