To John Sandweg, Acting Director of ICE:
I am writing to urge you to stop the deportation of Carlos Garcia Angel (A# 205-205-247) who is set to be deported on October 7th, 2013. Carlos has three U.S. citizen children and one on the way who desperately need him. One of his children, 3-year old Omar, has a chronic lung condition called Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia and developmental delay. Without their father, his children - specially Omar, risk severe emotional, financial, and physical deprivation. Their mother will be unable to subsist without him, and this will direly impact the children. According to the Morton Memo, Carlos is a low priority case and his deportation should be stopped immediately.
On the night of February 12, 2012, Carlos was on his way home from work when he drove into a license checkpoint. He was arrested after he was asked for his driver's license but could not provide it. He cannot get one - the state of South Carolina does not issue driver's licenses to undocumented immigrants. Two days later, Carlos was released from county jail. Carlos was placed in deportation proceedings, however, and now faces deportation on October 7th, 2013.
Carlos came to North Carolina from Mexico in 1999 looking for a better future. He quickly found work in the construction industry and began supporting his family. Carlos had a driver's license for many years, but then South Carolina stopped giving licenses to undocumented immigrants. His license expired and he has not been able to renew it since then. Carlos has no other choice but to drive to and from work to support his family.
Carlos is the main breadwinner in his household which includes three US citizen children - Karen (7), Carlos (4), and Omar (3) - who depend on him for financial and emotional support and his wife, Elizabeth, of several years. Without him, his children and wife would be left to struggle alone. Jose also has no criminal record, making him a candidate for favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion under the memo issued by John Morton in 2011.
According to the memo issued by John Morton, Carlos is a low priority case and should be granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion. Please don't tear this family apart. I urge you to take action and immediately stop the deportation of Carlos Angel Garcia (A# 205-205-247).
