The following information was taken from Presente.org about DREAMer Shamir Ali who is being held in immigration detention in Miami, and faces an imminent threat of deportation to Bangladesh.
Click here to sign the petition that asks the Obama administration to stop his deportation.
Shamir Amirali Ali was picked up during a workplace raid yesterday and was taken into custody by immigration. He is a kind and humble leader and his dream has always been to go to college. Shamir can be deported to Bangladesh as early as today because of a previous deportation order.
Since yesterday, he has been transferred to an immigrant jail and now awaits his deportation to Bangladesh, a place he left as a young child. His only hope is if enough people stand up against his unjust deportation. Please take a moment to sign this petition for the immediate release and cancelation of Shamir's deportation.
