Lindita Todaj fled persecution in Albania in 2001, seeking asylum in the United States.
After 11 tortorous years of immigration proceedings, she now faces deportation as soon as next week back to Albania,
a country where she has no relations or support, and would almost certainly face poverty and privation.
Lindita would face these challenges alone— her husband Kanto, died in the United States in 2010, after a months-long struggle
with a deadly form of cancer. His death left the family with emotional and financial challenges.
During the past 11 years, Farmington Hills, Michigan, has become Lindita’s home where she is working and raising
her three children, all US citizens: 4 year old Pjeter, 6 year old Francesca, and 7 year old Angjela.
The family has attended two local churches, Our Lady of Albanians Catholic Church in Southfield
and Cornerstone Baptist Church in Farmington Hills.
These children have never been to Albania, do not speak fluent Albanian, and would face an uncertain future
if they were forced to leave Farmington Hills with their mother. With Kanto’s death, the whole family would
be left in dire straits.
ICE could, if they wanted to, allow Lindita a legal way to stay in the US, and continue working and raising her
Please take action today and ask ICE to use their power and save this family from deportation!
