To learn what happened to Ramsey Muniz in 1994, go to www.freeramsey.com. Order the new book about his life and imprisonment titled Freedom, Justice, and Love. Ask you congressman to send a letter of support for Ramsey's Petition for Compassionate Release to Mr. Hugh Hurwitz, Acting Director of the Bureau of Prisons, and 2 others involved in the Compassionate Release Program. A sample letter is provided. Thank you for your assistance!
I am writing on behalf of the National Political Campaign to Free Ramsey Muñiz,
asking that you support our efforts to obtain the immediate release of Ramiro “Ramsey”
Muñiz. This national campaign
supported by hundreds of Hispanics throughout the country is in support of Muñiz, a good and spiritual man who is
recognized for his contributions to humanity.
Ramsey Muñiz graduated from Baylor University School of Law and
became a candidate for governor of Texas. He represented Mexican Americans,
Hispanics, Latinos, Chicanos, and others who lacked a political voice. He and
others brought about positive change for many. As a result, Muñiz has suffered politically-motivated imprisonment. Today
he is serving a life sentence.
Muñiz has submitted a Petition for Commutation of Sentence through
the Office of the Pardon Attorney. The petition is in progress and we have not yet
received word of it having been reviewed.
A different application, an Application for Compassionate Release, has been submitted by Muñiz. The application was sent to the National Inmate
Appeals Administrator at the Office of General Counsel in Washington, D.C. Muñiz is 73 years of age. He has deteriorating medical
conditions and he spends 90% of his time in a wheelchair. He has no history of violence.
Guerrero, Th.D., Harvard School of Divinity, learned of the incarceration of
Ramsey Muñiz and he visited him at the United States Penitentiary in
Leavenworth, Kansas. Dr. Guerrero witnessed his suffering, and he is now writinga book about his life and present incarceration.
As a long-time defender of civil and human rights, we ask
that you support our efforts to return Ramsey Muñiz to his family who has stood by him for 22 years. The National Political Campaign to Free Ramsey
Hispanics throughout the country hope to share word of your support in this
humanitarian issue, and we await your reply.
