To Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, John Morton; and Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano:
I write to ask that DREAMer Francisco Hernandez (A#205210075) be granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immediately and that his deportation proceedings be closed.
Francisco “Paco” Hernandez, now 23, came to North Carolina from Mexico at the age of 14. He graduated from McDowell High School in 2009 and was attending McDowell Technical Community College when he was taken into immigration custody.
On May 13, 2011, Paco was wrongfully arrested. Paco and two friends were coming home from a party where Paco had been drinking. Being responsible, Paco let one of his sober friends, Luis –on leave from the military- drive. On their way home Paco’s car broke down; so all three friends got out to push it and Luis handed Paco the keys. While pushing the car, the police showed up to help the boys but instead (despite the care being completely off and immobile) arrested Paco and charged him with a DUI.
Despite his innocence, Paco was charged and sentenced to 30-months of probation. He didn’t miss a single check-in with his officer, however, at his November 28, 2012, check-in ICE was waiting for him. Paco was detained and forced to spend nearly 2-months in immigration detention in Gerogia. Paco was finally released on a $15,000 bond, allowing him to fight his case from the outside.
Paco is an important member of the Western North Carolinian community, it would be a tragedy if he were deported. Paco is clearly DREAM Act eligible. In June of 2013, Paco filed for Deferred Action, yet he is still being forced to see an immigration judge and could be deported any day.
I urge for you to immediately grant Paco’s Deferred Action application and terminate his deportation proceedings.
