Demand Amnesty for Oscar Ramos

Filed under: News/Announcements — blackboxradio @ 7:32 pm

For the past two weeks on BlackBox Radio, we have been following the story of Oscar Ramos, a local resident and undocumented worker. Mr. Ramos has a severe spinal column injury which he sustained while on the job. He has been detained in Monroe County Jail for almost 2 months despite his medical condition. During this time, because he has not had access to the medical care or proper nutrition that he needs, his condition has deteriorated. His detention by Homeland Security is largely due to malfeasance on the part of his lawyer, who failed to represent him at an immigration hearing, causing him to be arrested and scheduled for deportation to Honduras.

At this time, Mr. Ramos and his family are hoping that he can stay in the country so that he can undergo a necessary surgical operation for his spinal injury and recover under the care of his physician. If he is deported to Honduras he will likely not ever recover from this serious injury that he sustained while on the job. Mr. Ramos is asking concerned people to call local representatives and express their support. Please contact the parties listed below and tell them that you support amnesty for Oscar Ramos.
