To whom it may concern:
[PLEASE INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:]
My congregation/organization and I are gravely concerned about Mr. RoxRoy Salmon’s appointment for deportation tomorrow, 8/18, at 9am.
I understand that you are working to delay this appointment and to push for deferred action on the case.
Mr. Salmon, a 32-year resident of this country, is a father, grandfather, husband, son, and brother of U.S. citizens. His children and sick wife need him, and his community leadership and moral character have garnered overwhelming community support and media coverage.
Despite this, the Immigration Judge could not grant any relief, because under the law, she had no discretion to prevent the removal order. Only ICE has that power.
ICE is accountable only to you and I implore you to exercise the breadth of your influence in this case.
Several hundred community members like us are waiting by the phone to hear that RoxRoy will not be torn from his family and his community.
[Use your organizational letterhead (INCLUDING ADDRESS AND CONTACT INFORMATION) and state your leadership role.]
[FEEL FREE TO ADD ANY PERSONAL DETAILS ABOUT ROXROY AND HIS FAMILY.]
