Sixty two faculty members of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) have released a letter of support for the ‘Dream 9’, including Lulu Martinez, a current UIC student and former IYJL organizer, being held at Eloy Detention Center in Arizona. Lulu Martinez intends to continue her studies upon her return. You can also read the support from 1400 graduate UIC employees for Lulu here.
[Update: It has been reported that Lulu’s credible fear interview had a positive outcome. Her, and seven others so far, are now in the process of applying for asylum. Supporters will now advocate for their release]
