Re: Meeting Request to
Discuss the Ramsey Muñiz Incarceration
Dear President Obama:
I wish to express my political, moral, and
spiritual support for Mrs. Irma Muñiz,
who seeks freedom and justice for her husband, Ramiro “Ramsey” Muñiz.We believe that as President of the United
States you would want all facts pertaining to this case and to hear from all
I am one of many who support her efforts to
meet with you about the incarceration and suffering of her husband and family.
Supporters are united in the ongoing efforts to obtain freedom for Ramsey Muñiz,
who made positive contributions for Mexican Americans, Hispanics, Latinos, and
Ramsey Muñiz received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in political science from Baylor
University and a Juris Doctor Degree from Baylor School of Law. He was a
practicing attorney for years. He is known for becoming one of the first
Hispanic candidates for Governor in the state of Texas at the age of 30. His
community activism and volunteerism brought about advancements for Mexican
Americans, Hispanics, Latinos and others throughout the Southwest.
Historically, Ramsey Muñiz made a positive political impact on the
lives of many.During the Civil Rights and
Chicano Movements, which focused on Mexican Americans and Hispanics, he pursued
a vision that helped thousands of Hispanics and Latinos obtain freedom,
justice, and the right to make a contribution to humanity.Ramsey Muñiz was an advocate and spokesman for civil rights and he encountered
many problems in his life since then.
The continued incarceration of Ramsey Muñiz violates his constitutional rights and his
God-given right to freedom. We will continue to follow this case until he is
free, and can return to his family.
Ramsey Muñiz has suffered immense pain and
agony for the last 20 years, and the sadness that his family has felt
throughout his confinement has been great.His wife has struggled to see him throughout his long imprisonment. His
daughter and family suffer greatly from the separation of a father and
grandfather.Ramsey’s siblings and 83
year old mother-in-law can no longer travel the distance to visit him because
of their failing health.
Ramsey has the
love and support of family, friends, and supporters who seek to end his
suffering. National Hispanic organizations and civil rights organizations such
as National LULAC, the American GI Forum, the League of Latin American
Citizens, Friends of Justice, and the Chicano Studies Network have provided support
during the years and efforts to obtain his freedom, and they will continue to
appeal for help until he is free.
We seek your attention in this matter which
is important to Hispanics, Latinos, and many others throughout the United
States of America. We anxiously await a reply to the meeting requested by Mrs.
Irma Muñiz, which many will view as a response that addresses issues
pertaining to family, Mexican Americans, Hispanics, Latinos, and all Americans.
