Protest at Oakland hospital seeks to reverse deportation of nurse and husband
sfgate.com
Oakland nurse Maria Mendoza-Sanchez didn’t know what to expect, but as she approached Highland Hospital at midday Monday she saw a growing crowd of familiar and unfamiliar faces — doctors, fellow nurses at the facility, union members and protesters — who came out to rally against her impending deportation. Barring a last-minute reprieve, Mendoza-Sanchez and her husband, who do not have legal status, will fly to their native Mexico on Tuesday with their 12-year-old son, who is a citizen by birth, to start a new life after more than two decades in the U.S. They will leave behind three older daughters, all of whom have status. The crowd at Highland, which quickly numbered in the hundreds, came to speak out against the action by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, which under President Trump has increasingly sought to deport immigrants, including those with long-standing ties to the country and no criminal records like Mendoza-Sanchez and her husband, truck driver Eusebio Sanchez. A spokeswoman for ICE defended the deportation order last week, saying the family’s case had gone through a lengthy review in immigration courts and that “neither of these individuals has a legal basis to remain in the U.S.” Delvecchio Finley, chief executive of Alameda Health System, which operates Highland Hospital, told the crowd that Mendoza-Sanchez had been a “stellar employee” in her two years at the facility. After immigration officials said in May that the couple had three months to arrange their travel to Mexico, they decided the best option was to leave behind their three daughters, who are 16, 21, and 23. The two younger daughters are U.S. citizens, while the older daughter, Vianney, is protected by the government’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program. The family’s Los Angeles-based attorney, Carl Shusterman, said the case symbolized President Trump’s shift in immigration priorities — namely, that nearly all illegal immigrants are now eligible for deportation. “As a former (Immigration and Naturalization Service) prosecutor, I am deeply saddened to see a family with three U.S. citizen children and no criminal record being targeted for deportation,” he said. The California Democrat said she would introduce a private bill in September to help the family gain permanent residence.
