Hirineo left Mexico and came to the United States in 1995 in search of a better life. Hirineo is a hard working man who has a family of 3 kids and a wife in North Georgia. Hirineo was recently picked up by the Houston County jail for Driving without a license and following too closely. This is the first time in almost 20 years that he has gotten in trouble. His Brother Enrique traveled 2 hours south to pay his bond in full where the Captain at the Houston County jail promised him that Hirineo would be released if Immigration did not come and get him by 12pm on Monday morning. Hirineo was picked up by immigraton at 8:30am this morning. Hirineo is currently at the Stewart Detention Center waiting deportation. He has 3 US citizen kids and a wife whom he is the sole provider of. According to the morton memo he is a low priorty case and should be released immediately. Also due to the impending budget cuts why would we waste money deporting someone who is not worth deporting? Please help me and his family to keep him here!!!



Hirineo Benitez Cervantes was picked up by Immigration this morning despite being a low –priority case and having no previous record.  He has 3 kids that need their Father.

      When white racist xenophobe apartheid AmeriKKKa initiates self-deporting proceedings on themselves back to Europe and closes the U.S./Canadian border, then I can say; "Close the border!" WE RAZA are not "immigrants" to this continent! WE are an indigenous people to this land..., PERIOD!
