Sign a Letter of Support for a Carwashero in Deportation Proceedings
Please sign a letter of support to help a carwashero who is in deportation proceedings. Carlos Coc is a worker at Millennium Carwash in Venice, CA. He has been organizing with the CLEAN Carwash Campaign for better workplace conditions for over year. While selling fruit in Santa Monica on his day off, he was picked up by Police and flagged by Secure Communities which resulted in an ICE Hold. He was released by ICE from a local detention center and is now in deportation proceedings.
We need to gather as many letters of support as possible to help stop Carlos’ deportation. Both organizations and individuals can sign letters of support. Please return all letters to Rosemarie at email@example.com
On behalf of Carlos and his family, thank you for your support!
SAMPLE LETTER BELOW:
[ORGANIZATION LETTER HEAD OR INDIVIDUAL]
Dear US ICE Chief Counsel Sandra Anderson,
I am writing to urge you to use Prosecutorial Discretion in the case of Carlos Humberto Coc-Boch who is currently at risk of being deported. Carlos is a dedicated father and strong leader in his community, not a “priority” for deportation. Carlos has a 6 year old son, a two year old daughter and 1 month old daughter, all of whom are US Citizens. He is the sole provider for his family and works hard to make sure his family is well taken care of. Removing Carlos would have devastating effects on his family and his community.
Carlos is a leader in his workplace and has fought alongside his co-workers to improve working conditions at the carwash where he works. Carlos contributes greatly to his community by ensuring that carwash workers’ rights are protected. Carlos was placed into deportation proceedings after being stopped for selling fruit on his day off.
Carlos is a hard working father and leader with no criminal record. I urge you to utilize the discretion you have under the law and apply the great resources of this country to keep our communities strong and to maintain family unity. Carlos deserves favorable discretion and his children deserve to be raised by their loving father.
