Justin Baldoni Shares Joyous News: Maria Isabel Bueso Not Being Deported
The real world may not have superheroes like Batman or Superman. But it does have celebrities like Justin Baldoni actively fighting for social justice. The recent mission Baldoni set out to do was raise awareness of an immigrant by the name of Maria Isabel Bueso. She was living in America to participate in a medical research study for her rare genetic disorder.
Isabel Was Facing Deportation
She was able to live here via a deferred action program. Sadly, Trump ended this program abruptly after coming into power. There was a fear of Maria being deported. However, Isabel testified to the Congress and explained how she could die if she was deported. The medical treatment she needs to continue living isn’t available in her home country Guatemala. Many celebrities raised awareness of the issue online using the #SaveIsabel hashtag. Justin Baldoni constantly updated his followers on the status of Isabel’s case.
