On November 22, 1986 Jose Martinez was murdered leaving behind a wife Idalia, and a 9-year old daughter, Joselyn. That 9-year old daughter vowed to find the man that killed her father. In 1986 as the police closed in on him the murderer Justo Santos evaded arrest by escaping to his native country the Dominican Republic. The murderer Justo Santos confessed to the crime in a Dominican court and served one year behind bars under a local law that allowed him to be charged for killing a native from that country. One year for a senseless murder! The murderer then returned to the United States and began to live a normal life. Joselyn Martinez kept her vow to find her fathers killer. Using social media and internet search engines she found the murderer Justo Santos living in Miami. He was working as a janitor in a courthouse. Joselyn contacted detectives and the murderer was arrested and extradited back to New York. After 26 years the family finally believed their long wait for justice was at hand. 26 years after a daughter vowed to find her daddy's killer. He was finally found...

In a cruel twist of fate this confessed murder was released after only 17 months in jail on the grounds that he wasn't granted a speedy trial. Even though it was the fact that he evaded arrest by escaping to the Dominican Republic that prevented a speedy trial. Unbelievably, after 27 Father's Days without justice Idalia and Joselyn Martinez watched the murderer walk out of court with his arm around his son. Unfortunately the Manhattan District Attorney will not appeal the judge's ruling to dismiss the murder indictment against Justo Santos. This means a confessed killer is now free based on a legal technicality he created by fleeing justice.  

In January 2007 Justo Santos became a United States citizen by withholding information about his conviction in the Dominican Republic for the murder of Jose Martinez in New York City on his application. When he was a guest of our country seeking the American Dream Justo Santos murdered Jose Martinez. By killing Jose Martinez his fellow countryman, a beloved husband, father and business owner he ended Mr. Martinez's American Dream.

Citizenship is a Privilege and an Honor. If you break our laws we can't reward you with Citizenship. If you kill people in cold blood on our streets we can't welcome you with open arms. If you somehow manage to defeat the screening process we can correct that mistake. Justo Jonah Santos Abinader does not deserve to be a citizen of our great country. He may never face true justice but we can correct one wrong. Let's end his American Dream. Let's send him home...

Please sign and let USCIS know we want Justo Santos denaturalized.
Revoke his citizenship.
