For nearly 13 years, Javier, now 16, called Jacksonville, Florida home. In 2011 his whole family had to move back to Mexico to care for his sick grandma. For almost 2-years now Javier has been living in Michoacán, Mexico. The violence is bad, his family fears for his life, it's time to BringJavierHome!

Make a call & ask ICE to grant permission for Javier to come home. Our goal today is 200 calls!

DC ICE @ 202-732-3000

Sample script: “Hi, I am calling to ask ICE to grant humanitarian parole to Javier Galvan, who grew up in Florida but returned to Mexico to meet his dying grandmother. I think Dreamers like Javier should be allowed to come home. He has been living under constant threats. Please grant him humanitarian parole immediately!"

The Petition

To John Sandweg, Acting Director of ICE:

I write to ask that you grant humanitarian parole to Javier Galvan, and allow for him to come home to Florida. Javier is one of many Dreamers who was raised here in the United States, yet was forced to go back to his birth country. Javier is now ready to come home, I urge you to grant his parole request allowing him to do so.

Javier, now 16, was brought to the United States when he was just 3-years old. He lived in Florida until the age of 14, when his family decided to return to Mexico to care for his sick grandmother. Leaving was not an easy decision, but the fact that Javier had never even met his grandmother made it easy; he knew that if they were to stay he would probably never meet her.

Javier left, not knowing when he’d be allowed to come back home. “It has been two years and I still don’t feel at home I was unable to keep going to school because of the language barrier. There’s always attacks in the city and threatening phone calls. I have been robbed several times and in school I was beaten down for being "different” I feel very unsafe and uncomfortable. If I go back to Florida not only will I feel like I’m back home but I will finish school with good grades and study to become a dentist or something in the field of medicine. That is my dream.”

Michoacán is well known for its violence; being unique in that many of the communities here are organized to fight back against cartels, violence is often escalated. I urge you to grant Javier Galvan’s request for parole and allow for him to come home. Florida is where Javier belongs.
