Panda Express 11 Update

Eleven undocumented employees of a Tucson , Arizona restaurant, Panda Express, were arrested in 2008. One of them was Marlen Moreno, who was due to be deported on Aug. 9, 2010. Janet Napolitano granted deferred action on behalf of Marlen for one year, and renewable after one year. Why did this happen? Thousands of us signed individual petitions, thousands of phone calls were made and thousands of emails sent. 50 organizations signed on Marlen's behalf, including National Council of La Raza and the National Immigration Lawyers Association. Intervening on her behalf were Rep.Gutierrez, Sen. Reid, Sen. Shumer, and Sen. Durbin.
