Gustavo's deportation has been stopped, as detailed in the following e-mail, sorry for being so late to forward.


Well what can we say other than congratulations on pulling off another win.

On Friday Gustavo was told by ICE's chief counsel in Oregon that they wouldn't be deporting him, instead his case would be dropped. Don't doubt yourself'; this would not have happened if it wasn't for your support. Just last Wednesday Gustavo's deportation officer reminded him to be ready for a Friday deportation. Things changed because you took action. Gustavo will now be able to graduate from high school and hopefully one day realize his DREAM of becoming a firefighter.

Thank you. Do you think we can make one more holiday miracle possible?

Meet Cesar. Cesar has been detained in Calhoun County, Michigan for almost four months now. Actually Cesar's four month anniversary will be the same day of his 25th Birthday. Can you imagine spending your birthday in an immigration detention center? Can you imagine spending four months locked up for nothing other than wanting a better future? Well that's the position Cesar finds himself in right now and we need your help to get him out. Will you join us in making 100 calls to free Cesar Montoya from ICE detention?

If you are down to help us free Cesar we need you to do the following things:

Change your facebook profile picture to the image clicking here. Each day as we meet our call-in goals we'll be raising the stakes.
Sign the petition asking President Obama to hold true to his word and grant deferred action to DREAMer Cesar.
Make one phone call to ICE asking that they grant deferred action for Cesar. You can follow the sample call-in script below.
Call-in number: 800-394-5855 or 202-732-3000

"Hi, I was calling to ask that Cesar Montoya (A#200-297-690) be granted deferred action. Cesar is a hardworking student and farmworker. He has spent four months in detention. He is DREAM Act eligible, I thought Obama said he wasn't deporting DREAMers? Please let Cesar go home for the holidays!"

Daniel we're on a roll here, do you think we can help Cesar the same way we did David and Gustavo? Our goal for today is 100 calls for Cesar, as soon as we reach that goal we can raise the stakes. After you make a call reply to this email so we can keep a tally.

Thank you,

Mohammad Abdollahi
