Help stop Julio's deportation!

You can also support by signing this petition to Demand  Due Process for Julio and All Immigrants Detained by ICE! 

Julio Ramirez is a beloved and hardworking business owner, student,  and dear friend who was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on October 15, 2018. He is currently in detention at the Suffolk County ICE Detention Center (South Bay). Julio is originally from Guatemala but Massachusetts is his home. He has been living and contributing to Massachusetts for 14 years and is a law abiding member of our community.

Julio contributes tremendously to the social and economic fabric of his community. He is an active volunteer with the legal nonprofit Justice at Work and participates in many community organizations, including the Brazilian Worker Center, Student Immigrant Movement, and Mass Jobs with Justice. Just days before his detention Julio graduated from the leadership course of the Brazilian Worker Center's Building Justice Committee, which trains leaders in the residential construction industry to support workers efforts to obtain dignity and justice on the job.

Julio’s industrious spirit, desire to learn, and infectious positive energy are assets to our community.He could qualify for bond, but we need your support by donating here and writing letters of support. Please help prevent Julio’s deportation and get him out of detention!
