“Hi, I’m calling to ask the Senator to take a position on Maximino Hoz (A#087-742-785). He has been in detention for a whole year wasting thousands of tax-payer dollars. Max's two youngest kids, aged 10 and 12 are severely depressed and suicidal over his detention. Max was once deported before, however he is still a low-priority case and should be allowed to fight his case from home."
If Nelson's office tells you . . .
If Nelson's office tells you 'we are working with the family' tell them you just heard from DreamActivist.org that they are not! Tell them you KNOW Obama can fix this, but Nelson can ALSO fix this. Don't let Nelson off the hook. What Senators can do:
1. Issue a letter, signed by the Senator. The letter should specifically ask that the deportation be stopped and the request for discretion granted. The senator must take a position on this case.
2. Call John Morton, the director of ICE, directly and ask that he use his discretion. Senators in many previous cases have made this call.
3. Issue a private bill. Any senator can sponsor a private bill and as soon as one is issued it will put a hold on any deportation for the remainder of the congressional session.
If the office tells you anything different then push them to do the above. They have the power to do it, but are refusing to do it.

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 Maximino Hoz (A# 087 742 785) from Broward Transitional Center in Florida and urge that you take immediate action to stop his deportation.
On January 2012, Maximino Hoz was fishing with his children during their winter holidays when a Forest Guard came over to inquire about his name and immigration status. Clearly racially profiled, Maximino was then sent to Broward Transitional Center where he has spent the past eight months, despite being a low-priority case.
Maximino, who was born in Mexico, has been living in the United States for the past nineteen years. He has a wife and five children who depend on him for both financial and moral support. Before he was detained, Maximino was the primary caregiver for his sixteen-year old, who has a disability and has trouble reading, his twelve-year-old who has gastritis, and his nine-year-old child, who has been diagnosed with depression and is suicidal. His children are severely depressed due to their separation.
Maximino is sick and is not in a stable condition to continue remaining in Broward. Once he spent three weeks without food in Broward, became severely ill and yet received no medication. He needs an eye operation and also requires medication for severe knee pain, which he is not receiving.
According to the memo issued by John Morton, Maximino is a low-priority case and should be granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion. Maximino has no criminal record and instead is the main provider for a wife and five children, who also depend on him as a caregiver. Please help keep Maximino in the country that he considers home so that he can remain with his family and help take care of them.
I urge you to release Maximino Hoz from Broward Transitional Center and call on ICE to stop his deportation.
