To: Mexican Consulate in Seattle, Secretaria de Relaciones Exteriores, ICE
Stop Ivan's deportation to Mexico!
Ivan Sanchez has been detained for over 4 years now, just had a second back surgery after falling, twice, while detained at NWDC Tacoma. He's wheelchair bound and suffers many physical and mental illnesses. While in detention Ivan has been a victim of ongoing medical neglect. The Mexican Government should stop their collusion with ICE in deporting gravelly ill people.
We remember the deaths of Jose Martin Delgado Jaimes, Jose Velarde Quinonez and many more the Mexican Consulate in Seattle has helped deport to Mexico, promising healthcare for them only to dump them in a shelter to defend for themselves, and later died due to lack of access to medical care. Ivan was told by the Mexican Consulate staff in Seattle he would be left in Cd. Juarez accompanied by one of the Consulate staff and it's up to him to find his way and locate relatives.
Why is this important?
Ivan should not sent to Mexico to die. There have been too many of these cases already, we must demand ICE and the Mexican Consulate in Seattle stop Ivan's deportation! The Mexican government must stop colluding with ICE in deporting gravely ill people! Ivan should be released immediately so he can receive proper medical care. Free Ivan! Free them all!
