BREAKING: Uriel Alberto Has Been Released From Wake County Jail

Major victory for fight against deportations; new phase of fight begins

 RALEIGH—Uriel Alberto has been released from Wake County Jail. His release marks an incredible victory for the immigrant community, activists, and people of conscience as they mobilize to fight against deportations.

At the time of this release, 2,558 people have signed the online petition for his release. The petitions, a calling campaign, a solidarity hunger strike, multiple vigils, and donations from the public to his bond fund were able to secure his release.

Alberto will continue to be in deportation proceedings, but bringing him home is an important first step and an important first victory. The campaign for his release will now shift toward fighting his deportation.

The NC DREAM Team and El Cambio are grateful for everyone who aided in the campaign to secure his release.
