Marlon C. Saucedo
Marlon C. Saucedo
Most recently, Marlon has been working with the University Leadership Initiative (ULI) at the University of Texas in organizing actions against the incarceration of immigrants and has participated in Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) clinics. Marlon has also been working in ULI's TX Tuition Equity campaign, which advocates against recently introduced state bills that would revoke in-state tuition for undocumented Texan students.

 

Originally from Monterrey, Mexico, Marlon is currently a Journalist and Radio/Television/Film student at the University of Texas in Austin. As an undocumented student, Marlon has first-hand experience of the injustice of the immigration and detention systems.

 

"Receiving the opportunity to weather away the systems that once brought heavy trauma to my humble family is the closest thing to what I would call redemption,” Marlon said. “Not just my own redemption, but that of all those in the past, present and future, afflicted by the injustice created by misguided leadership within this country."

Hi Miguel,

Every facility has different rules about depositing commisary. The phone number for East Hidalgo is 956-262-4511. I would recommend calling them to ask the rules.

Good luck,
