#Not1More Deportation

Support for Army Veteran Asking for Forgiveness, Battles to Return Home

 Sergeant Arnold Giammarco is a recently deported US Army veteran, who is fighting to reunite with his wife, daughter, and elderly parents in Connecticut.

Mr. Giammarco served in the military as an Army sergeant and lived in the United States for 53 years. He was deported several years after he had been convicted and served time in jail, after he had turned his life around by giving up drugs, marrying, becoming a father, and holding down a stable job.

ct2Giammarco has asked for a pardon, which the Office of the Chief State’s Attorney in Connecticut has decided not to oppose. If he is pardoned, the basis for his deportation would be removed and potentially allow him to come back home.

His wife and family have been fighting for his return for the last 2 years. He has a five-year-old daughter and elderly, ailing parents. Since his deportation, his wife Sharon has been forced to take three jobs to support herself and their five-year old daughter. His mother, 84 years old, suffers from a terminal heart condition and his father, 91 years old, struggles with dementia.

In addition, Mr. Giammarco  has a pending court case regarding his citizenship and his return would allow him to testify.

 
Please support Arnold and his family as they ask for a pardon and asks ICE for a humanitarian parole to be able to be reunited with his family by signing below.

 

Message in support of Giammarco to Immigration and Customs Enforcement

To: Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Boston Field Office

I am writing in support of former Sgt. Arnold Giammarco (A012 013 630), a recently deported US Army veteran, who is fighting to reunite with his wife, daughter, and elderly parents in Connecticut. Mr. Giammarco was deported to Italy almost 2 years ago, and is attempting to come back to his family, and seeking a pardon for drug and larceny convictions, as well as a humanitarian parole that would let him go home for a year.

Mr. Giammarco served in the military as an Army sergeant and lived in the United States for 53 years. The deportation action came years after he had been convicted and served time in jail. Giammarco had turned his life around by giving up drugs, marrying, becoming a father, and holding down a job. His wife and family have been fighting for his return. He has a five-year-old daughter and elderly, ailing parents.

Since his deportation, his wife Sharon Giammarco has been forced to take three jobs to support herself and their five-year old daughter. His mother, 84 years old, suffers from a terminal heart condition and his father, 91 years old, struggles with dementia. Being able to be reunited with his family would allow Mr. Giammarco to testify over a case regarding a pending citizenship application he filed in the 1980s.

I urge you to take all the positive equities in Mr. Giammarco’s case, and take into account the wide-spread support he has from community members like me. Please grant Mr. Giammarco his request to reunite with his family and stop his deportation.
