On the morning of May 11, Jonatan Palacios was arrested by ICE agents in front of his Haverford apartment. Originally from Honduras, one of the most violent and dangerous countries in the Western Hemisphere, Jonatan came to the U.S. as an unaccompanied minor when he was 16 years old. He is a valued member of the community, a loving husband, and a straight-A student at Delaware Community College who was ripped from his family and life months after he had begun the process of becoming a legal citizen in the United States.
Please join us to show solidarity, support, and prayer for Jonaton and his wife, Lillie, who was with him when he was taken away. This type of senseless targeting of innocent people is happening in communities like ours across the country. Help us send a message that it will not be tolerated in our community.
NOTE: Please meet at the Sharpe Park and Bird Sanctuary at 405 Montgomery Ave, Haverford, PA 19041; vigil will start at 5:15 across the street at the SEPTA Parking Lot on Cheswold Rd in Haverford.
Please wear blue, Jonaton’s favorite color, and bring signs with messages of support. All are welcome.
