Fernando Mendoza Hernandez (A#205324527): RELEASE DACA-ELIGIBLE DREAMer FROM DETENTION NOW!

    1. Petition by

      Salt Lake Dream Team END Campaign

PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION NOW TO TELL ICE AGENTS TO RELEASE FERNANDO MENDOZA HERNANDEZ (A#205324527) AS HE QUALIFIES FOR DACA.

 

On June 15, 2012 President Barack Obama set forth a policy called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) instructing ICE agents to halt the deportation of undocumented youth brought to the U.S. as children who meet certain criteria. Despite the new policy, DACA-eligible youth, Fernando Mendoza Hernandez (A#205324527) was arrested by a Salt Lake City ICE agent Briggs on November 28, 2012. Fernando is currently convicted with a Class C misdemeanor for disorderly conduct, a charge that would not disqualify him from DACA.

A father of two U.S.-born children, Fernando, 21, is an active and contributing member of his community. Fernando is a current member of San Andres Catholic Church in Payson and a former member of Notre Dame de Lourdes Catholic Church in Price, Utah. Fernando is currently enrolled in a GED program offered by Lighthouse Learning Center and is only one credit-shy of obtaining his GED. Fernando, who is originally from Mexico City, has resided in the United States since the age of 15 and considers the U.S. his only home.

Fernando's family has spoken with an immigration attorney who has told them he is eligible for DACA, yet he remains in the Utah County Facility in Spanish Fork. Fernando has been threatened by ICE agent Briggs to be deported and has been told he “has no hope.” He has also been interrogated and is being pressured by ICE agents to sign an order of deportation. Fernando's bail was set at $5,000 but has since been doubled for no reason. His family has struggled to obtain pertinent information concerning his arrest because ICE agents have been uncooperative to their requests.

      I am signing this petition in hopes it will open eyes and hearts of Congress and law makers to see that Fernando Mendoza is an absolutwonderful father to his son Daiel. it would not be fair to his son to grow up without his father just because he was not born in the USA. Fernando deserves a fair chance to rave his son with his common law wife apolonia Susan quintana. his son deserves to have his father in his life at all times. Fernando & endoza is a wonderful father to his son. please do not rip this family apart. Fernando provides for his son & loves him with all his heart please keep our family together.

      Fernando is a caring loving father to his son Daiel, his son is very attached to his father and mother. Fernando & apolonia Susan quintana are common law married as they have a son that will be 2 in April. This is important to me because, it is not fair for Daiel to grow up without his father.

      Sincerely,

      Joe Martinez
