Release DREAMer Juan Vazquez From ICE Detention in Florida!


Juan, a DREAM Act youth, has been detained at Broward Transitional Center since June 2012. He is set to be deported TOMORROW Wednesday July 18th! His three siblings fear that he will be kidnapped and killed if he is deported.

Sample Script: “I am calling to ask that you release DREAMer Juan Solis Vazquez (A# 205 014 315) from Broward Transitional Center. Juan is a 24 year old DREAMer who has been living in the U.S. since he was 15 years old. He suffers through depression and fears being kidnapped and killed if deported.

Letter to
Immigration and Customs Enfrocement
Secretary, Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano
Director, Immigration and Customs Enforcement John Morton
and 1 other
President Barack Obama
I am writing to call for the immediate release of DREAM Act youth, Juan Solis Vazquez (A# 205 014 315), from Broward Transitional Center in Florida and urge that you take immediate action to stop his deportation set for Wednesday, July 18th.

Juan, a DREAM Act eligible youth, has been detained in Broward Transitional Center since June 2012. Juan was arrested by a police officer for drinking in public at a gas station. He had been battling with depression and had turned to drinking to ease his suffering. Juan needs to receive treatment so he can get better; he shouldn’t be detained and kept away from the people who love and care for him.

On June 15th, President Obama made an announcement saying that DREAM Act youth will no longer be deported and will be given deferred action. If this is true, Juan will be released immediately and his Wednesday deportation will be stopped. Juan came to the United States to escape poverty and fears being sent back to Guatemala because he has no family there. Juan’s uncle was killed after living in Guatemala for one month; now Juan and his siblings fear that he will be kidnapped and killed if he’s deported.

Juan came to the United States when he was only 15 years old. He is currently 24 and considers Florida his home. If Juan is deported, he will be separated from his three siblings who reside in the United States. Juan’s deportation is a matter of life or death. His only wish is to be reunited with his family in Florida and be allowed to stay safely in the United States. Juan is a DREAM Act youth and he shouldn’t be facing deportation on Wednesday, July 18th.

I urge you to release Juan Solis Vazquez from Broward Transitional Center and call on ICE to stop his deportation.
