#BehindTheScenes with @NancyPelosi and Isabel Bueso as we discussed Isabel’s story, the cruelty of the Trump Administration’s decision to end , #medicaldeferredactionand our support and determination to #SaveIsabelnd the other families impacted by this policy.
Doctor of Isabel Bueso writing in WaPo — “Immigrants help us find treatments for rare diseases. We owe them for that.”
@realDonaldTrump Please extend Isabel Bueso’s Medical Deferred Action status. She has been in the US legally for 16 years & will die without her medication. She came here under a clinical trial to help herself and others. We must #SaveIsabel
Due to an abrupt change in policy last week, Isabel Bueso and her family have been given just 33 days to leave the country, despite living here for 16 years, as legal, tax-paying residents.
Live now on @maddow : Isabel Bueso'>Maria Isabel Bueso, who just testified before Congress about the Trump administration’s move to deport critically ill immigrants. Bueso came from Guatemala as a child to participate in a study that led to a life-saving treatment for her rare disease.
Maria Isabel Bueso’s story inspired countless Americans to speak out for immigrants like herself who benefit from medically deferred action, a humanitarian initiative that is literally life-saving. It was my pleasure to welcome her to the U.S. Capitol today.
During an @OversightDems hearing today, I asked Isabel Bueso what her reaction was when she first received the a heartless form letter from USCIS on August 13th giving her 33 days to leave the country. Her response is powerful. #SaveIsabel
“I have been feeling super scared and overwhelmed," said Isabel Bueso'>Maria Isabel Bueso, who came to the U.S. as a child for treatment of a rare genetic disease. "The treatment that I receive keeps me alive.” She must soon leave the country or face deportation.
The Trump Administration has effectively handed Concord resident, Isabel Bueso a death sentence. We will not stand for this & are fighting along side Isabel & her family. @maddow has more on this remarkable young woman & the contributions she brings to our community. #SaveIsabel
