Pedro should not be separated from his family!

Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.

Pedro Ramirez-Hernandez (A 079 778 198) meets multiple criteria that weigh in favor of an exercise of discretion.

When Congress passes immigration reform, Pedro may qualify for immigration status and eventually citizenship. This is all the more reason for ICE to step in now and grant Pedro deferred action until Congress can finish its job.

Why is this important?

Pedro, a father of four from Elyria, Ohio, is scheduled to be deported this week -- but there is still time for you to help keep him home with his family.

Pedro is the primary caregiver for his stepson, Juan, who has cerebral palsy and is entirely dependent upon others to take care of his basic needs. Pedro was a firefighter in Mexico and came to the United States over 10 years ago in search of a job, and built his life with with his wife, Seleste, in Elyria. He has a kind heart and he is exactly the sort of person America should welcome with open arms, not expel.

Please sign this petition to stop Pedro's deportation -- Pedro is counting on you.

According to policies set by President Obama, there are multiple reasons Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should stop Pedro's deportation – reasons the local ICE office has ignored:

He has resided in the U.S. for many years.
He is married to a U.S. citizen.
He is father of four U.S. citizens.
He is the “primary caretaker of a person with a mental or physical disability.”
ICE already ignored these factors once: they deported Pedro earlier this year, after the Border Patrol mysteriously showed up at his home when he was returning from his son’s daycare. Pedro returned to the United States because he knew that his family was suffering without him and needed his help—everyone in the family, but especially Juan. Now, ICE is preparing to make the wrong decision again. Pedro is currently being held by ICE in a local county jail, and could be deported this week.

When Congress passes immigration reform, Pedro may qualify for immigration status and eventually citizenship. This is all the more reason for ICE to step in now and grant Pedro deferred action until Congress can finish its job.

Help keep Pedro with his family: Please contact ICE today.

  • Try walking in Pedro's shoes......what would YOU do?
  • I personally know Seleste, as she is my niece through marriage. I know for a fact the struggles Seleste has had to endure due to the lack of support from her son Juan Carlos' paternal family. Her dedication to her children, initially as a single mother and now as a two parent family structure is comendable. Through her union with Pedro and his support morally, emotionally as well as the loving and caring father that he is to all the children but especially with regards to the care of his step...
