ICE is Detaining A Georgia Civil Rights Leader. Sign to Release Him!
Release Eleazar MUÑOZ HERNANDEZ, A#216 302 781, from Stewart Detention Center.
Why is this important?
On April 17th the Houston County Sheriff pulled over a long-time civil rights leader in Georgia, Eleazar Muñoz Hernandez, supposedly for running a red light.
He arrested Eleazar for driving without a license and transferred him to Trump's deportation agents who now have him detained in Stewart detention center.
Eleazar has been living in the United States since 2002. He has been living with his wife and son in Warner Robbins for the last 12 years. Since 2010, he has been a leader in the Warner Robbins comité popular, educating neighbors about their rights and mobilizing for immigrant rights events.
We are asking Secretary Kelly for his immediate release so that he can be reunited with his wife and son and return to his volunteer work as a leader in his community.
Eleazar should not be punished for not having a driver's license that the State of Georgia will not give him; he needs to work in order to provide for his family and driving is very necessary in Georgia, especially in rural parts. Driving while undocumented should not be criminalized.
Please sign this petition so that Eleazar can be released and reunited with his 16-year-old son and wife.
