As of April 28 2015, Nan-Hui is now in the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
In July 2014, ICE and Customs and Border Protections (CBP) issued an immigration hold on Nan-Hui as soon as she was taken into Yolo County. Because she could not be deported while under Yolo County custody, she was apprehended by ICE immediately upon release from Yolo County Jail due to the immigration hold. She is currently being held at Yuba County Jail. She will be processed by Sacramento ICE 4/29, and then either continue to be detained at Yuba County Jail, or be released.
Despite of months of nationwide pressure, ICE has failed to respond appropriately.
Join us in demanding her release from detention!
1. FLOOD THEIR PHONES
UPDATED 4/29/15: Nan-Hui Jo was taken into custody by ICE immediately following her sentencing hearing and release from Yolo County Jail. She is being processed by ICE’s Sacramento field office to make a decision about whether or not to detain her. She has already spent one night in Yuba County Jail. Nan-Hui has immigration applications pending and yet ICE seems to have the intention of holding her at a detention facility regardless. Call Sacramento ICE Officer Coughlin and tell her office to release Nan-Hui immediately! Please continue to call the San Francisco ICE office as well as San Francisco CBP.
