Dear New York member,
A MoveOn member named Alyssa M. Rodriguez recently created a petition on our public petition website entitled "Keep Families Together. Stop Max's Deportation"—and we'd like to know what you think of it.
The petition is addressed to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, and reads:
Don't deport beloved pastor and community member Max Villatoro. Keep him with his family.
Here's what Alyssa wrote about it:
Max was detained Tuesday 3/3/2015 by ICE without being given a chance to say goodbye to his wife and four U.S. Citizen kids. He is not a priority for removal, might be eligible for DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans), and at the very least should be granted enough time to stay to apply once it is available. We need your support to please help keep him here with his family. Keep reading for other ways to act...

1. Call the ICE Field Office at 888-351-4024 (choose option2):
Urge them to grant Max Villatoro (A# 094-338-085) a stay of removal.
Explain why keeping families together and keeping a pastor in his community is important to you.
Point out that Max Villatoro might be eligible for DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans) and that, under current ICE guidelines, he should not be priority for deportation.
NOTE: You may be told your are calling the wrong number, that you are wrong about the facts, o r that you should call a different number. Leave your message as best you can and, if you have time, call any other numbers you are advised to call. These calls do make a difference!
2. Send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
