Grant Justice and Stop the Deportation of Julio Maldonado and Denis Calderon

This petition had 1,037 supporters

Please sign and send this letter, urging PA Governor Rendell and DHS Secretary Napolitano do the right thing for Julio Maldonado and Denis Calderon by providing them the justice they have been denied of for the past 13 years.

Julio and Denis were long time permanent residents and qualified 100% for citizenship until their life was turned upside down. In 1996 they were victims of a racially motivated attack and in a twist of events, instead of the authorities investigating the attack and charging the assailants, Julio and Denis again became victims; this time of a wrongful conviction. There is no question that this was injustice since they have twice proved their innocence in the courts, however because of technicalities, their conviction remains.

Julio and Denis have both been in Federal prison for the past 4 years because they did not sign their deportation papers in 2005.  They should not have to live the rest of their life in prison for not wanting to go back to a country they do not know. They should not have to be permanently exiled from their only family (all American citizens), as innocent men.

Their only hope for justice to prevail is a Full Pardon from Pennsylvania Governor Rendell and a Cancellation of Deportation from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano.


LET GOV. RENDELL, DAVID VENTURELLA & SECTY. NAPOLITANO (DHS)  know that this injustice needs to STOP now and that Denis and Julio deserve Justice the American way

1.     Call Governor Rendell's office at (717) 787-2500 and ask the governor to  ((1))  expedite review of Julio Maldonado Pardon № 23958 request and ((2)) to request that DHS wait for the pardon process to complete

2.     Call David Venturella, Acting Director of ICE's Office of Detention and Removal Operation, at (202) 732-3100 to request that DHS allow Julio Maldonado #A30326124 (to stay in the U.S. until his request for a pardon is reviewed by Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell)

3.     Call DHS (let's fill their voice mail) at (202) 282-8495 and leave a message to Secretary Napolitano asking her to....  CANCEL the DEPORTATION of Julio Maldonado (A30326124) and Denis Calderon (A37919176) IMMEDIATELY - or - at the minimum provide them with a STAY OF DEPORTATION, DEFERRED ACTION and a RELEASE UNDER AN ORDER OF SUPERVISION until their PARDON petition completes. They are innocent men, victims of hate and injustice. They deserve true AMERICAN JUSTICE.
