A small win. Riaz Talkuder is out and he has another appointment to check-in with immigration in 6 months. Originally he was asked to bring a one way ticket to Bangladesh to be deported. This has been delayed.
Thank you to all the advocates who have been supporting Riaz and his family. Thank you to all those who made calls, used your networks and showed up.
We should never be silent when a father who has called this country home for 37 years, has a sick wife with cancer and 2 American born children is stripped from his family. Unacceptable. Riaz is just one story of many. This inhumanity can not continue under our watch. I hope Riaz is breathing a sigh of relief.
