Dreamer Near Deportation, Please Help! His Name is MINH



Dreamer in Trouble

Your Help Could Make the Difference!


Dream-Act, United-We-Dream, Action-Dream-Team, Campaign-For-American-Dream

This young Dreamer has been through the gauntlet!  Minhaz’s father lost his asylum case, reportedly as a result of ineffective assistance of counsel.  On november 4th, Minhaz was required to wear an ankle bracelet.  He has been ordered to present a one way plane ticket back to Bangladesh, a city many of us might like to visit.  Even Minhaz.   But just visit.  The Dream student has not been there for 20 years!



Please take the following action:

CALL:  Department of Homeland Security,

and ask if Janet is there.  You know, the x-Arizona governor, Janet Napolitano?  Her number is 202.282.8495.


Please also call John Morton and ask him to enforce the terms of his memorandum to ICE in which he required ICE to review current Dream Act Student cases for deferred action!

John Morton (202.732.3000)

As a suggested script, “Hi, I am calling to ask that DREAM-ACT eligible student Minhaz Khan whose alien identification number is A- 70663420, be allowed to stay in the United States.  This Dreamer came to the US when he was only four years old!  His father was deported, and was subsequently murdred as a result of his political affiliations.  Let me tell you about Minhaz.  He is a college graduate and wants to make a difference in the US.  After all, this is his home.  Please don’t deport this bright young man!”


You can also sign the petiton:


Will any of this make a difference?  One thing is sure!  If you don’t call, nothing will change!  We need your support, a Dreamer needs your help, America needs your voice!

ICE Ignores Morton Guidelines For Deportation, Races Teacher Out Of Country

High School Spanish Teacher


No Criminal History

Prostate Cancer Survivor

Married US Citizen

Current Work Authorization


Five year old step-daughter cries for her “Papa”



Esterny Ironche, an immigrant from Spain, was deported by ICE last week despite new rules which should have allowed him to stay. According to the Houston Chronicle, despite being directed to do so, ICE has not started to review thousands of cases to determine which immigrants qualify for new guidelines from an August 18th memorandum handed down by John Morton, Director of ICE.  The guidelines allow prosecutors “discretion” in the way they handle cases.  Prosecutors can choose not to prosecute cases which pose little security risk.  Factors to be considered include age, Ironche was 55, whether the immigrant has a criminal history, Ironche had none, the immigrant’s health status, Ironche  and ties the immigrant has with this country and his home country.  Marriage to a US citizen was a strong factor in Irounche’s favor.



According to the Houston Chronicle, it is as if ICE never heard of the letter from it’s director.   The agency is ignoring the guidelines that could save thousands of immigrants the agony of broken families, as ICE continues hustling as many immigrants over the border as it possibly can. Last year, ICE deported a record number of people, just under 500,000.  Presumably, the agency is waiting for instructions on how to evaluate cases before it begins to review an approximate 300,000 immigrants in the process of being deported.

Sha’Vonne Ironche, Isterny’s wife, was distraught after receiving a phone call from her husband who was placed into ICE custody on August 5th.   Last Tuesday, Immigration officials told the imprisoned school teacher to have his bag packed by 5:00 that night because he was being deported.  Upon hearing the news, Sha’Vonne fainted and had to be taken home by her mother who was called by school offiicials.



Ironche taught high school Spanish under a current work permit which had been renewed for years.  He came to the US legally but over-stayed his visa 15 years ago.  In 1995, he applied for a green card after marrying another girl.  The green card application was denied after the couple later divorced.  Ironche married Sha’Vonne in 2009.  Officials grilled Ironche about the marriage when a new green card application was submitted in 2010.




Esterney Ironche was a great American who contributed to his students, his community and his church.  He posed no threat to his community and in fact was a credit to his community.   How many Spanish students would relish the chance to study under a professor whose learned to speak in Spain?  Ironche’s desperate fight to remain an American was lost when a rogue agency blazed forward with it’s own agenda, more concerned with performing quotas than conforming to the spirit of directives from superiors.  A good place to start in the Ironche case is to fire those officials who are responsible for this travesty of justice.


The wreck left behind, a five year old with no father, students with no teacher, a wife who will struggle to make house payments, and if she is not able to, a bank that must deal with another foreclosure, all so ICE can brag about it’s great deportation record, is a tragic testament to what has become justice in America.  We must have a secure country to enjoy a secure society.  While ICE has made great strides in stopping international sex trafficking and drug smuggling, they are failing the American people when it comes to keeping productive people in the country rather than exporting our talent to compete against us.  As for family values and keeping the family unit together, ICE divides families with the stone cold precision of a well practiced divorce attorney.  While it will be decades before the damage this agency is doing to families can be tallied, a child sliced from a parent can tell in only minutes .


Those who believe they are safe after the Morton letter should take heed.   Like a freight train with no brakes, the massive federal agency which has gone to great lengths to apprehend and deport immigrants cannot be stopped on a dime.   Since ICE refuses to follow the orders of even it’s director, the best way to resolve immigration problems is through Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) including the Dream Act.   These kinds of laws don’t get passed without a tremendous effort from concerned citizens and immigrants.  No person has the luxury of sitting on the sidelines waiting to see what will happen.  As a five year old child cries out for
“Papa”, the future of many lives remains at stake.
