Please Help

Anyone who's ever met me knows how passionate I am about immigration laws, specifically that it is inanely hard for people to go with the system and do things the legal way and how easy it is for people who want to cheat and move to other countries illegally. Especially in the case where someone moves for love, and I have a lot of friends who are in or have been in that boat, some very recently, and have met nothing but difficulties and financial hardship because the country of their choice acts like "hey, we don't want you here, oh and we don't care that you're married/in a relationship, we'll rip you from your loved ones in the name of the law" while waving system cheaters on with a grin and a free bucket of benefits.

This is one of those situations where someone I know is going through a very hard time with immigration, and unless she can come up with the immigration lawyer fees (despite doing everything in her power already), she still might be deported and sent away from her husband back to her country of origin. She is obeying the law, going with the system, but of course, the system doesn't treat you like people and certainly doesn't care if you're married.

I know it's the holidays and people are saving money or are simply poor college folks like myself, but since this is an issue I am very passionate about and especially since there is a familiar face attached with it, I would like to ask that if you can spare even just a dollar, to help this girl. Some of you might know her as Earwig on DA, or Sara. She's friends with some of my friends and a very talented artist. Either way, I donated what little I could spare because I know that some day, what with my long distance relationship, I very well may be in the same boat as she, and some of you folks have already been in. It's not fun.

Anyways, if you could, please help. Every little bit helps. I'd hate to see her deported just because she couldn't afford the 5K in lawyers fees. It's a ridiculous system that needs to be fixed.

Here's a donate button with a link to her paypal.

Thank you everyone.
