Stop the deportation of our beloved community member Darlin Navarro Turcios (aka Darlin Mendoza) - A# 07895-8824. Darlin is the father of three U.S.-born children, a citizen step-daughter and spouse of a US citizen who has very severe health problems. Darlin is supported by New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia and the Congress of Day Laborers/New Orleans Worker Center for Racial Justice.
Pare la deportacion de Darlin Navarro Turcios (aka Darlin Mendoza) - A# 07895-8824. Darlin es el padre de 3 hijos ciudadanos, una hijastra ciudadana, y el esposo de una ciudadana con problemas de salud muy graves. Darlin es apoyado por Nuevo Movimiento Santuario de Philadelphia y el Congreso de Jornaleros/El Centro de Trabajadores por Justicia Racial de Nuevo Orleans.
Why is this important?
Darlin's wife and children need him home in Philadelphia. His wife Juana has a severe heart problem that requires open heart surgery and cannot work. Darlin's emotional and economic support for his family - all of whom are citizens - is critical. Darlin is part of the New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia community, and we all want him in Philadelphia where he belongs. Darlin is supported by New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia and the Congress of Day Laborers/New Orleans Worker Center for Racial Justice.
If he is deported, Darlin's wife and children cannot return to Honduras to live with him because of his wife's severe health condition. The government support the family receives because of his wife's medical conditions is not enough to meet the financial needs of the family.
Darlin was involved in a fight and served a 12-month sentence for a misdemeanor charge in a Philadelphia jail. We believe that Darlin already paid for his crime and to deport him back to Honduras not only is a double punishment, but further punishes his family. We believe in second chances for all people and that Darlin has already repented personally and through the criminal justice system. Further punishment goes against our faith values and will only cause more suffering.
Darlin is a loving father and husband who has the support of the Philadelphia community. Please stop his deportation!
