For over a year, Jose Adolfo Zaldana has waited in detention while his family and other members of his church have fought to save his life. If he is deported back to El Salvador, the gangs that beat him for not cooperating would surely kill him the way they have already killed many of his childhood friends. Rebecca Adducci, the director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) could stop his deportation and save his life, but despite repeated requests for prosecutorial discretion and nearly a thousand petition signatures, she has not yet shown any sign that she will. So, on Wednesday June 10th, we will begin to pray with our feet. We will hold a prayer vigil at Jose's home church of the Shrine of the Little Flower in Royal Oak then begin a 2 day, 17 mile pilgrimage down Woodward Ave. to ICE headquarters on Jefferson. There will be frequent stops at many of the churches along the way and a sleep over at Central United Methodist church at the end of the first leg of the journey. Please join us. You can go the distance, jump in for a mile or two, pray with us at any of the churches or be there when we reach our destination and add your voice to the chorus crying for justice.
