Monsy Alvarado of the RECORD published a long article on Sunday, October 19, 2014, about our friends Gloria Chocoj and Jose Estrada Lopez. Mr. Estrada is being held by immigration officials at the ICE detention center at Elizabeth. His wife Gloria is struggling to hold on to their home and care for their three American-born children. The local Guatemalan community, with CoFiA’s support, is holding a fund-raiser for the family in November. More information later. Donations could be sent made out to the Community of Friends in Action, Inc., with “Jose Estrada fund”on the memo line.
