#Not1More Deportation

Georgia Father & DACA-applicant in Detention for Driving Without a License

Aldo Baby


Aldo has been stopped by police twice, and only charged with driving without a license. The second time he was stopped, he missed the court for the first charge, and was convicted of “failing to appear in court.”

Although the judge gave him 11-month probation, instead of being released he was sent to immigration custody and placed in deportation. He is now being held at the Fulton County detention center.

Aldo has lived in the U.S. since he was 14 years old, and is applying for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). He is also the father of a one-year old US citizen.

I am writing to call for the release of Aldo Jimenez-Cordova (A 204.752.614) from Irwin County Detention Center. Mr. Jimenez-Cordova came to the United States in 2005, when he was 14 years old, and he is currently awaiting response for his application for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Mr. Jimenez-Cordova also has a one year old baby, who is a United States citizen.

Mr. Jimenez-Cordova has resided in the United States for the last 9 years. On May 27th, Fulton County detained him for driving without a license, and set court for June 2nd. Before he could appear in court, he was again arrested for driving without a license in Dekalb County and missed his first court date. He was charged with failing to appear.

Mr. Jimenez-Cordova was given 11 months of probation. However, instead of being released, DeKalb County placed an ICE hold on him, and turned him over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement Custody (ICE). Mr. Jimenez-Cordova is currently detained at the Irwin County Detention Center.

Mr. Jimenez-Cordoba should not be considered priority for deportation. He has lived in the country for 9 years, he came to the United States at the age of 14, he is the father of a United States citizen child, he is not a threat to public safety or national security, and has no significant or violent criminal history. His only charges are for failing to appear in court and driving without a license, the circumstances of which have been described.

As a community member, I urge you to use prosecutorial discretion to release Mr. Jimenez-Cordova and review his application for DACA.

Thank you,
