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 Victor Hernandez (A# 072-116-096) from Broward Transitional Center. I urge you to immediately release Victor from detention to reunite him with his loved ones.
Victor was detained on May 8th while he was at work in construction. He came to the US in 1992 seeking asylum from the war in El Salvador. While he was filing the papers, Victor faced language difficulties managing the complex process ICE required and his request for asylum was never filed. 20 years later, now as a father of his own children, Victor was taken by law-enforcers while he was at work in construction because of a past deportation order he never received. He also has no criminal record at all. Despite being a low-priority case, he has transferred to Broward Transitional Center and has been there for over 2 months.
Victor and his family migrated to the US in 1992 because it was difficult to make a living with his incapacitated father, who lost his right arm from the war only as an innocent bystander. Victor, at a young age, was forced to work and was providing a living for his family. Now a father himself, he suffers to see his 13-year-old daughter who is not eating and sleeping because she cannot see her father in detention. His daughter is suffering from depression because they had shared a strong father-daughter bond and Victor is unable to do anything as he watches his family suffers from his lack of financial support.
According to the memo issued by John Morton, Victor is a low-priority case and should be released and granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion. Victor has hired three different lawyers in the past to address his legal issues and his language barrier but only found himself in financial crisis. He was the main financial supporter of his family and now his children are waiting for him to come back home.
I urge you to release Victor Hernandez (A# 721-160-96) from Broward Transitional Center and immediately stop his deportation
