Action Alert
Keep Kadhim Home

Kadhim Al-bumohammed, an Iraqi man living in Albuquerque, is facing deportation and we need your help.

Kadhim, who for five years trained U.S. soldiers deploying to Iraq, has been ordered to appear for deportation at the local Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) field office on Thursday, July 13 at 9 a.m. At this meeting, it is expected that ICE will place Kadhim in immigration detention, even though a court order currently prohibits deportations to Iraq.

As an Iraqi that trained and assisted the U.S. military, Kadhim fears he will be tortured and killed if deported. Given his previous torture in Iraq, the disappearance of his son three years ago, and actions taken against other Iraqis who have served the U.S. military, this fear is well substantiated.

We need your help to keep Kadhim's family together and stand against policies and practices that tear apart our communities. Please take action today.

I write to express support for Kadhim Al-Bumohammed, A# 071 674 058, who has been ordered to report for deportation in Albuquerque, NM on Thursday, July 13 at 9 a.m.

Kadhim is an Iraqi national who has lived in the US for 26 years and dedicated five years assisting the U.S. military and training U.S. soldiers deploying to Iraq on culture and linguistics. Kadhim cannot be deported under the current federal ruling. Because of his service with the U.S. military, deportation to Iraq puts him at great risk of torture and even death.

I urge you to issue a stay of deportation and call on your superiors to allow Mr. Al-Bumohammed to seek a motion to re-open his case.

Thank you for your consideration.
