Demand Justice for Migrant Workers Reportedly Killed by ICE Officers

Target: Thomas Homan, Director of Immigration Customs and Enforcement

Goal: Demand full penalization of the officers who allegedly  killed a migrant couple in a vehicular pursuit.

A couple was killed in a fatal crash after reportedly being intimidated by immigration officials. Shortly after Santos Hilario Garcia and Marcelina Garcia Profecto dropped their children off at school, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement vehicle reportedly began pursuing them without warning and caused the couple to fatally crash into a pole. The ICE officers have allegedly made several false claims that are directly contradicted by security footage of the incident. Officers reportedly claimed their lights weren’t on, when the footage shows the opposite.

This incident comes after a spike in immigration busts by ICE officials targeting Hispanic communities, particularly families. A spokesperson for ICE called this an isolated incident, but that’s unacceptable, as there is standard procedure for these arrests and there should never be a scenario in which a child is orphaned by law enforcement. Sign the petition below to demand justice for the Garcia family.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Director Homan,

There should never be a situation in which officers intimidate possible suspects into accidentally killing themselves, yet your officers who allegedly did this exact thing in the case of  Santos Hilario Garcia and Marcelina Garcia Profecto walk free. There are standard procedures for detaining and arresting those suspected of immigration, and your officers reportedly unequivocally failed to follow those procedures, then allegedly lied about their actions.

There needs to be a change in the culture of ICE’s policing. Officers seem eager to break apart families while intentionally causing trauma. We can have effective policing without intimidation or violence; we just need to enact these changes. Stand on the right side of history and demand these officers be reprimanded to the fullest extent of the law for their reported actions.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Dear Director Homan,
    ICE officers just follow the instructions of “Satan” who instructs them to ‘persecute’ all latinos who left their countries looking for a better and more secure future, willing to do any job that no unemployed ‘american born’ person would even think of doing! Justice for them!

    And when all the latinos are ‘deported’ who is going to work on the fields? Where will everyone get help at home? People working at Convalescent Homes, janitors, car wash, mechanics, cooks, dishwashers, etc., etc.
    We have to give them credit for what they do!
