To Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, John Morton; and Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano:
I am writing to call for the immediate stop of Virigilio Caranza’s (A#074-169-858) deportation. I urge you to immediately stop the deportation of Virgilio and make it possible for him to stay in the United States with his 4 children and wife.
Virigilio, originally from Mexico, arrived to the United States in 1999 looking for better opportunities for himself and for his family. He settled in Florida where he quickly found work and began supporting his family in the United States and his parents in Mexico.
Due to the need to provide for his family, since he arrived to the Unites States, Virigilio has been forced to drive without a license. Because he had been driving without a license to provide for his family, he has had 3 no license offenses. On February 2nd, as soon as he got out of work, he headed over to the park where he did community service for his no license offense. When Virigilio arrived at the Park, ICE was already waiting for him. ICE took him to the Broward Transitional Center where he has been held for 6 months now.
Virigilio has been detained since February of 2012 and is set to be deported on Tuesday, July 24th. For every day he is detained, as tax-payers, we have spent $166, totalling over $30,000!
Since his arrest his parents in Mexico and his wife and 4 in the United States have suffered economic and emotional hardships. His children ask for his father to come home to them and Virgilio’s arrest has had a negative effect on their school work.
According to the memo issued by John Morton, Virigilio is a low-priority case and should be granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion. Maulilio has no criminal record and is the main provider for his family.
