Stand with Jacob Leonce!

Friday, February 2, 8am, Immigration & Customs Enforcement Office, 1000 District Ave, Burlington

Longtime Haverhill resident Jacob Leonce has been ordered to appear and surrender to ICE for deportation back to St. Lucia. Jacob originally came to the US on a legal visa and has spent years trying to regularize his legal status so that he can remain here with his children, both of whom are US citizens and know no other home. Join us for a nonviolent vigil in solidarity with Jacob and his family. Bring candles, signs, and donations you would like to make to the Leonce family. Spread the word!

Please RSVP to or 978-686-0650)

If you can’t attend, call ICE regional director Christopher Cronen at 781-359-7500 and ask (firmly and respectfully) that ICE use its prosecutorial discretion to grant Jacob a stay of removal.
