Another Low Priority Deportation: 1 Year Old Grandson Needs Miguel Home!

On October 21, Miguel was on his way to work when he was stopped by the police. He was arrested for driving with an expired license and was immediately transferred to North Georgia Detention where he has been ever since.

Miguel has two daughters and a one year old grandson who depend on him financially and emotionally. President Obama has said people like Miguel shouldn't be deported. Why is he still detained?

The Petition

To Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, John Morton, and Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano:

I am writing to call for the immediate release of Miguel Tzitzios Gonzalez (A# 205-210-562) from North Georgia Detention and urge ICE to stop his deportation. According to the Morton Memo, Miguel is a low-priority case and should be released from detention immediately so he can be reunited with his family.

On October 21, Miguel was on his way to work when he was pulled over by a police officer because his license plate was expired. When the officer asked him for an I.D., Miguel gave him his expired North Carolina driver’s license and when the officer asked him for a valid I.D., Miguel gave him his passport. The police officer arrested Miguel and charged him with driving without a license and for possession of fraudulent identification, even though he presented a valid passport. Despite being low priority, Miguel was transferred to North Georgia Detention where he has been ever since.

Miguel came to the United States, from Uruguay in October 1999 in search of a better life for his family. During his time in the country, Miguel has been a working and contributing member of his city of Charlotte, North Carolina. Miguel is a hard-working father who has been able to support his family of four despite his immigration status. With his eldest son being a U.S. permanent resident, he had the faith that he would soon resolve his immigration status.

Miguel is a single dad who supports his two daughters and his one year old grandson. Miguel’s youngest daughter just graduated from high school and started college. His oldest daughter works a part-time job and takes care of Sebastian, Miguel’s grandson. Miguel and Sebastian are inseparable and Sebastian has been suffering ever since Miguel was detained. Miguel is main provider for his family. Without Miguel, his two daughters and grandson will continue to suffer emotionally and financially.

According to the memo issued by John Morton, Miguel is not a priority for deportation and should be granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion. Miguel has no criminal record, has been living in the United States for 13 years, and has a family who needs him. If Miguel is deported, his family will be torn apart.

I urge you to take immediate action to release Miguel Tzitzios from North Georgia Detention and stop his deportation.
