Re: Assistance for Ramiro “Ramsey” Muñiz, 40288-115
I am writing to ask for your assistance for Ramiro “Ramsey” Muñiz. He has been incarcerated for almost twenty-two years, serving a sentence of life without parole
Ramiro “Ramsey” Muñiz has a noteworthy background. As a graduate of Baylor Law School, he was a practicing attorney and Texas gubernatorial candidate in 1972 and 1974. Muñiz brought positive political change for Mexican Americans, Hispanics, Latinos, and many others who lacked a political voice. As a result, he faced several legal problems in 1976 and 1994. In the 1994 indictment, information that would have exonerated him was not given in trial until the end. By then it was too late. The Court counted his 1976 case twice (indicted in two different courts), and enhanced his sentence to life without parole
Muñiz has submitted a Petition for Commutation of Sentence. Deborah Leff, Pardon Attorney, has confirmed receipt of his petition, which is based on his age and health conditions. He is an excellent candidate. Muñiz is turning 73. He suffers from chronic, debilitating health conditions that could not have been foreseen when he was sentenced in 1994. He uses a wheelchair more than 80% of the time. He isnotviolent, and he has demonstrated good conduct through his incarceration.
National support for Muñizcontinues to grow. Organizations, (National LULAC, Mexican American Democrats, Tejano Democrats, the American GI Forum, Friends of Justice), along with United States congressmen, religious leaders, and others have written to President Obama, supporting the efforts of the National Political Campaign to Free Ramsey Muñiz.
Dr. Andres Guerrero, a graduate of Harvard School of Divinity, learned of the imprisonment of Ramsey Muñiz, and visited him at the Leavenworth United States Penitentiary. He is now writing a book on his history, accomplishments, and incarceration.
We need for President Barack Obama to take positive action by granting the immediate release of Ramiro “Ramsey” Muñiz. This issue is important to many Hispanics throughout the country who recognize Muñiz as a loving husband, father, brother, uncle, and friend who helped many others. He and his family continue to suffered.
As a congressman who advocates for Hispanics, we ask that you discuss this urgent matter with President Barack Obama, and send letters of support for the freedom of Ramiro Muñiz For additional information, go towww.freeramsey.com.
Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter.

I am writing to extend
our deepest gratitude to you for sending prayers and blessings to Ramiro “Ramsey”
Muñiz, who has been unjustly
incarcerated for almost 22 years. We thank God for your correspondence, as he has
suffered unlike any other because of who he is.
Ramsey Muñiz suffers from an incarceration
that has been disregarded for years. He is a good and loving person who graduated
from Baylor Law School and became a candidate for governor of Texas during the
Civil Rights Movement. Muñiz represented
Mexican Americans, Hispanics, Latinos, Chicanos, and others who lacked a political
voice. He brought positive change for many. As a result, he suffered
imprisonment several times, and he is now in prison for life. Innocence was
impossible to prove.
Ramsey Muñiz, a Catholic, has always been spiritual.
During his childhood he helped his grandmother to pray for the sick. His faith
remains strong today. He maintains faith in God, Jesus Christ, and La Virgen de
Guerrero, a graduate of Harvard School of Divinity, learned of the incarceration
of Ramsey Muñiz. He visited him
at the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas. Dr. Guerrero witnessed his
immense suffering and today he is writing a book about his life and present
We have asked
Deborah Leff, Pardon Attorney, to forward the Petition for Commutation of
Sentence, submitted by Ramiro R. Muñiz,
to President Barack Obama. Muñiz
He is 72 years of age, and he suffers from chronic, degenerative health
conditions (hip fracture, herniated disc, anemia). He is not violent.
If your schedule
were to permit, we would be honored for you to visit Ramiro “Ramsey” Muñiz. He is at the Federal
Correctional Medium Institution in Beaumont, Texas. Your historical visit would
represent the first steps toward his freedom, and give hope to thousands of
prisoners and families who suffer.
As our spiritual
leader, we ask that you speak of this case to President Obama, and write a
letter of support asking him to grant the freedom of Ramiro “Ramsey” Muñiz, 40288-115. To learn more about Muñiz, please visit our website and
blog at www.freeramsey.com and www.freeramsey.blogspot.com.

and prayers to you for all you have done for humanity.
