The Petition

To Senator Mitch McConnell, Rep. Chandler, Secretary Napolitano and Assistant Secretary John Morton:

I am writing to request that you take action to immediately halt the deportation of Julio Martinez (case #A077-694-249). On Wednesday morning, March 17th, 2010, Julio was arrested by immigration officials claiming he had missed a court date when he was only 7 years-old. Julio now sits in a jail in Kenosha County awaiting deportation.

Julio Cesar Martinez Delgado is a freshman at Bluegrass Community and Technical College, and a graduate of Franklin County High School; he was a member of the varsity soccer team. On Monday, March 22nd, Julio turned 19 years old.

He barely knows his family in Honduras because most of them are here in the US. Also, there is a lot of crime in Honduras and his family is scared for his safety. Julio is a great young man, and he is an active member of his church where he was a leader in the church band. Also, he was working to put himself through college financing out of his own pocket his education because he was not eligible for neither Federal nor state-level financial aid just like many other students in his situation. Nonetheless, his education is important to him and he desperately wants to study so that one day he can contribute to his community and to the country he loves and calls home.

We ask that you consider the special circumstances surrounding Julio Martinez’ case. He was only 7 years old when he was assigned to appear in immigration court with his mother. It is obvious that given his young age, Julio did not make the decision to enter into the U.S. without authorization or to miss an appointment important to his immigration case. Having spent his formative years in the U.S., Julio deeply identifies with this country. Deportation will send him back to a country that has become a foreign place to him, separate him from his family, and bring undue hardship to him and his family.

Julio’s case merits an administrative closure that would allow him to complete his education in the United States. In view of his family's modest economic circumstances, his only hope for completing his college education and fulfilling his professional aspirations is here in the United States. For him to have to leave the United States at this time would be tragic given his potential for further academic and professional success.

We urge you to immediately take action to stop Julio’s deportation.

Thank You
