Pending 3rd Circuit Court Decision

Jan 1, 2013 — It has been 3yrs & 2 months that Orlando has been detained now & the 4th Christmas & New Years away from his family. ICE has consistantly denied Orlando's release & would rather pay over $100 a day to house & feed him than allow him to be released & work to support his family. His 4yr old daughter & wife went to visit him prior to Christmas at the facility 4hrs away from their phone for a 1hr visit &Isabelle could not understand why he won't come over her house to play with her. She cried for over 1/2hr after leaving saying how much she missed him. Enough is enough. All paperwork has been filed with the 3rd Circuit since October and now we have to sit & wait for a decision. Even when that comes, which could be another 4-8 months more at best, the nightmare may not end. It could be taken to the Supreme Court or end up back in Immigration Court. We need our supporters to PLEASE call ICE, your local representatives, President Obama &others and tell them his prolonged detention is unjust
