Benito has been in the U.S. for 12 years. His only mistake is a charge for driving under the influence from 2012. The charge was minor, and he received no jail time. He has been a responsible father, a hard worker, and a good community member.
On May 7th Benito will be in immigration court in San Francisco. There, he will present the signatures below in support of his case. We are also urging the Director of the local ICE Field office to use prosecutorial discretion to release Benito to his family.
To: Craig Meyer, ICE Field Director
I am writing in support of the release of Mr. Benito Flores-Quintero (A# 206-350-576). He has been in the U.S. for 12 years and has ties to the community including his local church. He has a U.S. citizen wife and three U.S. citizen children ages 4, 7, and 8 who all miss him dearly. They have not seen their father since October of last year and have been struggling to understand the situation.
Mr. Flores-Quintero is the sole provider for his family and his detention has caused great hardship on his family who were evicted from their home in Madera, California and were temporarily homeless.
I urge you to use prosecutorial discretion to release Mr. Flores-Quintero from detention.
