detained going to church: Bring maulilio home!
Maulilio was told he'll be deported within a week.
In February of 2011 Maulilio was on his way to church when a motorcycle crashed into him. He waited for police to arrive as it wasn't his fault but instead of treating him the police had him arrested for driving without a license.
Maulilio has since missed the birth of his 5th child. One of his kids has a major speech impairment and, since detained, has not progressed at all in therapy.

Your Contact Information
* Required information
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 Maulilio Amizael Ambrocio-Mendez (A# 793 462 44) from Broward Transitional Center in Florida and urge that you take immediate action to stop his deportation.
Earlier this year, in February, Maulilio was driving to his local church to attend a Bible Study class when a motorcycle crashed into his car. Instead of being sent to the hospital, Maulilio was asked for his ID. Not having official U.S. ID on him, Maulilio was immediately sent to Broward Transitional Center in Florida where he has spent the last five months.
Maulilio, a husband and father, immigrated to the United States from Guatemala ten years ago. Up until six years ago, Maulilio was staying in the United States legally and was in the process of regularizing his status, when his lawyer mishandled some paperwork and his application was denied. Maulilio decided to remain in the United States, however, since he had to provide for his four children, all U.S. citizens, who depend on him for both financial and moral support. Before he was detained, Maulilio was helping his five-year-old, who has a speech disability and needs specific care. His wife is due to give birth to their fifth child soon, and they are both worried that Maulilio won't be there to witness their child's birth.
According to the memo issued by John Morton, Maulilio is a low-priority case and should be granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion. Maulilio has no criminal record and is the breadwinner for his family, which includes four U.S. citizen children, whose well-being depends on Maulilio's ability to stay here. Please help keep Maulilio in the country that he considers home so that he can remain with his family.
I urge you to release Maulilio Amizael Ambrocio-Mendez from Broward Transitional Center and call on ICE to stop his deportation.
