Emergency Rally to Free Amado Hernandez and Reunite Him with His Family

Could be deported any minute!

image


BRADENTON, FL.—Community members are holding a rally Friday to stop the deportation of Amado Hernandez. His US Citizen daughter, legal permanent resident wife, and his community need him to stay in the United States. Church members and others are coming to support the family in their time of need.

WHAT: Rally to Free Amado Hernandez

WHEN: Friday May 2, 2014, 7 P.M.

WHERE:Iglesia de Dios Pentecostes,1100 44th Ave E., Bradenton, FL 34208

Once again, a Florida family has been torn apart by the breakneck pace of deportations under the Obama Administration. No one knows better than this Bradenton family the rift between the Obama Administration says, and what it does on immigration enforcement.  

In July 2012, Amado was detained for driving without a license. Despite being a low priority case, and despite the extreme hardship his family would face without him, Amado was snatched away from his family and deported in 2013. Despite a prosecutorial discretion request based on the Morton Memo guidelines being filed on his behalf, ICE deported him. Doing what any good father would do, he returned to support his family.

Amado Hernandez came to the United States when he was just 17 years old. He was detained upon arrival, released, and soon thereafter, was granted a work permit. Because he was a minor at the time, Amado was not the recipient of a notice to appear in court that was issued in his name. When his court date came without his knowledge, he was ordered deported in absentia. 

Never being told about his day in court, Amado moved on with his life. He married his childhood sweetheart, Wendy, a legal permanent resident, with whom he has been for nearly ten years. Amado and Wendy are the proud parents of a US citizen baby girl, Gianella, who depends on him for emotional and financial support. 

Amado has never committed any crime during his life in the United States; he has been an upstanding member of his community, involved in community sports and been a star player in several local soccer teams.

Being a responsible father should not be a crime.  Wendy will not be able to subsist without him much longer, placing Gianella’s well-being in jeopardy.  The Bradenton community is rallying around Amado and his family to ask that discretion is granted in this case and calling upon Senators Nelson and Rubio to step in and aid in reuniting this family.

From Joselyn Rodriguez, Florencio’s daughter: The struggle is real guys. Not only as a daughter, as a sister, but as a Soldier. My father, like many and few, envisioned a prosperous future for my brothers, sisters and I. He has sacrificed his life for my family, as do I for my country. His fate and every single one of his children’s future is in the hands of men who’s freedom I fight for. Florencio Rodriguez, my father, is currently detained in San Diego, awaiting verdict. He will ether be reunited with our family, or be sent to Mexico leaving his life and family behind. I’m a resilient individual and nothing will stop me, but a huge weight could be taken off my ruck if only my dad could be home with the loves of my life. Please help me bring my dad home. I will never take any of anyone’s time if I didn’t truly believe this was possible. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity for my family and I.
