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 Omar Gaspar Ramirez (A# 205 013 429) from Broward Transitional Center in Florida and urge that you take immediate action to stop his deportation.
On November 2011, Omar was driving home to his family after a long day at work when he was pulled over by a police officer. Omar was arrested and was immediately transferred to Broward Transitional Center, where he has been kept away from his wife and four U.S. citizen children. Despite being low-priority, Omar has been detained for the past 8 months and has been forced to spend several holidays away from his family.
Omar is 29 years old and has been living in the United States for 12 years now. He moved to this country, from Guatemala, in order to provide a better life for his family. He has submitted an application for a work permit but it has not arrived yet and he is the main provider for his family. Omar’s 10 year old son has asthma and trouble hearing. He needs his dad to care for him and provide him with emotional and financial support.
According to the memo issued by John Morton, Omar is a low-priority case and should be released and granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion. Since Omar has been detained, his family has had a difficult time making ends meet. If he is deported, his children will grow up without their dad and his wife will have to provide for their children on her own.
I urge you to release Omar Gaspar Ramirez from Broward Transitional Center and call on ICE to stop his deportation.
