Another DREAMer about to be deported


Shamir is a Florida DREAM Act-eligible student and member of Students Working for Equal Rights, who is curently detained in Broward Transitional Center since last week and is facing deportation right now.

Originally from Bangladesh, Shamir came to this country with his mom when he was only 7 years old. Shamir’s mother was deported three years ago after being involved in a car accident of which she was the victim, and since then he was forced to take care of himself. He was able to study for more than 1 year at the Palm Beach State College, but he had to quit to be able to make a living.

Last Wednesday, Shamir was picked up by immigration at a workplace raid. His situation is dire because of an old deportation order that became active when his mom’s asylum petition was denied.

Another broken promise by Obama’s Administration

As a DREAM Act-eligible student who has no criminal record, FLIC and SWER requested that ICE execute prosecutorial discretion and release him. Not surprisingly, but certainly outrageous, Marc Moore, Director of ICE’s Field Office in Miami denied our request to allow Shamir to stay in the U.S.

Moore’s action goes against President Obama’s promise to stop the deportation of DREAM Act-eligible youth. This is a slap in the face to all immigrants throughout the country, including Latinos.

We need your help!

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to stop Shamir’s deportationPresente.org will deliver it tomorrow at ICE’s headquarters in Washington.

Join us on Tuesday for a protest at Broward Transitional Center in Pompano Beach. Families and other FLIC members will hold a protest and press conference to ask for Shamir’s release and to share the stories of other detainees who, like Shamir, haven’t been granted prosecutorial discretion as Obama promised. Many have been detained for weeks and months, with no other reason than to feed the for-profit prison business.

Check out all the details for tomorrow’s action in Facebook. Other 8 cities throughout the country are joining this as a National Day of action called “Another Broken Promise. We Are All Shamir”.

One thought on “Another DREAMer about to be deported

  1. For a very long time liberal “arguments” were part of the mainstream discussion only because conservatives (and moderates) actually took them seriously, as if unable to believe someone would put forward a national “narrative” composed solely of nonsensical and pathetic balderdash. But rather than taking advantage of that the liberals just kept piling on more nonsense fully expecting that, with the aid of extreme left wing media, they will continue on the same road. nBy now, with the election of a totally unqualified person as a president of the country, a person who run his entire campaign and subsequent term in office, entirely on the premise of this nonsensical liberal narrative, this has reached a critical mass and is increasingly no longer treated as a serious argument by all, except the most gullible, conservatives and moderates. You can see this in many forms, from the total rejection of Obama’s childishly naive and destructive agenda by non-liberal legislators, to large outpouring of support for the wrongly accused and virtually lynched, “white Hispanic” George Zimmerman, to widespread ridicule of Cherokee Woman “Stands with a Pout” Warren claims that she did not use affirmative action pretense to advance her career.
