Update - 3 Month Extension Granted!!!
Jul 13, 2017 — We are very pleased to announce that DHS/ICE has agreed to a 3 month extension for Francisco Javier Gonzalez and his family.
It appears that they have recognized the vast efforts we have made on his behalf, and the amazing support from the South Florida community, as well as people from all around the world - all in support of this urgent and compelling case. Javier and his family thank everyone who took the time and effort to sign the petition, and also make calls and share this petition with so many others. There is absolutely NO doubt that this petition played a significant role in our victory today. Again, we thank everyone who supported this amazing man and his family in this very deserving cause.
Please remember - while today was an important victory and a significant step in this process, this cause will continue and is far from over. We look forward to additional progress in the months ahead, with the hope that when Javier again must report to DHS/ICE in less than three months, we will be able to achieve additional - and hopefully permanent - success.
Thank you again.
