Petition to John Faso

Support the Clean Dream Act (Syracuse - Faso)

The fate of two million undocumented youth is at risk if Congress does not pass the Clean Dream Act, House Bill 3440. Please urge New York Congressman John Faso, who is still undecided, to co-sponsor this bill. We currently have 200 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives and we only need 18 more. DREAMers are our neighbors and 42,000 live in New York state. If Congress does not protect them, starting March 6, they will begin to fall out of status at a rate of 1,400 a week, every week, for the next two years. The #CleanDreamAct will provide a path to citizenship for immigrant youth who are a vital part of our communities. Tell your congressman to reject any attempts to use immigrant youth as a bargaining chip for more money for Trump’s mass deportation force, which will tear apart our families and communities.  HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO: 1.

Petition to Immigration, Customs and Enforcement (ICE); and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)

Release DeJuan Callender from Immigration Detention; and approve his Waiver Application

DeJuan Callender is a loving father and husband who has lived in the United States for 38 years.  On July 1st, 2015 ICE agents took DeJuan into custody as he sat in a car in his driveway with his then 5 year old US citizen son.  DeJuan came to the United States from Barbados as a Legal Permanent Resident with his family when he himself was 5 years old.  He remains detained in Orange County Jail in upstate NY despite receiving an unconditional Executive Pardon from Governor Cuomo in December 2016.  “DeJuan’s story” has been covered extensively by News12 Westchester Hudson Valley. DeJuan’s Story: DeJuan experienced severe depression when his mother passed away suddenly when he was 18, and he spent several years going down the wrong path, ultimately being convicted of selling counterfeit credit cards in 1999, and shoplifting personal care items from a drugstore in 2002.  As a result, DeJuan was placed into deportation proceedings in 2005; however, the final deportation order was never executed by the Government.  DeJuan had been working and paying taxes the entire time before he was detained by ICE. At no time was he a fugitive, or in hiding. DeJuan turned his life around and lived without incident for the past 15 years.  His US citizen son is now 7 years old. DeJuan and his son were inseparable before he was cruelly snatched away – right in front of him.  They miss each other desperately.   DeJuan is also happily married to a US citizen.  We met in 2013 and have been in a stable loving relationship ever since.  DeJuan has always worked hard to support his family.   Most recently, since 2007 he was a doorman at a property in Westchester where he remains a beloved employee by his residents.  They have written letters of support for his petition for a Stay of Removal, for his Pardon application, for his Request for Release from Detention, and for his Waiver application. DeJuan's rehabilitation was recognized, and rewarded when DeJuan was issued an unconditional Pardon from Governor Cuomo on December 30, 2016 for his 2002 conviction in order to provide immigration relief, yet ICE refuses to release DeJuan from Immigration Detention. In a letter dated July 11th , 2017, DHS denied DeJuan’s application for a Waiver that would have allowed him to obtain a new Green Card.  The denial stated that he had not shown proof that he was ‘rehabilitated from criminal activity’.  Evidence submitted with his Waiver application included his Pardon from the Governor.  We also included many letters of support from friends, family and residents of the property he worked at. These letters detailed what a good person he is; honest, trustworthy and kind.  Finally, we also submitted a report from a noted forensic psychiatrist who upon examination of DeJuan determined that he was ‘fully rehabilitated.’  This evidence seems to have been ignored. Please sign this petition today to help secure DeJuan’s immediate release from Immigration Detention and the approval of the Appeal we have submitted for his Waiver application Sincerely, Dina Briggs

Petition to Missouri State Senate, Missouri State House

Petition to Act - Protect Missouri DACA Recipients

Dear State Senators and Missouri Representatives: We, the students of the University of Missouri, Columbia, believe that our campus should serve as a safe community for all students regardless of their immigration status. We particularly ask that you express commitment to the protection of all students, especially those who are recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). DACA has been rescinded, making students once again vulnerable. This includes the risk of deportation, loss of their jobs, scholarships, and driver’s licenses. We currently have 35 students who benefit from DACA in the overall University of Missouri System. The time to act to protect our students is right now. Through months of dedication, we gained hundreds of signatures to protect the current 35 students who benefit from DACA in the overall UM System. Students at universities and colleges statewide who have DACA should not have to fear about losing their education or about their safety on campus. Let’s show them — and all students — that we are a community that supports them and that they’ll always be welcome here. We emphasize that this will not only affect students in the UM system but also their families. People’s lives are at stake and we can not stand by and watch them suffer. To ensure the safety of our fellow students of all immigration statuses, we request the following steps to be taken: We request that you publicly give a statement speaking on your stance about DACA. We request that you advocate for Missouri and all DACA recipients by meeting with other representatives, senators, and congress members to discuss ways in which DACA can be protected. We strongly urge you to take action to ensure that Missouri supports to keep DACA in place in the upcoming vote in March. We emphasize again that this affects our community deeply and we hope that you are on board to keep this community safe. Sincerely, The Association of Latin@ American Students
