Don't Destroy Their Family. Tell ICE: Release Detainee Eduardo Cifuentes; Father of 3 US Children

Eduardo is a Guatemalan immigrant who came to the United States over 10 years ago. He has three US citizen children between the ages of 4 and 9 years old. Eduardo has been detained for over a month. He has absolutely no criminal record and is not threat to society. His children have not seen him since the day he was detained. His children rely on him entirely for their care, love, emotional and financial support. His youngest son suffers from severe asthma and Eduardo is his primary caretaker; responsible for taking him to his medical check-ups and buying his medication. Eduardo is a hardworking father that cares greatly for his children. The absence of Eduardo at home has caused his children to suffer, emotionally and financially. His oldest daughter, typically a vivacious and conversational child, has become withdrawn in school and finds it difficult to participate in group activities. Eduardo has an order of removal from August of 2000, but he has the potential for a U-2 visa, rendering his order moot. His common law wife, and mother of his children, is a bona fide U-Visa applicant as a victim of a serious violent crime.

If Eduardo is sent back to Guatemala it will destroy his family. His children love him very much and need him at their side. Eduardo has lived in the United States for more than 10 years and he has proven to be a good father and a hardworking man. PLEASE SIGN TO STOP HIS DEPORTATION AND HAVE HIM RELEASED!

After you have signed, please take a Moment to Call DHS.

Say: "Hi, I am calling to ask you to exercise discretion under the John Morton memo and release Eduardo Manuel Cifuentes. His A# is A77-922-400. Thank you very much."

      why are we spending the limited resources of the US government (and our hard-earned tax dollars) trying to deport good family members, especially where there are US citizen children?

      This is happening to a lot of people right now. It is not right and it is unamerican. My children are losing their father. He is not an angel but he is not a bad man either. He is a loving dad who worked hard every day to help support our family. I can't believe this is happening. How can this possibley be the right thing to do. My children are being punished for something that is not thier fault. Please fi you are reading this it is up to all of us to do something. Children are the one paying the price!!!

      Do not break up this family! Eduardo is a loving father and caring neighbor. His family needs him! We need more people like Eduardo in our country, the land of opportunity. Please do all you can to help him stay with his family!
