Update: Juan was released from detention and is back home with his family, thanks to all your support! He is still fighting his case, so we will be in touch when he needs your support in the future. Thanks for calling, signing, and sharing!
Juan Roberto de Leon Segura (A#205587448) has spent most of his life in the U.S. He attended high school here, fell in love, had children, and got engaged. This summer, Juan should be at home planning his wedding with his fiancee and taking care of his daughters. Instead, he is held in Eloy detention center, facing deportation for working to support his children.
Juan is engaged to Monique, a U.S. citizen. Together, they have two U.S. citizen children, Jannea, 8, and Bella, 2. When Juan was in high school, he was a dedicated student with high grades. Jannea follows in her dad’s footsteps, excelling in school.
It’s getting harder for Jannea the longer her dad is detained. She has nightmares about the day ICE took her dad away and misses him desperately. Juan has worked hard to take care of his daughters, and should be free to raise his little girls. Working is not a crime!
Tell ICE to let Juan go! Not one more worker deported!
To: John Sandweg, National ICE Acting Director; Andrew Lorenz-Strait, National ICE Public Advocate
I am writing to request that you immediately release Juan Roberto de Leon Segura (A#205-587-448) and close his deportation case. Juan has been in the U.S. for most of his life. He has no criminal charges other than those stemming from work, and no prior deportations.
Juan is engaged to Monique Mary Mendez, a U.S. citizen. Together, they have two U.S. citizen children, Jannea (8) and Bella (2). When Juan was in high school in Phoenix, he was an excelling student. He has now taught Jannea to excel in school as well.
Juan works hard to support his family. Working is not a crime! Juan should be at home, preparing for his wedding and raising his daughters. Please take immediate action to free Juan and close his deportation case.
I await your response.
