Pedro Gutierrez Asks President Obama to Defer His Deportation

| | Comments ()

Via Vivirlatino comes news that Dreamer Pedro Gutierrez, who was due to present himself to ICE today to be deported, was granted a 30-day extension. Pedro's statement:

I now realize that the only way for me to be able to stay in Arizona, my home, is for President Obama to allow for me to stay. It is his choice whether I am deported to a country I do not know or if I am allowed to stay in Arizona and give back to my community. I ask President Obama to please let me serve this nation.

This is exactly right. At this point, it is President Obama's choice whether to deport Pedro and other Dreamers in removal proceedings, or to stand with the immigrant community on the side of justice.

Which will he choose?
