Keep families together: Stop Max's deportation

Max Villatoro is a beloved father, pastor, and community member in Iowa City, Iowa, who could be deported this weekend—unless we fight back. Can you add your name and tell ICE to keep Max with his family?

Dear MoveOn member,

I'm Alyssa M. Rodriguez, a MoveOn member in Iowa City, Iowa, and I started a petition to the St. Paul ICE Field Office Director, the National Director of ICE Sarah R. Saldana, the United States Congress, and President Barack Obama, which says:

Don't deport beloved pastor and community member Max Villatoro. Keep him with his family.

Max Villatoro is a pastor at First Mennonite Church in Iowa City. He was detained Tuesday, March 3 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 and he is definitely not a threat to national security, border security, or public safety.

Max’s U.S.-citizen children belong together with their father, and Max belongs here in Iowa City with his congregation. He is the type of person who should get a second chance, not deported.

We need your support to help keep him here with his family. Please sign this petition urging ICE to grant Max Villatoro a stay of removal.
