We just found out that Wasington, a HIV+ Brazilian DREAMer, is set to be deported this Thursday at 9:00pm. Wasington has been detained for 4-months inside the KROME detention center in Florida. He was detained while on probation for entering what he thought was an abandoned building.
Wasington’s partner has been in touch with Senator Nelson’s office about his case, however time is running out. We need Senator Nelson’s office to move now and demand that ICE release Wasington from Detention.
Wasington’s health has really deteriorated in detention; he’s recently developed white spots all over his body and his cell count is through the roof. Several HIV experts have written to ICE warning them of the dangers of not providing Wasington with treatment.
TAKE ACTION: MAKE A CALL
“Hi, I was calling to ask for the Senator to take immediate action on Wasington’s deportation. Wasington is set to be deported this Thursday at 9pm. He is HIV+ and he’s in real bad shape. Will the Senator call John Morton and ask that he stop Wasington’s deportation and let him go?”
Optional talking points:
- Wasington is a DREAMer; he’s been living here since he was 12.
- HIV experts agree; Wasington needs to be released so he can get long-term treatment.
- Obama said he wouldn’t deport DREAMers.
After you call please reply to this email so we can keep track of how many calls we’ve made. Thanks.
