The Petition

To President Obama & Peter Vincent, Office of General Counsel:

We, the undersigned, ask for the immediate release of the DREAM 9, the undocumented youth who were detained attempting to come home through the Nogales port of entry on July 22nd, 2013. All members of the DREAM 9 have lived in the United States since they were children, consider the U.S. to be their home, and would otherwise qualify for the DREAM Act.

The DREAM 9 includes: Lulu Martinez, A# 204-785-765, Lizbeth Mateo, A# 087-757-237, Marco Saavedra, A# 200-203-132, Ceferino Santiago A# 205-991-103, Maria Peniche, A# 205-935-698, Luis Leon, A# 205-642-742 Adriana Gil Diaz, A# 205-735-699, Claudia Amaro, A# 098-725-748, and Mario Felix, A# 205-935-700.

Each courageous member of the DREAM 9 deserves to be admitted to the U.S. through humanitarian parole. One young person was the valedictorian at her high school graduation, another was a track star, and yet another was a Model United Nations Ambassador. One young person is scheduled to begin law school on August 12th, and another volunteered for the City of Wichita translating public records forms. Several members of the DREAM 9 have received academic scholarships, most have spent time volunteering in schools and churches, and all have distinguished themselves as future leaders in their communities.

We firmly believe that all nine young people should be released immediately from the Eloy Detention Center, where they have been held since they were detained on July 22nd. All members of the DREAM 9 presented themselves to border patrol in order to come home, and they deserve to be allowed to do so.

We support the DREAM 9 and ask that your administration take immediate action to bring them home.
