***UDATE JAGMOHAN WAS RELEASED the week of 5/28/2013 with a one year stay of removal! We’re still fighting to close his case.****
Jagmohan Singh is being detained in California City Detention Center in Bakersfield since February 7th 2013.
Since his detention, Mariana and her children lost their apartment and had to move in with relatives. She works nights and is struggling, despite her recent amputation, to keep her familiy together.
Jagmohan came to the U.S. over 15 years ago from his native country India. In 2002, he married his wife, Mariana, and they now have 3 U.S. citizen children who are 6, 8, and 10 years old.
Jagmohan is a family man who works long hours to provide for his family, and he also help treat his diabetic condition as well as his wife’s–she has had two surgeries due to complications from her diabetes.
Jagmohan works long hours at a convenience store and he made a mistake in not correctly identifying an underage buyer of alcohol. An officer who was behind the young person noticed and gave Jaghoman a citation. When he went to court, he was assigned training classes to take but as he left the courthouse Immigration and Customs Enforcement came and arrested him. Jaghoman has no previous criminal record.
He is the sole income provider for his family and his ill wife depends on him. Since he’s been in detention, his family cannot afford to pay rent and bills and they have lost their apartment and are now living with relatives.
His children miss their father getting them ready for school and taking them every day. Jagmohan needs to be back with his family and should be released immediately as he has no criminal record and is a low priority for deportation.
Please sign to get him out and stop his deportation.
