IMMINENT DEPORTATION OF NORTH CAROLINA BROTHERS ! CALL ICE AT 704-672-3824 AND ASK THEM TO USE FAVORABLE PROSECUTORIAL DISCRETION AND RELEASE THE DELGADO BROTHERS!
Two North Carolina brothers and fathers of nine minor American citizen children face imminent deportation by ICE. They are scheduled to be deported today. After 25 years of ICE allowing Jose and Drario Delgado to remain provisionally in the country, they were handcuffed and detained check-in in Charlotte, North Carolina right before Thanksgiving during an immigration check-in. They do not have criminal records. They are the victims of immigration legal malpractice – the brothers were going through the process to gain residency however their attorney withdrew a critical petition. The mistake was not caught until they hired a new attorney this year, however by then ICE closed their case and ordered them removed. They have pending motions before the Immigration Board of Appeals, however ICE intends to deport them before their motions can be heard. If deported it will costs taxpayers about $25,000 to pay for the deportation process. Once they are deported their nine American citizen children will need to file for EBT benefits, at a cost to taxpayers of over $20,000 annually. They will also qualify for public housing if their fathers are deported as they will no longer be able to pay for their current homes.
Deporting the Delgado Brothers is physically irresponsible choice for taxpayers and a morally bankrupt choice for their children.
Yesterday their children, family members, church members, and communit members met at the North Carolina GOP Headquarters to ask GOP Chariman Robin Hayes to call ICE on their behalf and ask them to use favorable prosecutorial discretion so the brothers can be released to their families and their motions can be heard before the immigration court of appeals. The GOP locked their doors, would not answer phone calls and called the police. Yesterday was also Dario's son Luis' fourth birthday. He spent his birthday at the GOP asking for support only to have his cries silenced by indifference and locked doors.
Call the GOP Chairman Robin Hayes NOW @ 919-828-6423: "Hello, my name is ___. I'm a Republican and I'm outrages by the fiscally irresponsible deportation of José and Darío Delgago. Their deportation is tearing up their families and goes against Christian values. I urge NC GOP Chairman Robin Hayes to intervene in their behalf. Thank you for your time."

FAST FACTS ABOUT THE DELGADO BROTHERS, JOSE & DARIO:
The Delgado Brothers are the victims of attorney malpractice, copies of the complaints filed against Attorney Calder and Attorney Robles Avila are available upon request
The Brothers came to the United States over 25 years ago AS CHILDREN seeking political asylum from the corrupt Mexican governmet
They were deemed a low priority for deportation and permitted to remain in the United States of America as long as they attended immigration check-ins
They have attended their check-ins
They are not criminals – they have clean records
Both have worked and paid taxes
Both have medically fragile American Citizen children - 3 medically fragile, 9 children between them
They have pending Motions to Reopen before the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA)
The Brothers were forced to wear ankle monitoring bracelets
Right before Thanksgiving they received a summons to immediately appear at their Charlotte check-in location
There they were detained and handcuffed
The Brothers both qualify for Cancellation of Removal - no criminal records, entered the country seeking asylum, medically fragile children, american citizen children, sole providers
It will cost around $25,000 in taxpayer money to deport the Delgado brothers
Once deported their nine minor American citizen children will be forced to rely on EBT for food and public housing for shelter. Both place a burden on taxpayers. The families qualify for over $20,000 annually in EBT once their fathers have been deported.
