      This is unjust to continue holding Cesar after he did not commit a heinous crime like this jail time would suggest and needs a fair trial. Return his family's bond money and treat them justly.

      Many people come from overseas and other countries for many reasons.This is not one of them. Equal rights exist here-not in this case! When did victims become "criminals?" I am not sitting by quietly while this is going on!

      Please--we cannot in good conscience or with common sense deport this young person, who in every meaningful way is an American with so much to contribute to our society. To rend him from his family, send him to a country he's too young to remember, and devastate his life for a traffic violation is unthinkable. Please do the humane and wise thing, and help him to remain in the U.S., where he will contribute to the American Dream we all share.
