Release David Wong Pending Deportation sign now

We urge that Immigration and Customs Enforcement release David Wong pending deportation to allow him to live with his relatives, friends and supporters in the United States while awaiting deportation.

In 1986, David Wong was 24 years old when a prison guard coached a witness to lie and falsely identify David Wong as the person who committed a murder. David was wrongly convicted in 1987 and it took seventeen years before an appellate court unanimously overturned the murder conviction in 2004. He was 41 years old by the time he was finally cleared. He lost the prime years of his life due to the wrongful conviction that was based on false, coached testimony. In prison, he earned a diploma, has studied extensively, and would like to be a youth counselor to dispel misconceptions about life in penitentiaries.

David Wong has extremely broad community support and has close relatives and friends in the United States who will support him while he awaits deportation. Since December 2004, David has been held in the Buffalo Detention Center while awaiting deportation. David should be allowed to be released from detention and be with his supporters while he awaits deportation.

ICE has so far refused to release David pending deportation because of a robbery conviction two decades ago when David was a young, immature man. David has since been fully rehabilitated, having served 21 years in jail, and is determined not to break the law ever again. David is now in his 40s and if he is released, he would not pose a threat to the community that has rallied behind him and is ready to support him while he awaits deportation.

We urge ICE to release David pending deportation and for Congress to take action to allow David to wait with his supporters until he is deported. David's release from prison was delayed twelve years because of a conviction for a murder that he did not commit. David should be released from detention immediately and allowed to live with his relatives, friends, and supporters until he is deported.
