Stop Separating Families: Stop Felix Garcia’s Deportation!
Donald Trump’s Deportation Force is about to deport Felix, a hard-working family man with no criminal record who has lived in this country for over 20 years. Felix is a valued member of his community in Georgia and should be allowed to remain in the country with his wife and three daughters.
We demand that ICE stop Felix’s deportation right now!
Why is this important?
Felix Garcia is a longtime Georgia resident, an aspiring American, and the father of three daughters, including a medical student and a young U.S. citizen. Earlier this year, during a regular annual check-in, Felix was detained by ICE with no explanation.
Felix has lived in the U.S. since 1995 and has no criminal record. Despite all of his contributions and efforts, Felix has never had a path to legal status in the United States, and now he faces permanent separation from his family.
ICE under the Obama Administration did not see Felix as a threat or a deportation priority, and allowed him to stay with his family as long as he checked in annually. But under the Trump Administration, parents like Felix who have done nothing besides live in the country without papers are being taken away.
Felix is an accountant and originally came to the United States seeking asylum. His oldest daughter Belsy is a Dreamer and medical student in Chicago who plans to return to Georgia as a physician and work in underserved communities.
Atlanta ICE Office Director Sean Gallagher can stop Felix's deportation. Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) can use the power of his office to draw attention to Felix’s case. Tell Director Gallagher and Rep. Loudermilk to use their power to make sure Felix stays with his family!
We need to do everything we can to stop Donald Trump's unchained ICE agents from taking Felix away from his home and family in Georgia. Sign this petition and urge Rep. Loudermilk and Director Gallagher to take action and stop Felix's deportation.
