I am writing to call for the immediate release of DREAMer Roberto Simon Francisco (A# 205 014 350), from Broward Transitional Center in Florida and urge that you take immediate action to stop his deportation.
DREAM Act youth Roberto been detained, away from his girlfriend and their one month old baby, since June 16th, 2012. He was driving to his church to sing in the choir when he was pulled over for no reason by the police and arrested for driving without a license. President Obama's new memo announcement states that DREAM Act youth like Roberto should not be deported, yet he is being detained at the Broward Transitional Center in Florida. His next court date is on July 18th.
Roberto came to the United States on March 20th, 2004 when he was 14 years old. He is now 23 years old and has been really involved in his community and church. Roberto goes from house to house with his church choir every six weeks to sing in different communities. Roberto values his education but, unfortunately, he couldn’t finish school because he had to financially provide for his family. After Roberto’s mom passed away, he had to work to send money to Guatemala to help his dad with the bills.
Roberto met his girlfriend four years ago and they are the proud parents of a beautiful baby, who is only one month old. Roberto’s daughter needs her dad home and his girlfriend needs Roberto to be there so they can both raise their daughter as a family. Roberto works in landscaping in order to support his family and dreams of going back to school to continue his education.
According to the memo issued by John Morton, Roberto is a low-priority case and should be released and granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion.
I urge you to release Roberto Simon Francisco (A# 205 014 350) from Broward Transitional Center and call on ICE to stop his deportation.
