Rawlins Cummings was born in Trinidad and Tobago. He came to this country at the age of 4 in 1981 and settled in New York. He met his future wife, Chelsea, and the two of them moved to Providence to attend Johnson and Wales University. They have been together ever since. They have a 16-year-old son who attends ACE and an 11-year-old who just graduated from MLK. Both children were born in RI. Rawlins picked his son up at MLK every day and would often ask the teacher how he was doing and make sure he was behaving. He is a dedicated father who wants the best for his family. Rawlins is a green card holder and has been for 23 years.

On May 22nd Rawlins went to the DMV to apply for a motorcycle license. To his dismay he was detained, and ICE was called. When they arrived, Rawlins was told that he had missed a court date in February which had been pushed up from November of 2019. Rawlins was never aware the date had been changed which ICE has confirmed because the notifications had been returned. The Cummings family had recently moved and although they changed their address with the post office and the Department of Immigration and Customs the notifications were not forwarded. To make matters worse the Department of Immigration and Customs does not communicate directly with the Immigration Courts.

Rawlins has been held since May 22nd which is a financial and emotional burden on his family. We are asking for donations to defray legal fees and ensure that the family stays current on their mortgage payment and other bills. Without Rawlins’ income this has been a stretch.
