***UPDATE: On Tuesday, November 4, Chicago ICE Director Ricardo Wong denied Wilson’s Stay of Removal. His family has appealed to ICE HQ in Washington, DC. Take action to stop his deportation by signing below.***
Wilson Gomez-Pú (A077-662-858) was taken from his home, his partner, and two U.S. citizen children in August 2013 on a thirteen year old order of deportation.
Wilson has called the United States home since 2001 and has not been convicted of any violent crimes. He is the primary breadwinner for his family of four: Josefa, his partner, and their two U.S. citizen children, Wilson, Jr. (age 11) and Dalila (age 7).
Wilson is the primary breadwinner for his family and his year-long detention has severely lowered his family’s quality of life. Wilson’s partner – Josefa – has had to go without medication for her chronic illness and has struggled to find odd jobs. In the past 12 months Josefa has had to rely on the kindness of strangers to put food on the table, and is now behind with the rent.
Wilson is an asylum seeker and does not pose a threat to public safety, he’s needed at home with his sick partner and their two U.S. citizen children. His partner Josefa has been a leading advocate in the fight to stop deportations, will Chicago ICE Director Wong and the Obama administration deport her partner?
Please sign below to stop Wilson’s deportation.
I write in support of Wilson Romeo Gomez-Pú (A077-662-858), a father of two U.S. citizen children. Prior to his detention he was the primary breadwinner for his family. His family is now behind on the rent and is facing eviction. Please release Wilson and grant his stay request. Please use the discretion you have to keep this family together.
Mr. Gomez- Pú has called the United States home since 2001 and has not been convicted of any violent crimes. He is the primary breadwinner for his partner Josefa, and their two U.S. citizen children, Wilson, Jr. (age 11) and Dalila (age 7).
Mr. Gomez- Pú has been detained by your agency since August 2013 on a thirteen year old order of deportation.
Since Wilson’s detention, Josefa has taken every job she can find but is still unable to afford her diabetes medication. Josefa was able to secure employment two days a week, but has had to rely on the kindness of strangers to put food on the table and is behind on her rent.
Mr. Gomez- Pú’s continued detention severely risks the well-being of his two U.S. citizen children and ill partner. Mr. Gomez-Pú is not a threat to public safety or a flight risk, he needs to be home with his children. The plight of Mr. Gomez- Pú’s family was highlighted on national media on Sunday, June 15: www.bit.ly/detainedfathers2014
I ask that you approve Mr. Gomez-Pu’s Stay Request and release Mr. Gomez-Pú immediately.
