  • Please help this is urgent!

    I need help because my guardians are being highly unreasonable and are sending me back to the Philippines. I am a registered U.S. citizen and I am wondering if they can even do this. I am 17 and attend high school. I am currently at a different location because I just ran away from home. If I go back home they will most likely send me back without second thought. I need help to know how to combat this situation, because I atleast want a future. I don't want to stop school and go back to the Philippines. I would rather complete school here so I can have a future and a chance of life when I am an adult. This is urgent and will probably be found very soon so please respond ASAP!

    Thank you for reaching out to us for help. It sounds like you are in a very difficult situation and need some help. You said that your guardians are trying to send you back to the Philippines and that you ran away because you do not want to go back. It is understandable why you would be scared and stressed out right now. If you would like to talk to somebody about your situation, give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY. Our 24 hour hotline is here to support you in any way that we can, and it might be easier for us to help you find resources if we knew the specifics of your situation. Another resource that might be helpful for you is the Family Support Network Hotline for families that are facing separation due to deportation. Their number is 1-855-435-7693.
