Gurmukh Singh, a taxi driver and member of the Orange County Taxicab Drivers Association, which advocates for safe working conditions and
fair pay for drivers, came to the United States from India more than 15 years ago and applied for asylum. He worked hard and built a life here with his wife and two children, all U.S. citizens. Earlier this year, Singh was in the middle of an interview to obtain his green card when he was arrested by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Singh and his family were unaware that faulty legal representation had led to his asylum appeal being denied.
Although he was released from detention after five and a half months, Singh still faces the threat of imminent deportation and separation from his family.
Existing ICE memos and directives obligate ICE personnel to take into account whether a person is a parent of children who have U.S. citizenship and whether they are the primary caretaker. Singh's two young daughters are both U.S. citizens, and he is the primary breadwinner in their family.
