Another DACA Dreamer Ordered Deported: Free Carlos!
On January 16th, a week before he was set to be deported, Carlos was released with an Order of Supervision. He has a year to fight his case. Thank you!
According to the Obama administration DREAM Act eligible youth are no longer facing deportation, yet we have case after case of them actually being deported.
On December 27th Carlos was forced to take Voluntary Departure despite qualifying for DACA!

Sample Script: "Hi, I am calling to urge ICE to stop the deportation of Carlos Rodriguez (A#205-669-775). Carlos has been living in the U.S. since he was 5; he is DACA-eligible and should not be in immigration prison. Let Carlos go!"

To Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, John Morton, and Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano:
I am writing to ask for the immediate release of Carlos Rodriguez (A#205-669-775), currently being detained inside immigration prison at the Broward Detention Center.
In September Carlos was stopped for a broken brake-light; once stopped the officer noticed his license plate belonged to another vehicle and he was charged with petty theft. At court, on September 25th, Carlos’ charges were dropped, however he was still arrested and imprisoned by ICE.
Carlos has been living in the United States since he was 5-years old; he is currently engaged to his long-time partner and plans to soon marry her. Despite being DACA-eligible, On December 27th, Carlos was told by immigration Judge Rex Ford that he had no other option but to sign Voluntary Departure. In 2012 Judge Ford had a track-record of denying a record 100% of all asylum cases brought before him. Judge Ford is a biased judge set on deporting everyone who comes before him.
Carlos is now set to be deported on January 26th.
There is no reason why Carlos should have ever been detained in the first place; Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals was announced well before Carlos’ was sent to immigration prison. According to all of the memos issued by John Morton, Carlos is a low-priority for deportation, Dream Act-eligible and DACA-eligible.
Therefore, I ask for the immediate release of Carlos Rodriguez (A#205-669-775) from the immigration prison, Broward Detention Center.
