Bloggings on Deportation and Removal

by Matthew Kolken

Obama Administration Set to Deport Father of Autistic Child Today.

Alfonso Aquino Gonzalez is married to a United States citizen.  They have an 8-year-old United States citizen child who has recently been diagnosed with autism.  About eight months ago, right after the Obama administration started employing "smart" immigration enforcement strategies, ICE took Alfonso into immigration custody by cuffing him in front of his wife, and daughter.  ICE has held Alfonso at the Broward Detention Center for 11 months.  He is now facing imminent deportation from the United States.


From the information provided, it appears that Alfonso has no underlying criminal grounds of removal, and has never been arrested for any criminal activity, yet the Obama administration has refused to exercise the Morton memo despite substantial conformity.

I urge you to take immediate action.
