Mar 31, 2012 — Our attorney told us she had expected to hear back from the BIA regarding the appeal made by the government by the end of March. Yesterday I received an email from her telling us she hopes to hear back from the BIA hopefully by the end of May. It has already been 2yrs & 5 months. and 5 months since we won in court yet he is still detained.
We are asking if you could take 5 minutes out of your day this week to make 2 calls for us. One to John Morton, Director ICE #(202-732-3000/202-732-3100) telling him that you wish that the Government withdraw their appeal in Orlando Fernandez Taveras' case A#035 362 472 and one to Governor Cuomo's office at (518) 474-8390 or you can fill out an online submission at http://www.governor.ny.gov/contact/GovernorContactForm.php telling him that you support him in approving our Pardon request.
