Muñiz ran for Governor of Texas under the Raza Unida Party, an Independent Political Party, and he faced sudden turmoil after bringing about inclusion for Mexican Americans, Hispanics, Chicanos, and Latinos in the political arena. He has served over twenty-five years of a life sentence in federal prisons for non-violent drug offenses. He was among the first in the United States to be sentenced under the Three Strikes Law, which tied the hands of federal judges regarding sentencing.
At 75 years of age and in grave medical condition, he spends 90% of his time in a wheelchair. He is currently awaiting a decision on his Petition for Compassionate Release. Family members and supporters feel a sense of urgency, as Muniz's health continues to worsen.
In his 1994 trial, prosecutors did not allow evidence which would have exonerated him. He has served nearly 25 years of his sentence of life without parole. How do Americans ever reach our leaders? When faced with unfair practices by the government, to whom can the average citizen turn?
