Rodeo Singer Raquel Perez Arrested


These shots of Raquel are from 2009
Her many fans will remember those
fantastic performances in Mayanatlán
where she enchanted the rodeo public
with her unforgetable renditiones
of “Besame Mucho” y “Las Mañanitas”

Raquel was saying her last
good-bye to the United States.

Good-bye to friends and family in Phoenix Arizona
where she had been living and working past years.

It was early March of 2017 and just about to travel
to her home in Mexico a small village in Guerrero.

She returned a fateful overdue library book!
she was removed from the library in handcuffs
and could not even call her daughter
to tell he she could NOT pick her up!

Raquel performs at the 16th of September celebration in Taxco,

Just about everybody in Raquel’s family
has been to the United States since her own
grandfather went there many times to work
in the nineteen-fifites. And so too the father,
the uncles, the cousins, brothers and so forth,
yet also, many of the Perez Arias women have
gone to Arizona and Chicago over the years
to work in cake bakeries, factories, restaurants,
as domestic servants. All of this has been by
the normal way purchasing passage over the
border near Nogales. Raquel is the mother
of five year old, Talia, born in Phoenix.

Raquel married in Phoenix
and she was just about to return
home at the pleading invitation of her aunt and her nieces.

But no! She couldn’t just not return the library book.

She just had to return it.

Now she is is USA federal prison
and her family has not been able to see her.

They have to make an appointment
with the prison office to see her.

They could only see her
at a distance across a yard.
Like in a Dostoyevski novel
when the prisoners are leaving
for siberia, she turned around
at the last second, and even though
the family members were behind
a cyclone wire wall at a great distance
she recognized them at once, amazing!
the family members were shaken
becasue Raquel has always been a religious girl
and believer in holy miracles and it seemed to them
that she would be convinced
that her seeing and recognizing them
from so far away had to be a miracle
and so they went away with the form
they have to fill out on the internet
to obtain an interview with the prison
administration in order to see Raquel
and speak with her; meanwhile,the daughter is
cared for by aunts and her cousins in Phoenix.

You can help a great deal!

Help our campaign for Raquel to get her released
sooner, by directing some letters and postcards
to her address in the prison so her guardians know
she has people who care for her. So please, if you will only
do for us Raquel, we, ourselves, will be your great friends,
so, please, stand yourself ready until we get her address!
