Sample Script: "I am calling to ask that you release Marvin Corado (A# 136-191-190) from Broward Transitional Center in Florida and stop his deportation. Marvin has been living in the U.S. for the past 12 years and has a 5 year old U.S. citizen daughter who will suffer if her dad is deported. Marvin is not a priority for deportation and should be allowed to stay in the U.S. with his family. Release Marvin from detention."


Sign the petition here!!!


To Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, John Morton; and Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano:

We, the undersigned, call on the immediate release of Marvin Corado-Cruz (A# 136-191-190) from Broward Transitional Center in Florida and urge ICE to stop his deportation.

On January 4, 2012, Marvin was stopped by a police officer while on his way to work to make ends meet for his family. Marvin was arrested for driving without a license. He was taken to Broward Transitional Center in Florida, where he is currently being held. Marvin has been ordered deported by June 4th and can be removed from the country any day now.

Marvin is originally from Guatemala and has been living in the United States for the past 12 years. He is currently 28 years old and has a 5 year old U.S. citizen daughter named Madelyn. Marvin also has 2 younger U.S. citizen brothers and a mother who is a legal permanent resident. Marvin has also been a member of the church Segadores de Vida for the past four years and is loved by his community. Marvin’s daughter and Marvin’s mom have suffered a lot of emotional distress since Marvin was detained.

According to the memo issued by John Morton, Marvin is not a priority for deportation and should be granted favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion. Marvin is an excellent father whose only wish is to raise his daughter with his wife and family. Madelyn, Marvin’s 5 year old, has already suffered 4 long months without her father and the entire family is suffering. Madelyn deserves to grow up with her father by her side.

We, the undersigned, urge you to release Marvin Corado-Cruz from Broward Transitional Center immediately and stop his deportation.
