The Petition

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 Ricardo Araujo (A# 088 307 678) from Broward Transitional Center in Florida and urge that you take immediate action to stop his deportation.

Ricardo came to the United States looking for a better life for his family. He was put into proceedings after being scammed when he tried to get his driver’s license. On June 2011, he received a deportation order and a letter telling him he needed to leave the home he has built in the United States within 30 days. He didn't leave because he has a wife and three U.S. born children who need his emotional and financial support. Despite being a low-priority case, Ricardo has been detained since June 18th, away from his family and community.

Ricardo's wife said "I miss him, he takes us everywhere. When I get home he's not here anymore and the children are crying." His three young children have been suffering from not having their dad home. One of their children cuts herself and cries every day because her dad is not with her. She was diagnosed with depression but could not continue receiving therapy because of the high costs. Ricardo’s family needs him home.

According to the memo issued by John Morton, Ricardo is a low-priority case and should be released and granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion. Ricardo has been living in the United States for 15 years. He has a work permit and has been working in construction to be able to provide for his family. If deported, his children will be forced to grow up without their dad.

I urge you to release Ricardo Araujo from Broward Transitional Center and call on ICE to stop his deportation.
