To Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, John Morton; and Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano:
We, the undersigned, write to request that you take immediate action to stop the deportation of Wilfredo Russian (A# 099-759-887).
Wilfredo came to the United States, from Venezuela, in 2003 to ensure the safety of his family. Wilfredo fled the country after receiving threats from the Venezuelan government due to the family’s involvement in protests against policy changes in the work place of Mrs. Russian. Wilfredo, fearing for the safety of his wife and his then 3 year old son, made the decision to come to the United States to provide safety and a better life for his family. Despite being a low-priority case, Wilfredo is set to be deported to a country where his and his family’s lives could be at serious risk.
Back in Venezuela, Wilfredo graduated with a veterinarian degree and hopes to one day be able to exercise his career in the United States and continue providing for his family. Wilfredo and his family settled in Florida where his two children attend school. Despite the difficulties that the family has faced, Wilfredo has managed to continue supporting them and encouraging his children to do their best in school. As a result of his dedication, and that of his wife’s, his children have been recipients of several awards celebrating their excellence in school.
According to the memo issued by John Morton, Wilfredo is a low-priority case and should be granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion. Wilfredo has no criminal record and is a very important member of his family. If Wilfredo be deported, his family would be torn apart and he will be sent to a country where his life is at risk.
We, the undersigned, urge you to take action and stop the deportation of Wilfredo Russian (A# 099-759-887).
