Meet Stanley. He’s been detained since September 5th at Pike County Correctional Facility here in Pennsylvania. While in detention an old hand injury contracted a staff infection, and Stanley was placed in medical isolation causing him to have a nervous breakdown. He has also been suffering stomach illnesses on and off as a result of the lack of hygiene in the facility.
Stanley is 51 years old. He came to the United States in 1991 from Suriname. He is a model student at Lehigh Carbon Community College, where he is pursuing an Aviation Science degree. Stanley holds a 3.5 GPA and has made the Dean’s List. He has taken his Private Pilot Certification test, and he is currently working on his ATP/ADX test, which is the equivalent of the Airline Commercial Captain test.
Stanley does not have a criminal record. He did not even know he had a pending debt. Stanley was detained while walking his stepdaughter to school for failing to pay his debt with the bonds company. He was ordered deported in 2009 after an immigration court denied his petition for asylum. According to the policies announced by ICE Director John Morton, Stanley is a low priority case and should not be deported.
Take Action – Call on Senator Casey to Act:
“Hi, I was calling to ask the Senator to take immediate action to stop the deportation of Stanley Moriah (A# 070-647-988). Stanley has no criminal record and even works as a Fire Safety Director; he is an asset to our community. Stanley is a low-priority deportation and President Obama said he would be stopping these kinds of cases. Will the Senator call the ICE director and ask for him to let Stanley go? Can the Senator issue a letter of support for this family? Thank you.”
After you call please leave a comment here so I can keep track of how many calls are being made and what the office is saying.
