To the Honorable Immigration Judge,

My name is {Name}. I am {age} years old, a legal United States citizen and the {relation} of {Deportee}. It is my most fervent request that you suspend the deportation of {Deportee}, as it would cause extreme hardship within our family and community.

I have known {Name} for {amount of time} and can vouch for the fact that {he/she} has lived here for the last {number} years and that {he/she} is of the highest moral character. {Example of moral character such as volunteer or charity work, donations, good deeds, involvement in the church or community}.

Mostly, though, without {Name} our family would be thrown into the worst kind of hardship. {Name} is the primary earner for our family, providing {amount} of our {total} income. Without {him/her} we would be forced to {actions}.

The rest of {Name}'s family members have U.S. citizenship and would be separated from their {relation} forever. {Name} would be unable to obtain a visa and return to the United States because {reason(s)}. {His/her} children would be devastated at the loss of their {father/mother} and it would tear the family apart.

I hope you will consider all of these facts, and allow {Name} to stay with {his/her} family and continue enriching {his/her} community.
