Dear fellow MoveOn Member,
Bakhodir Madjitov, a father of three young boys, is scheduled to be deported after U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raided his home without a warrant. He has lived in the United States for 13 years.
Bakhodir was taken into custody by ICE on December 22, 2017. He's been in custody for more than 700 days without being charged with a crime.1
Bakhodir's wife Madina was 39 weeks pregnant with a complicated pregnancy when ICE entered their home, and their third child was born a week after ICE detained his father. Bakhodir's children and wife are suffering, and we're concerned that he may be deported soon.
Prior to being detained, Bakhodir supported his family as a home health aide working with a government-issued ID.
In the last two years, ICE has moved Bakhodir around the country to detention centers in Massachusetts, Alabama, New Jersey, and Louisiana.
Madina and her lawyers are concerned that ICE might be planning to deport Bakhodir by the end of the year, even though he has an active appellate case pending.
Connecticut values families. We want Madina, Bakhodir, and the boys to stay together in the United States.
Join us in telling ICE and Connecticut representatives that Bakhodir should be home with his wife and sons!
