Wish me luck. I'm trying to keep a patient of mine from being deported.

I have visited with this patient for six years now. He's in his late sixties. He ran track and field for his country in the 1976 Olympics ( I won't say which country; a trip to the almanac could reveal his name.) and he's been homeless for about the last ten years. He's not a US citizen, and now the Trump government wants to deport him.

I wrote a letter just now disapproving him for overseas travel based on his medical condition. I'm hoping they will delay or cancel his deportation as a result. Be thinking good thoughts for my patient.

I'm sure you've got it, but let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

9. Thank you.

I just wrote a letter. It's not like I'm standing in front of tanks. If ICE shows up at the door, I'll probably stand in front of them. But this will probably be played out in the courts.

with immigration issues. NW Justice Project is one to consider.

on the news. It's helped sometimes.

If the people in charge of looking like someone is in charge won't listen to the advice of licensed medical providers, then we're all fucked...

Maybe after Trump's bs spew on sanctuary cities, Seattle will step up like Portland ME did.



Thank you for fighting for humanity.

26. Seattle has made it pretty clear that they intend to be a sanctuary city.

Tacoma, near where I live, is also pretty welcoming to immigrants and those seeking asylum. It's only the Feds that we have to worry about.

27. I hope the city, either Tacoma or Seattle

 

can step in and help you, that is what I was what I was suggesting. Vaguely, I guess. I just hope they can be bolder now.

28. Yet another cruel consequence of dump & rethugs - is there any way to get media involved

in exposing this? I know you have to keep patient identity confidential...

Will be thinking good thoughts for your patient. Much gratitude to you for taking action to try to ameliorate another dire situation concocted by dump et. al.
