Support the Family of Our Deported Teamster Brother Eber Garcia Vasquez

Two weeks ago, long-time Teamster Local 813 member Eber Garcia Vasquez was deported. The Teamsters are continuing to work with his attorney and advocates to expedite his Green Card application so he can return to the U.S. and be reunited with his family. But the deportation has left his family without a breadwinner. Eber had a good union job, which allowed him to provide for his wife, who was recently in a car crash, his daughter who is attending college, and the rest of his family.

To support this family, Northern Manhattan Coalition for Immigrant Rights, in partnership with the Teamsters, set up a Crowdrise fundraising page. Please donate if you can (every little bit helps!) and please share the link with friends and on social media. Thank you for standing with Teamsters Joint Council 16 as the labor movement fought Eber’s deportation, and for continuing to stand with his family.
