Release Javier From ICE Detention!
URGENT: Help us stop the deportation of Javier Santos (A#200-203-135). On September 6th Javier was pulled over for nothing more than a missing license plate light.
Javier has three children, two of whom are a U.S. citizen. Javier's wife, Leticia, just gave birth to their third child, who was born three weeks premature and now has health issues. Leticia has developed diabetes because of the stress she and her family have been put through. If Javier is deported, he'll be separated from his family and won't be there to care for his newborn baby and his two children and wife.
Please help us get Javier Santos out of the Stewart detention facility by taking these 2 steps.

To Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, John Morton and Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano:
We, the undersigned, write to humbly request that you take action to release Javier de los Santos (A#200-203-135) from detention immediately.
Javier was driving home from work when he was stopped and arrested by a police officer for having a broken license plate light. As soon as Immigration and Customs Enforcement found out Javier’s immigration status, he was transferred to a detention center in Georgia. Javier is currently in detention, away from his family, waiting to be deported to a country he hasn’t been to in 15 years.
Javier came to the United States in 1996, from Mexico, with hopes of creating a better life for himself. He moved to Charlotte, North Carolina where he has lived ever since. Javier is married to his wife, Leticia, and together they have three children, Braulio and Odalis, ages 9 and 8 respectively. Leticia gave birth to their third child while Javier was detained in Georgia. The baby was born three weeks premature and has health problems; and Leticia has developed diabetes because of the stressful situation the family is in. If Javier is deported, he will be separated from his three children and wife.
Javier is an exemplary father and has always worked hard to provide for his beautiful family. Currently, Javier is the sole provider for his children and wife who just gave birth to their third child. Javier’s children miss their father terribly and want him home. Leticia, Javier’s wife, needs her husband to care for her as she has to care for their newborn baby, who has health issues, and their two older children on her own. Javier deserves to stay in the United States with his family. Please take action to release him from detention immediately.
In a recent announcement published on August 18, 2011, Secretary Napolitano stated the administration is implementing Prosecutorial Discretion in cases involving families like Javier's. According to the new guidelines, Javier is not deemed a priority for removal by DHS and merit a favorable exercise of discretion. We ask that you immediately take action to release Javier from detention so he can stay in the United States with his family.
We, the undersigned, urge you to release Javier Santos (A#200-203-135) from detention immediately.
