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 Jose Castro (A# 200-132-146) from Broward Transitional Center and urge you to immediately stop his deportation.
On July 4th, Jose was stopped by a Border Patrol officer while on his way to church. The officer asked Jose to show his identification and, when he responded that he didn’t have any, he was pulled out of the car. The officer began to verbally mistreat Jose and arrested him. Despite being a low-priority case, Jose was immediately taken to Broward Transitional Center and has been detained ever since.
Jose came to the United States, from Honduras, in 2002. Jose is terrified of being sent back to Honduras because his brother, who is a member of a gang in Honduras, has threatened to kill him. Jose’s brother has already kidnapped his own father and feels no remorse about wanting to kill his own brother. Jose’s life is in serious danger if he’s deported back to the country he escaped.
According to the memo issued by John Morton, Jose is a low priority case and should be granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion. Jose has no criminal record and deserves to be reunited with his family and community in Florida.
I urge you to release Jose Castro from Broward Transitional Center and stop his deportation.
