Jose has been told to report to the immigration office this Tuesday May 19th with a plane ticket, but he is fighting to stay because he know he wont be able to support his children if he is deported.
Ten years ago, Jose was charged with a DWI, and although he completed all the requirements, paid all the fines, and regrets his mistake, immigration enforcement is using this charge to justify his deportation. But Jose the charge does not diminish the commitment and contributions that Jose has made to his community, or the support that he has from his neighbors, friends, and other community leaders.
Please take a moment to call ICE and urge them to use their discretion to stop Jose’s deportation, and allow him to remain with his community.

I am writing as a concerned member of the public regarding the deportation of Mr. Jose Quinde (A 073-536-142). He is scheduled to turn himself in to the ICE office this Tuesday May 19th for removal. I am writing in support of his request for a stay of removal. Mr. Quinde is a responsible father, a good neighbor, and an important member of our community. He is active with his church and local community organizations. A 10 year old DWI conviction – that he has paid restitution for – should not be the only factor considered in his deportation.
I urge you to take into consideration his contributions to the community, his leadership, and the support he has amongst his friends and neighbors.
And please take a minute to make a call: Call John Tsoukaris, Newark Field Office Director, 973-645-3666
