To Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, John Morton; and Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano:
We, the undersigned, call on the immediate release of Alfonso Aquino Gonzalez (A# 200-617-255) from Broward Detention Center in Florida and ask that his deportation be stopped.
Alfonso was detained by immigration officials after police officers cuffed him and called immigration on him. Though he was never arrested, he was picked up by ICE in front of his wife, 8 year old daughter, and neighbors watching. Alfonso has been held at the Broward Detention Center for the past 11 months because of an incompetent attorney. Despite being a low-priority case and being married to a U.S. citizen, Alfonso could be deported any day.
Alfonso was born in Mexico but, through the years, has built a life in the United States. He is married to his U.S. citizen wife and, together, they have a 8 year old daughter named Jenelly. Alfonso’s daughter was diagnosed with autism a few years ago and Alfonso is the one who takes care of her. With the help of Alonso and her teacher, Jenelly became more social and was able to adapt to school. Jenelly is suffering emotionally and constantly asks her mom why she can’t have her dad at home and why he doesn’t take her to eat ice cream at the park like the other kids.
According to the memo issued by John Morton, Alfonso is a low-priority case and should be granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion. Alfonso is the main financial provider for his wife and daughter. Due to the stress and the toll that this process has taken on his wife and daughter, Alfonso’s wife was recently laid off and Jenelly needs more therapy. To make matters worse, they are about to get evicted from their home. Jenelly and Alfonso’s wife need him by their side to help them through this difficult moment. Alfonso should be with his family, not in a detention center.
We, the undersigned, urge you to release Alfonso Aquino Gonzalez (A# 200-617-255) from Broward Detention Center in Florida and ask that his deportation be stopped.
