Diabetic Faces Deportation For Calling An Ambulance »

On March 3rd Claudio’s life changed forever. As he sat waiting in his car for his wife and 4 year old son to run some errands he began convulsing. Claudio is a type 2 diabetic, he had recently been put on new medication and was suffering a possible side effect. 

A store employee saw what was happening and called an ambulance. The employee then saw Claudio vomiting on himself and called for an ambulance again. Still no ambulance came. The employee called an ambulance 3 times and 30 minutes later still no ambulance, however a police officer did show up. 

Instead of receiving medical care Claudio was arrested and eventually transferred to ICE for deportation. Since Claudio and his family entered on a visa waiver they have no rights to an immigration judge or hearing. Claudio is being told ‘the next plane for Argentina leaves Tuesday!’

Why did a simple call to an ambulance lead to deportation? We need to keep this family together. 

TAKE ACTION:

1. Sign this Petition

2. Make a Phone Call: Call ICE – John Morton (202.732.3000) 

Sample Script: I am calling to ask that ICE stop the deportation of Claudio Molina (A# 095-472-313). Claudio is type 2 diabetic, and began suffering from convulsions. Someone called an ambulance and instead police showed up and arrested Claudio. Claudio’s only crime is calling an ambulance for help! Stop his deportation.”
