From Atana's wife Mayia: 

Dear Friend, 

I just created a petition entitled Tell ICE: Stop the deportation of Atanas Entchev and family , because I deeply believe we should be allowed to stay in U.S. which is our home. 

I'm trying to collect 1000 signatures, and I could really use your help. 

To read more about what I'm trying to do and to sign my petition, click here:

Thank you very much in advance, you help is greatly appreciated by our family.

Mayia Entcheva

Thanks from her and from the rest of our community who misses him!
