  • Bloggings: Ideal Candidate for Prosecutorial Discretion Facing Imminent Deportation by Matthew Kolken

    Bloggings on Deportation and Removal

    by Matthew Kolken

    Ideal Candidate for Prosecutorial Discretion Facing Imminent Deportation

    The following was taken from DREAMActivist.org:

    Alexander was stopped for speeding and arrested for driving without a license. He has never been arrested before nor had any contact with immigration. 

    Alexander is 31 years old and came to the U.S. from El Salvador 12 years ago. He has a U.S. citizen daughter who is about to turn four years old. 

    He was a TPS (Temporary Protected Status) recipient due to the ongoing violence in his country, but was unable to pay his renewal fee and did not receive any assistance from a lawyer his family hired. 

    Alexander fears going back to El Salvador because of the gang violence and where violence has reached an all-time high in the 20 years after the end of a civil war. 

    Please sign the petition calling for the immediate release of Alexander Antonio Vaquerano (A# 095087074) from Broward Transitional Center and urging the administration to immediately stop his deportation. 

    You may also call John Morton @ 202-732-3000 or 202-732-3100??.

    Sample Script: Hi, Im calling to ask that ICE release Alexander Antonio Vaquerano (A# 095087074) from Broward Transitional Center. Alexander is an ideal candidate for Prosecutorial Discretion according to the Morton Memo. I ask for his immediate release so he may be returned to his young daughter."

      Why isn't someone trying to reopen his removal order? Sounds like he was eligible to apply for nonlpr cancellation and/or de novo review of his TPS? He was ordered removed on 2/29/2012.

      I think that this is the solution, not calling Mr. Morton.
