Juan Vargas

From the office of:

Juan Vargas

Sending Office: Honorable Juan Vargas
Sent By:
Eddie.Meyer@mail.house.gov

SIGN-ON DEADLINE: COB on Wednesday, April 8

Recent news stories report that at least two Guatemalan men tested positive for COVID-19 after being deported from the United States. The same plane(s) that were used to deport these men were subsequently used to repatriate U.S. citizens and or LPR’s stuck
abroad. This raises grave concerns about the safety of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers, U.S. citizens, the deportees, and the role that we all need to play in defeating this pandemic instead of helping to spread the disease.

If you would like to join Rep. Vargas and send the letter below to DHS and ICE officials, please email
eddie.meyer@mail.house.gov by COB Wednesday, April 8. Thank you.
