Court Support for Wilmer

August 1 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm

**Español Abajo**

Please join us on August 1 to support Wilmer and his family in his civil suit against the Chicago ICE Office, Chicago Police Department, and the McHenry County Adult Correctional Facility.

Mr. Catalan-Ramirez belongs here with his family in Chicago. Instead, he is not only fighting a deportation case but is fighting for his life inside the correctional center, where he has been denied medical treatment and been victim of consistent abuse.

After CPD falsely labeled him as a gang member, ICE conducted a warrantless raid in March and violently seized Mr. Catalan-Ramirez from his home. This took place in front of his wife and 3-year-old son and resulted in Mr. Catalan-Ramirez, then recuperating from a serious injury, being further injured. Since then, he has been fighting for basic access to care and for his civil and human rights.

We are grateul to those who have come to support this family before, and ask for your continued presence. We also invite those of you who have not yet had the opportunity to come and be in solidarity with this family.

It is critical that we come out to show the Judge that Wilmer is NOT alone and that we want him released so that he can receive the medical care and family support he needs as he continues.

Please check out this video about Wilmer’s story: https://www.newsy.com/stories/detained-immigrant-sues-ice-agents-claims-excessive-force/

PLEASE also sign and share this new petition for Wilmer:

#ReleaseWilmer #Not1More

Acompanyenos el 1 de agosto para apoyar a Wilmer y su familia en su demanda en contra de la oficina de ICE in Chicago, la Policia de Chicago, y el McHenry County Adult Correctional Facility donde WIlmer esta detenido.

Wilmer debe mantenerse aquí en Chicago con su familia. Pero actualmente, el esta luchando no solo su caso de inmigracíon pero tambien por su vida adentro del centro de detención. Allí el ha sufrido maltratos, hostigamientos, acoso y neglicencia medica.

Despues de que los policías de Chicago lo identificaran falsamente como miembro de una pandilla, Wilmer fue detenido por ICE violentamente en Marzo del 2017, con su hijo de 3 años y su esposa presente. Desde su arresto, el ha estado luchando por tener acceso a tratamiento médico y que se respeten sus derechos civiles y humanos.

Estamos agradecidxs a lxs que han estado apoyando a la familia, y les pedimos su presencia en estas proximas etapas. Tambien invitamos a lxs que no han tenido la oportunidad de venir a estar en solidaridad con la familia este dia.

Es muy importante que mostramos al juez que Wilmer no esta solo y que le queremos libre para que el pueda recibir el cuidado medico que nescesita el y su familia.

Por favor, vea este video sobre su historia de Wilmer:
