From the family -"I still cannot accept that you are gone my love. We still had a lot of dreams we needed to come to fruition. They took you from us but i will now fight so that no other family has a loved one torn away from them as they tore you away from us." -Yanin Barajas Wife
"It is an irreparable loss of an exemplary son without vices who loved to work. His sisters Sonia and Denise as well as his Father Alfredo Barajas are unconsoled by the loss of their loved one. We are angry at the way he was taken from us and by the slow moving and process that the police has had so far in our case. Join our cause in the fight for justice for my son."- Policronia islas – Mother
"The family in this case is going through a tough grieving process. They have lost the main bread winner int he family who is a US Citizen and now this Mexican Family is left to fend for themselves. One of Sajid’s children is disabled and they relied on his work here in the US for his treatment and care. We want to ask the community that if they saw something please come forward and help this family in need. As for the perpetrator who did this we hope that you find it in your conscious to turn yourself in and pay for the crime that you commited " – Cesar Espinosa FIEL Executive Director
