I, Lombardo Villagran Zelaya, hereby declare the following. I declare under penalty of perjury that the following is true and correct to the best of my knowledge. My name is Lombardo Villagran Zelaya. I was born in Guatemala on February 22, 1985. My current address is 847 Pine Rd. Ocala Fl. 34472.
I made the decision to come to the United States because I lived together with my family under a very fast growing neighborhood that was in the middle of murders, kidnapping and drug trafficking for many years. I was put to live to see confrontations armed day by day, and to see how the delinquency took the lives of innocent friends. To see how they took the lives of a person for a few cents. Live hating to see what was happening in my surroundings and how the authorities did absolutely nothing. It hurt me to see my mother cry that nothing would happen to us. That is why I made the decision to come to the United States.
When I came to the United States I was surprised in the peace that was in the neighborhood. I found a job in a factory that processed food. I the months that I was working there, were of blessing now that they made me feel useful. People filled me up with a lot of hope to have a better life. I realized that there was no comparison in how I lived n my country, in wish I shared with my family every time I talked to them over the phone. After the months passed by, I made the decision to move with some friends to Atlanta, GA. In wish they helped me reestablish myself there.
While in Georgia I met Beatriz in wish now is my wife. We lived in Canton GA and had a beautiful son. The first year of our marriage we began to assist a local church where we helped the community and friends. Our friends took us as their family and helped us in many ways too.
On May 23, 2009, I was arrested because I was trying to sell a vehicle to my neighbor and was parked in the road. I was demonstrating him the car while an officer came and arrested me for no license. My wife was pregnant at that time and was trying my best to provide to our family, but this just made it very inconvenient.
There were times when I wanted to feel useful and those friends knew I was very handy. I accepted their offers to cut their grass, fix doors, or any small jobs. There were times that I needed to drive to provide to my home. On 8/14/2012 I eventually was arrested for not having a license and was no longer able to drive and find another way to provide for my family.
I knew in what situation my family was, but to make the decision to drive again to help out was very difficult to make. In wish it made me to make my third traffic violation. This happened on 4/20/2013. After this I was given a probation order of 11 months and 30 days, in wish this put me and my family in a very difficult situation. I learned that there is a law to obey and that the errors come with consequences; that not only affects oneself but also my children and my marriage. I declare that since mu punishment, I have not driven again.
I apologize and as for forgiveness for the faults that I committed, and I was for the government of the United State to forgive me and give me a new opportunity. The forgiveness means a lot to me and my family, now that if it were to be denied; it would be impossible to see my children and wife. I would not be financially stable to travel.
It would be physiologically difficult for my wife and kids to try to adapt themselves to a country that is not theirs. My children would not be able to assist the schools in my country because of the language barrier and the education level would not be the same. Financially I would not be able to afford a better education to my children, now that they have their own educational goals. To become good professionals in their country, also that they do not know how to read or write Spanish and they only recognize the United States as their country. This would change their lives in a negative way if I would transfer them to my country not that they would not have the same level of life such like in a home and educationally. They have never been to my country. It would be even difficult to take them to a doctor visit without any medical insurance of my country of something were to happen. I would not have the funds or be capable to pay the medical bills because of that salary level that exists in my country. They would not feel comfortable to visit a doctor because they would not be able to communicate with the doctor. This would be bad and uncomfortable.
Thanks to my wife, my children have medical insurance thru her job. This would be impossible for me in my country because I would not have any of those benefits. The ability to access medications if anything were to happen would be unforgivable.
If I were to return to my country by force, it would be very difficult to overcome my situation in my life. Just to think that I would not have my family with me hurts.
I Lombardo Villagran completed 12 years of education. And now I dedicate myself to take care of my children due to the fact that I cannot have a job because I do not have a legal status on this country. When I do have an opportunity, I help out friends from my church at doing some work for them just to provide me with some funds.
If I were to live in my country I would have to live at my mother’s home that is located in 1ra Avenida 2nda Calle Colonia Sultanita 1 Lote 24 Santa Lucia Cotzumalguapa. Escuintla Guatemala. This is a home that has 4 bedrooms and would be occupied by 7 people. Also counts with schools no hospitals in this community. The nearest hospital is located 45 thru 1 hour of distance. I cannot imagine myself living there again permanently for reason that I already specified. The fear of living in a place where the impunity is quick, and health service is difficult to receive.
The unemployment is impressive. The job opportunities are slim. A place that his a high level of crime. Very difficultly I can’t imagine myself living that way. Reason to such I would like to live in the United States is because they value their principals and the security and well being of their citizens. Is a country of much opportunity and much success; like academically and the lifestyles. I would have a home worthy for my family and that in my country they would never have. I find it comfortable to facilitate my children a better education, security and a worthy life. If I were to go back to my country, my family would have to stay in the United States because this is their country and they would suffer much in my country.
If there were something that I would miss in the United States, this would be my family united like it should be.
