Ramsey Muniz Sacrificed His Freedom, Personal Interests, Family, and Happiness

Dear President Obama:

We ask God, Jesus Christ, La Virgen de Guadalupe and the holy spirits in heaven to pray that the Castro family will continue to benefit from the efforts and historical contributions made by Ramsey Muñiz for Mexican Americans, Chicanos, Hispanics, Latinos, and others whose lives were changed for the best.

Through the Raza Unida Party he and others advocated freedom and justice for all. As a Texas candidate for governor, Ramsey Muñiz awakened others about the contributions of Mexican Americans and others who had been excluded by a political process that included the Democrat and Republican parties. He later suffered for bringing this to light and for bringing about a positive change that he predicted forty years ago.

The historical contributions of Ramsey Muñiz cannot be denied yet silence remains, and he continues to suffer (over 21 years) from unjust incarceration. This is known by many leading Hispanic Democrats who have done little to seek justice in his case. The Honorable Lloyd Doggett, The Honorable Gonzalo Barrientos, and The Honorable Gene Green are among other supporters, who have provided assistance, and we are grateful for the leadership qualities that they have demonstrated.

Eventually truth will come to light. The Democratic Party will learn that Hispanic votes will not automatically be given, and the Republican Party will learn that injustice still exists.

The family and supporters of Ramsey Muñiz expect the truth to be revealed. It is only right, knowing that for the sake of truth Muñiz sacrificed his freedom, personal interests, family, and happiness.
