Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director John Morton issued a memo stating that ICE personnel should exercise prosecutorial discretion in enforcement matters. Prosecutorial discretion would allow many people to stay in the country if they are not a threat to national security and have ties to their communities. Unfortunately, deportations continue to be at an all time high and many people who should be considered for prosecutorial discretion are still being deported. Families continue to be torn apart and there is no solution in the near future.

Sample Script: "Hi, I was calling to ask that the removal proceedings of Jose Zamudio-Monarres (A # 201 070 023) be stopped. Jose has been living in the United States for the past 9 years and is the husband of a U.S. citizen. If he is forced to voluntarily depart the country, he will be subject to the harsh 10 year ban. According to the Morton Memo, Jose is not a priority for deportation and should be allowed to stay. Don't deport Jose!!
I am writing to request that you take immediate action to stop the removal proceedings of Jose Zamudio-Monarres ( A# 201-070-023)
Jose should be considered a low-priority and be allowed to stay in this country and provide for his wife and still be able to help and send money to his family in Mexico for thier needs. He is not a threat to the country and the only charge he has against him is for being here illegal and no identification. Jose is a person of good moral character . We already have an approved i 1-30 but because we our struggling with money we cannot proceed just yet. If he is forced to voluntarily depart from the U.S. he will be subject to a 10 year ban from re-entering the country.
