To Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, John Morton, and Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano:
I am writing to urge you to stop the deportation of Reyes Merlin Alfonsin (A# 200-678-149). Reyes has a wife and two U.S. citizen children who need him. According to the Morton Memo, he is a low priority deportation and should be granted discretion.
On December 2011, Reyes borrowed his friend’s car to go to work to provide for his family. A police officer checked the car’s plate and saw that the owner of the vehicle had an expired license. The officer proceeded to stop Reyes and asked him for his driver’s license. Reyes was arrested after he was unable to provide a “proper” identification and is now in deportation proceedings. Reyes is the main provider for his family and, if deported, his wife and two young children will suffer emotionally and financially.
Reyes is originally from Mexico and came to the United States in 2005 in search of a better life and better opportunities. He has lived in North Carolina for almost 8 years and has built a life in this country. Returning back to Mexico is not an option for Reyes and it would mean separation from his two children and wife, who depend on him for emotional and financial support.
According to the memo issued by John Morton, Reyes is a low priority case and should be granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion. If deported, Reyes will be separated from his wife and his U.S. citizen daughter and son. People should not be treated as less than human for simply trying to make a living, as Reyes was trying to do. Please don’t separate this family.
I urge you to stop the deportation of Reyes Merlin Alfonsin.
