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.
