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 Arlondo Felix Perez (A#205-344-660) from Broward Transitional Center. I urge you to immediately stop the deportation of Arlondo and make it possible for him to return home to his family.
Arlondo arrived to the United States in 1993, at the age of 12, after he and his family suffered persecution as a result of the civil war in Guatemala at the time. He worked and lived in several states before settling down in Florida where he met his wife with whom he has 4 citizen children.
In 2001, while on his way to work, Arlondo was stopped by the police and arrested for driving without a license. Even though he had no previous criminal record, Arlondo was deported to Guatemala. That same year, he re-entered the country because he needed to keep supporting them financially and because he could not bare being separated from his children and wife.
On May 9th, Arlondo and his family were on their way to buy baby care products when they were stopped by the police. Since Arlondo was driving the car, he was once again arrested for driving without a license and later detained by immigration and was taken to the Broward Transitional Center where is still held today.
Since Arlondo’s arrest, the lives of his 4 citizen children and his wife have been very difficult and stressful. His wife had to leave her job to care for their 4 children as a result of that they have lost their home and suffered several other economic hardships. Arlondo is a hardworking, caring, and loving father who deserves to be reunited with his family.
According to the memo issued by John Morton, Arlondo is a low-priority case and should be released and granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion.
I urge you to release Arlondo Felix Perez (A#205-344-660) from Broward Transitional Center and immediately stop his deportation.
