Maribel Trujillo-Diaz case reopened

In 2017, The Sixth Circuit Court in Cincinnati made the decision on April 11, 2017 to deny the request of Maribel Trujillo Diaz which cleared the way for her deportation to Mexico.

On January 17, 2018, a Federal Appeals Court has ordered the case to be re-opened.

Today’s comment from Tony Stieritz of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Social Action Office

After so many months of unwarranted separation from her beloved family, we are thrilled that the Court has provided this window of possibility again for Maribel. We’ve been embracing Maribel from afar with our prayers and her family nearby with our support. Now, this decision gives us a glimmer of hope that, someday soon, this family could be made whole again. We reiterate our plea for mercy for Maribel, urging the Administration to consider her asylum case as well as the will of the community who wants to see Maribel’s family reunited.

The Catholic Telegraph will be updating this story as information is received.
