To Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, John Morton, and Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano:
I am writing to ask that you take immediate action to stop the deportation of Adelaida Godinez (A#098-224-127), currently detained at the Calhoun County Jail. Adelaida is terrified of being deported and has asked for a Reasonable Fear Interview.
Adelaida has been told she will be deported Monday, April 8th, 2013.
Adelaida came to the U.S. in 2002 from Guatemala, has four U.S. citizen children, and suffers from epigastric/stomach issues. She was arrested in 2005, but was released because she had kids. She was given voluntary departure, but overstayed to be with her daughter, who had just undergone surgery.
She was arrested on March 4, 2013 for working with false papers when her employer turned her into ICE as a way not to pay her wages and has been detained at Calhoun County Jail since then.
Adelaida has been away from her husband and four U.S. citizen children for more than a month. Her children miss her greatly and need their mother back with them.
Michigan ICE Field Director Rebecca Adducci has a track-record of ignoring directives from national ICE. In April of 2011, and again October of 2012, her agents detained parents outside a local high-school. In January of 2012 Director Adducci refused to grant discretion in the case of Yanelli Hernandez, a DREAMer who had attempted suicide twice while in detention. On Director Adducci’s watch over 4200 ICE detainers have been issued in the state of Michigan; of those nearly 80% were against individuals with no prior contact with law enforcement.
I urge you to take immediate action and stop the deportation of Adelaida Godinez.
