Stop the wasteful and unnecessary deportation of Ibrahim Parlak!
Ibrahim Parlak is a Turkish Kurd who was granted asylum by the U.S. in 1991, based on a well-founded fear of persecution in his homeland. Since 1991 he has become a restaurant owner, devoted father to an American citizen daughter, and beloved member of his community in the small town of Harbert, Michigan. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is now seeking to deport Ibrahim back to Turkey, where his life would be at risk. We, the family and friends of Ibrahim in America, want to keep him here where he belongs. Please help us to stop the wasteful and unnecessary deportation of Ibrahim Parlak!
