Two Family Members Murdered: Antonio's Life is at Risk. Don't Deport Him!
On May 24, Antonio was driving with his boss to Home Deport when they were stopped by the police. Even though Antonio was the passenger in the vehicle, the police asked for his driver's license and arrested him. He has been at Broward Transitional Center ever since.
Antonio's only hope is for Sen. Nelson / Sen. Rubio to intervene.
Senator Rubio and Nelson are the ONLY ones who can help: SIGN & Make a CALL

"Hi, I am calling to ask the Senator to take a position on Antonio Molina Barradona's (A# 205-051-713) case. Antonio's brother and cousin were murdered in El Salvador and he fears his life is at serious risk if he's sent back. Why won’t the senator take a position on his case and issue a letter of support?”
If Rubio or Nelson's Office Tells You . . .
If Rubio or Nelson's office tells you 'we are working with the family tell them you just heard from DreamActivist.org that they are not! Tell them you KNOW Obama can fix this, but Rubio and Nelson can ALSO fix this. Don't let Rubio and Nelson off the hook.
What Senators can do:
1. Issue a letter, signed by the Senator, in support of Antonio. The letter should specifically ask that Antonio's deportation be stopped and his request for discretion granted. The senator must take a position on Antonio's case.
2. Call John Morton, the director of ICE, directly and ask that he use his discretion. Senators in many previous cases have made this call.
3. Issue a private bill. Any senator can sponsor a private bill and as soon as one is issued it will put a hold on any deportation for the remainder of the congressional session.
If the office tells you anything different then push them to do the above. They have the power to do it, but are refusing to do it.

To Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, John Morton; and Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano:
I am writing to call for the immediate release of Antonio Molina Barradona (A# 205-051-713) from Broward Transitional Center and urge you to immediately stop his deportation.
On May 24, 2012 Antonio Molina Barradona, who is a construction worker, was accompanying his boss to Home Depot for materials. The police saw that neither of them had a driver’s license and proceeded to call ICE, even though Antonio was only the passenger. Despite being low-priority, ICE detained Antonio and he has been at Broward Transitional Center ever since.
Antonio was born in El Salvador; it is dangerous as it is known for gangs who kidnap youth and even murder kids that resist joining a gang. Antonio’s brother and cousin have already been killed. His son was threatened and many people have died through shootings. Antonio’s mom who lives in El Salvador fears that Antonio will be sent back and murdered.
Antonio came to the U.S. on March 6th, 2001 and has now been living in the country for eleven years. At 40 years old, he works hard in order to provide for his family in the United States and in El Salvador, where he has two older sons. Antonio’s girlfriend of 5 years suffers from back problems and is diabetic. He was her main financial support and has now been forced to work after Antonio’s detention. Antonio’s girlfriend has three children and Antonio has been like a father to them. Antonio is a respectful and hardworking person who doesn’t deserve to be in detention.
For each day Antonio is detained, tax-payers are spending $166 for his detention. Antonio was only the passenger in a car and committed no crime, yet tax-payers have spent over $10,000 keeping Antonio in detention. According to the memo issued by John Morton, Antonio is a low-priority case and should be granted favorable use of prosecutorial discretion. Antonio has no criminal record and is the main provider for both of his families.
I urge you to release Antonio Molina Barradona (A# 205-014-373) from Broward Transitional Center and stop his deportation.
