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 Macario Gonzalez (A# 205-202-012) from Broward Transitional Center and urge ICE to immediately stop his deportation.
In December 2011, Macario was stopped by the the police for having tinted windows on his car. Rather than just getting a ticket, Macario was arrested for driving without a license. Despite being a low priority case under the Morton Memo, Macario has been detained at BTC ever since.
Since Macario’s detention, his wife had to work 22 hours to make ends meet after he was detained. His 18 year old son was forced to drop out of high school during his last year to work in the fields picking tomatoes in order to financially provide for his family. Macario is the father of seven children, three of whom are U.S. citizens. All of them, including their youngest daughter who is only 2 years old, are suffering emotionally and need their dad home.
Macario came to the United States from Mexico in 2001 when he was 28 years old. He came to the U.S. because he couldn't find work in Mexico and he needed to support his family. There was a lot of violence in Mexico and people were getting killed and kidnapped, Macario was scared his children would face violence.
Macario Gonzalez represents the type of person that should be granted Prosecutorial Discretion, as stated in the memo issued by John Morton over a year ago. Macario has been living in the U.S. for over 11 years; he has seven children, 3 of whom are U.S. citizens; and he has no criminal background. Macario’s children shouldn’t suffer over their dad’s detention and his 18 year old needs to return to school.
I urge you to release Macario Gonzalez (A# 386-855-1295) from Broward Transitional Center immediately and stop his deportation.
