Urgent: Stop Deportation of Francisco Javier Gonzalez, husband & father of 3 U.S. citizens

We have ten (10) days to stop the deportation of Francisco Javier Gonzalez, the father and SOLE breadwinner for 3 U.S. citizen children and his U.S. citizen wife – who desperately need him to stay in the United States. Sign this petition to stop Francisco from being taken away from his family on April 20th.  Francisco Javier Gonzalez could be deported back to Mexico as soon as April 20, 2018. Francisco came to the United States when he was only 15 in February of 1997. He was alone in this country and worked hard to get an education, graduating from high school and continuing his education in college. Francisco was unable to graduate from college because at the time they required a valid state identification which Francisco was unable to obtain due to his lack of legal status in the United States. Despite this setback, he worked hard and succeeded in the United States. Francisco speaks perfect English and has NO CRIMINAL HISTORY IN THE US or any other country in the world. He obtained his education, works hard, pays his taxes and lives an exemplary life abiding by all US laws. Francisco has never been back to his native country Mexico since his last arrival in January of 2002. He has made the United States of America his home and is now a loving husband and father to three beautiful daughters in Florida. Sign this petition now to stop Francisco’s from being deported on April 20th. Francisco met his wife in 2005 while both were working in a restaurant in Palm Beach, Florida. They fell in love and were married in 2006. Eleven years later, their love continues to grow. They have three amazing daughters together, ages 10, 7, and 5. The girls’ futures will be seriously compromised if he is removed. Were they to remain in the U.S. without their father, the girls would suffer extreme emotional and psychological damage from the breakup of their solid family dynamic and the absence of their hero—their father. Francisco has been and continues to be a key player in the success of his employer. He manages a prestigious restaurant in Palm Beach, FL. Through his hard work and dedication, the business has grown to three times its size from when Francisco took over. Francisco is loved and respected by everyone, he has made many friends and many of the usual customers have formed bonds and relationships with Francisco and his family. Francisco is a person of good moral character who deserves a chance to present his immigration case before Immigration Court with a council. He attends church every Sunday and is very involved in his community. He is the sole economic provider for his family. Sign the petition to respectfully request that Mr. Francisco Javier Gonzalez’s deportation be stopped, according to the new guidelines for prosecutorial discretion. Then, please take a few minutes to call: Denise Blackwell Supervisory Program Manager Customs and Border Protection Houston Field Office (713) 387-7217 ofc   Vladimir Diaz, DHS/ICE Public Affairs Officer: (954) 236-4909.

Stop the Deportation of Crecensio

Crecensio  is a hardworking father of 4. ICE detained him on Feburary 7, 2018 at one of his regular check-ins. Under an Order of Supervision for years with no criminal history, Crecensio has been in the United States for 12 years. He has made a home for his family in Kansas City, Kansas.  Crecensio will be leaving behind his wife, Yazmin, and their four children, Eduardo (17), Alberto (16), Antony (8), and Kevin (5). The family fled Guerreo, Mexico in 2006, considered one of the most violent states in Mexico, to give their sons opportunities they never had. They feared for their children’s lives and their future because of the highly violent drug cartel activity in Guerrero. Crecensio is the sole provider of the family. Yazmin has a disability preventing her from being able to work. Antony has Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, he has to get a monthly shot to help alleviate the pain and to prevent his bones from deteriorating completely. Without Crecensio, Yazmin fears she will be unable to attend to both Antony’s physical and financial medical needs. Nothing has changed. Crecensio should be released on supervision like he was for the last 8 years! Antony needs his father. The family needs their provider. Yazmin needs her husband.  Sign the petition so another family isn’t torn apart. Also, please consider making a donation to the family. Even $10 can go a long way for the family.  https://www.gofundme.com/Crecenciomendez

Petition to Pat Toomey, U.S. House of Representatives

Without DREAMERS There is No American Dream

  I am writing this letter regarding the bill S.1615- the DREAM Act of 2017. For all who does not know, The DREAM Act is a bill that cancels the removal and grants protection with permanent residential status to aliens younger then the age of 18. The DREAMers are illegal immigrant children, who were brought to the United States unwillingly before the age of 18. I am writing to you in hopes that you will support this bill.            A “Dreamer” refers to a young person who qualifies for the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act. According to Matt Hildreth of Americasvoice.org, they are called the DREAMers because they are the only generation of immigrants who grew up thinking that they have the same opportunities as other U.S citizens.           On September 5 2017, President Donald Trump ended the Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals also known as DACA. Since 2013, DACA has helped nearly 800,000 young people gain a temporary work permit and kept them from getting deported. Since the DACA is gone, our young people are at risk getting deported. Now there is a rush for Congress to pass the Dream Act.            According to Toomey.senate.gov, Senator Toomey agreed that “Children, who were brought to the United States illegally, at a young age, are not at fault and deserve our support.” I agree. I believe that the DREAM Act would lead our children in the right direction. If the DREAM Act is passed then it would add financial gains to our Country. According to Americanprogess.com, in over a decade, the annual gains could gross over $728.4 billion in term. Placing all eligible workers on a path to legal status would total $2.7 billion annually. Not only that, but according to Center for immigration studies, the Dream Act would raise average incomes between $82 and $273 yearly.         Although our immigration system is extremely broken, The DREAM act is the way to go. The American Dream is the ideal that the government should protect each person's opportunity to pursue their own idea of happiness. We are Americans and we pride ourselves on being the land of the free. If our dreamers get deported, then we are sending them to an unknown territory. We are possibly deporting them alone, scared, and homeless. America advertises the freedom we have to other countries. We welcome people from all areas of the world. Deporting children to an unknown land is not what America originally stood for. It goes against Americas earned legacy. It goes against the American Dream.  Please sign this petition to support our DREAMERS in hopes that they can be apart of the American Dream.
