Jennifer Martinez?s husband Jaime was deported earlier this year leaving her family separated with Jaime in Mexico and Jennifer with their four children in Manitowoc, WI. The Martinez family had also applied for prosecutorial discretion for Jaime, but were determined ineligible though he had been living in the US for a long time with his family and no criminal background. Jennifer and her children had moved to Mexico earlier this year to be with her husband, but moved back to Wisconsin because of violence in their town. She says her husband now makes about $28 a week in Mexico, making it impossible for their family to not be on public assistance to get by. ?I?m demanding [Obama], actually, to keep his promise. I mean we stood up for him, now its his time to stand up for us,? Martinez said.
