Letter to Mail in Support of Freedom for Ramsey Muniz

                                                             June 8, 2013


The Honorable Barack Obama
President of the United States
c/o Office of the Pardon Attorney
1425 New York Avenue, N.W. Suite 11000
Washington, D.C. 20530 

Dear Mr. President:

               We have struggled for many years to free Ramiro “Ramsey” Muñiz from imprisonment for a 1994 conviction and excessive sentence of life without parole for a non-violent drug offense. Ramsey and his family and friends have endured pain and suffering as a result of nearly 20 years of suffering. He is now turning 70 years of age and we refuse to let him die in prison.

               Wrong perceptions, judgment, mistakes, withholding evidence, and Ramsey’s political background contributed to his convictions. He was a community activist during the Civil Rights and Chicano Movements. Ramsey raised the political consciousness in Texas and the Southwest. He enabled many to gain a political voice and seek public office at local, state, and national levels. He incurred legal problems as a result of this activism.

               All appeals have been exhausted as the law did not work in our favor. We now seek your assistance and we ask that you grant Ramsey Muñiz a Commutation of Sentence on humanitarian grounds.

               We believe in your leadership and we ask that you help free Ramsey Muñiz so that he can be reunited with his family once again. To learn more about him, go to

                                                                Very truly yours,
