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 Luis Antonio Cardona (A# 205-503-357) from Broward Transitional Center and urge you to immediately stop his deportation.
On July 6th, Luis was driving to work when he was stopped by a police officer. When Luis could only provide proof of car insurance, the officer arrested him and charged him for driving without a driver’s license and also for driving with an expired license, even though he never showed one to the officer. Both of the tickets have been paid, yet Luis was still transferred to Broward Transitional Center where he has remained ever since.
Luis has a 3 week old son with his partner of five years. Luis’ partner cannot work because she needs to take care of their newborn son and is struggling financially as a result. If Luis is deported to Honduras, he will be separated from his newborn son and girlfriend who depend on him emotionally and financially. Furthermore, Luis’ family in Honduras will also struggle financially as Luis is the main provider for them, as well.
Luis came to the United States 7 years ago, when he was only 19. He is turning 26 years old on August 27th and wishes nothing more than to celebrate his birthday in the company of his newborn son, his partner, and entire family. Soon after Luis arrived in the U.S., he promised that he was going to help his two sisters graduate from school. He kept his promise and has worked hard to send money to them so they can continue with their education.
For each day Luis is detained tax-payers are spending $166 for his detention. Luis’ traffic tickets were no more than a few hundred dollars and now tax-payers have spent over $2,150 keeping Luis in detention. According to the memo issued by John Morton, Luis is a low-priority case and should be granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion. Luis’ dream is to see his sisters grow up to be professionals and help support his son in every way possible.
I urge you to release Luis Antonio Cardona from Broward Transitional Center and stop his deportation.
