waiting and asking for deportation


It is an incredible fact that we have many prisoners from other countries who were eligible for parole many years ago and we ordered deported back to their homeland upon release. Why are we holding them? Families are waiting for them in their own country. Here are two:

SCI ;100 Corrections Drive; Stanley, WI 54768

Jose Fuentes is one of many WI prisoners who were ordered deported by the judge upon release from prison. In 2005 Jose had a teleconference with a Federal Judge in Chicago where he issued a deportation order to go back to Mexico. Jose was sentenced in 1995 and has served 23 years of a 40 year sentence. He could have gone home 10 years ago, for pre 2000 statutes say he is eligible after serving one quarter of his sentence.
     In his own words:” I have completed all of my required programs.I have seen the Parole Board 8 times, and each time, instead of discussing the deportation order, I am told that they want me to serve more time.
       I have the love and support of my entire family who have written several letters over the years to the DOC expressing their support. My sister has a kidney disease and has to go through kidney dialysis every week and I want to give one of my kidneys to her. My father is 80 years old and his health is failing and he needs me to help with the farming."
But after doing everything the DOC has asked of me, it never seems to be enough. When is it time to give up?
And here are his final words to us and we think we should heed them.
"Mr. and Mrs. taxpayer. What about the incarcerated undocumented immigrants? Do you know that you are still footing the bill to keep them incarcerated long after they have finished all their required programs and long after a Federal Judge issued orders for these inmates to be deported. These immigrants should be deported out of the United States and no longer be a threat to society. Instead of deportation and saving Wisconsin taxpayer money, the Department of Corrections and the Parole Board are keeping them incarcerated to serve their entire sentence. Again, to fuel the Wisconsin prison industry and a big waste of taxpayer money."
Like the next prisoner, he wants to be deported, is eligible to be deported. He is rehabilitated,his family is waiting.Here is Jose's blogpost


JOSE GARCIA 305468 SCI 100 Corrections Drive; Stanley, WI 54768
           Jose Garcia is another prisoner in a miserable position.
He is a Colombian citizen and has been incarcerated , separated from friends and family , for 20 years. His sentence was 72 years and he had his first parole hearing in 2013. His crimes/convictions were very serious – attempted homicide, reckless injury, second degree sexual assault, false imprisonment and he states over and over again that he takes full responsibility for his crimes. He has taken every program he can and participated fully wherever he is allowed but the prison will not let him take certain required programs until he is 3 years from his mandatory release date which means he will have served 45 years before he is allowed to take basic programming when he was eligible for parole in 2013. He has all the friends and family back in Colombia to support him. Jose Garcia’s explanation is more eloquent:
         “Throughout my incarceration, I have, and continue to request to participate in any and all programs which will assist me in dealing with the issues which have led to my incarceration. I have been consistently denied.
           As I am to be deported to Colombia upon my release from prison, despite the current policies which allow inmates to be deported prior to their release, I have been denied such opportunities. As the process is explained, the Department of Corrections is the final authority to approve the early release and immediate deportation, and without reason, I have been denied such opportunities.
          I cannot say it enough, I take full responsibility for my actions, yet, believe I am being unjustly denied the legitimate opportunities to prove myself and no longer be a burden to the State of Wisconsin.
         Specifically, if I am eligible for parole, as I currently am, how is it I am denied due to the fact I have not completed the required rehabilitative programs, when such programs have been continuously denied by the Department of Corrections? How can I be denied due to insufficient time served, when current laws has permitted for review for early release? If such laws provides for me to be deported prior to serving my sentence, why not allow me to return to my country of origin? Is their any fiscal or ethical way to justify keeping me in this State, costing the average taxpayer 30,000 a year when Colombia will accept me back, as one of their citizens? How can I be of any threat to the citizens of Wisconsin, when I am deported?
           I understand the need for justice and to protect Wisconsin residents, yet, how is this accomplished by not providing the programs it requires of me, or refusing to allow me to return to my home country?

           I humbly ask for nothing more than what the law provides, I ask to either be allowed to take the rehabilitative program required of me or allow for my deportation.”

NLCI Box 4000, New Lisbon, WI 53950

Lene came here at 16 on the Mariel Boatlift and lied about his age, changed his name from Lenin to Lene. He knew little of the language and  was convicted of murder soon after, in 1981. He has always maintained his innocence and has been a model prisoner. In his case, with a life sentence, he was eligible after about 13 years- since 1994- AND the judge ordered deportation upon release.
His family awaits him in Cuba.

He is a fine poet and wonderful artist.

I got sentenced to 20 years in prison for selling drugs back in
 2000. Of the 20 years I have 23 months left. In a few weeks
Jose Meniz

I'm going to file for me 85% .If I get it, I would be getting deported  back to Mexico. I was 18 y ears old when I came to prison. the  judge that  sentenced me gave me boot camp,or minimum! I was in medium custody for 10 years. I got a ticket and that sent me here. I got okayed to medium custody 9 months ago but it is taking a long time to get to medium because of the over crowding  of the prisons.

To: Governor Tony Evers, his transition team and staff:
I understand you looking for candidates to release from Prison, I believe I am a good candidate. I arrive to Wisconsin when I was 16 years old in February 2001, from Mexico. I went to high school, college, and I had my own Business, and I've always payed my taxes. And this is my first incarceration, I do not have a criminal record, except for what I am here right now. And also I have a ("ice") detention, so I'm going to get deported to Mexico. Since the prison are overcrowded, and if I get deported sooner than later you have created a space and save money. During my time of being incarcerated I've taken a number of treatment programs. I've taken responsibility for myself, and I'm ready to make the best of any opportunity you might offer me and my conduct is been good, I did not received any minor or major conduct report since my initial incarceration, so this tell a lot about personality, and I believe on 2nd chance!

Ron Schilling 32219, KMCI
born 1951,has served 38 years
                                                                                         Ron with his daughter
Born In 1951, Ron Schilling is now 68 and has been incarcerated since 1976, 42 plus years. He killed a man during a drug deal gone bad. There is good reason to believe that he was incapacitated and not aware of what he was doing at the time of the crime, (see his letter) but he has never shied away from taking responsibility for the death. He has served his time well, staying clear of major conduct reports and earning several advanced degrees while PEL grants were still available. He is a fine musician, poet, and litigator and an inspiration to those around him.
Ron was granted parole in 2006 by Leonard Wells until he became victim of the new tough on crime rhetoric that also cost Leonard Wells his job. Both his co-defendants were released long ago.
As you know, when Ron was sentenced, the judge knew that a life sentence meant he would serve 13 % years and if his behavior was good, would be released at that time. It is well past time for parole for Ron Schilling. He still has good years left and is needed by his daughter and 3 grandchildren. He can be in their lives finally. He has much to give our troubled world and we need him.
" Mr Schilling has a keen mind and a good heart. If he is not a successful candidate for restoration to the community, then no one on my caseload could possibly be!"
Quote by Penny Adrian, Ron's Social Worker at Jackson correctional Institution-written in support of his parole bid in 2000.

Scott Howard

My name is Scott Howard and my number is 164177. I currently reside at Oshkosh Correctional Institution, P.O. 3310 Oshkosh WI. 54903-3310. I had just turned 29 years old when arrested and am now 59 years old and will turn 60 in October.

I was convicted on 10-2385 of First degree murder, Arson, Theft, Endangering safety, Fraudulent insurance claim and subsequently pleaded guilty on an unrelated case to Threats to injure and False imprisonment. I was sentenced to Life plus 29 years 9 months

I became parole eligible in February 1997, and have had 10 parole hearings and waived the eleventh in Dec. 2014.Each parole has been denied for the same reasons of "Unreasonable risk to society",

and "Have not served enough time for punishment". I think it is significant to note that I was convicted along with two co-defendants both sentenced to Life plus terms of confinement. One was paroled

in 2009 the other around 2002, and yet I can't even get sent to minimum to even be considered to be paroled under D.O.C. rules.

I have done everything asked of me and more and have maintained employment the entire time of my incarceration. I have learned every skill and trade could in order to be prepared to find work and live a productive life should I ever be released back into society. (see programs completed list) It all seems to have been for nothing, as the parole commission does not take any of these factors into consideration upon determining readiness for parole.

I waived my last parole hearing because the outcome is prede­termined before the hearing ever takes place. It has become too heart breaking to have to tell my elderly parents year after year that I am not coming home again and to hear them cry knowing they may never see me again as they can no longer travel such a long distance to come see me.

letter from Daughter:

   I was 9 years old when my dad left. He was 29 years old. That is more than half my life without my dad.  As a little girl, I really didn’t get the chance to know my dad. I missed out on all the important things that little girls get to share with their daddy’s. He wasn’t there to watch me go on my first date, or watch me slide into home base and tear up my leg, or teach me how to drive, or be there for my graduation, and most important of all, he wasn’t able to be there the day my son, his grandson, was born. I have missed out on so much with my dad. We will, unfortunately, never get that time back, but we still have the future ahead of  us and time to make up for some of the years we’ve lost. 

          My son is almost 20 years old and has only met his Grandpa one time. No boy should be deprived of knowing his Grandfather, especially when his Grandfather is as loving and caring as my dad. My son has a mental illness and needs someone to help guide him and help him through this challenging time in his life. My son needs a role model; a man in his life to teach him how to be a man. And out of all the men that I know, only two stick out in my mind as men that I want my son to take after. One of those men is my Grandpa and the other is my dad. Please don’t let my son spend the rest of his life not knowing his Grandpa.  

          I love my dad more than anything and I miss him more every day. I find that even as I get older, I sometimes need him more than I did as a little girl. My dad is my world and I don’t get to see him as much as I would like to, but given the opportunity, I would spend every day of the rest of my life with him trying to make up for lost time, trying to get to know him.  

My entire family has been heartbroken for years and misses my dad and wants him to come home more than anything. Our family hasn’t felt complete without my dad. His absence has taken a toll on all of us. My dad is such a talented man and can do anything that he sets his mind to. There are so many opportunities in the world for my dad and I can’t wait to see the man that he can become. I want my dad to come home. He has a phenomenal support system within his family. The one thing that my Grandparents want to see in their last years is for their son to come home. Please give my dad the opportunity to spend those last few years with his parents.

Both of the men that my dad were tried with have been paroled out of the State of Wisconsin. Why is my dad still there? He hasn’t caught any other cases and has been a model prisoner. He has taken classes to better himself and has held continuous jobs so that he can continue to grow his skills. He is currently learning to work on engines; small 2 stroke engines as well as big diesel engines. Everything he does in there, he does to better himself so that he has a future when he comes home. You have had him for 30 years. Please let me have him for the next 30. 

I, my son, my family and my dad have suffered long enough. It’s time for him to come home and start his life over and be the father and grandfather that he hasn’t had the chance to be.  

 I am proud to call this man my daddy! It is outrageous that with all his accomplishments and no conduct related issues while incarcerated that they continue to keep him from me and my family. I was 9 years old when my dad was taken from me. I will be 40 in August. My son (my dad's only grandchild) is now 21. He has seen his grandpa once in his whole life. We need to fight this injustice! I need my dad to come home to me. I a m still that little girl who needs her daddy. I love you so much dad!

    Jim Schuman

James Schuman 335144;
Sanger B. Powers Correctional Center;
N8375 County Line; Oneida, WI 54155

  James Schuman plotted to kill his wife during a dark parole period of divorcing- the man he plotted with was government- no one was hurt. He was convicted in 1997 has been in prison for over 20 years and wants nothing more but to be with is father in his last few years. Born in 1950, he is 68 and has multiple health problems.  His son’s wife has been battling cancer for years. He has taken full responsibility for his crime. Despite all these factors, he has been denied parole on numerous occasions.
     Jim has no criminal record. He has an excellent work history and has job skills he could put to immediate use if paroled. Both his children strongly supported him throughout his trial. He has no major conduct reports. He has used his time in prison well, tutoring other inmates, working other jobs, and furthering his education where possible. Prison authorities have rated him as a low risk for violent behavior or committing another crime if released.
       Here are his son’s Skip’s words after reading a transcript from his father’s parole hearing: “It is my opinion, in all the previous hearings, the commissioners came across as completely biased with predetermined decisions. The use of incendiary, misleading sophistry shows no actual consideration or discussion for parole. One might think the parole commission would be more useful investigating and assisting inmates to target how they will support and establish themselves to be assets to society, rather than detaining a created, continued expense for taxpayers.”

From letter 12 8 18
“ I left PDCI on Oct.18th 2017. Got to SPCC on December 15th 2017.I seen Parole on June 5th 2018, I went from 12 defer to a 24 defer, with strong talk that I would not be released at my MR-instead spoke of being held to discharge. The Parole commission is out of control.
I do not plan to go inform of the commission again. I wouldn’t have last time, except hoping for a small break to be able to second some time with my dad ( turned 88 in Nov). Right now I am a driver for inmates going to jobs. Odd hours and poor pay. I’ve a really bad shoulder to arm so I can’t do much else. I’d like to get closer to home but not likely to happen, many minimums facilities are ERP based now. IT makes for 3 ½-4 hour drive for family to come and visit.”
Finally , he provides us with some data:
update 1 19
a)      I ‘m 68 Yrs old
b)      Incarcerated 22 yrs ( since Feb 1997)
c)       1st  eligible for parole 2005
d)      My mother died 3/10/2016
e)      My father is 88 years old and has very poor mobility and marginal health
f)       I’ve had minimum  custody since 2017
g)      Community Custody since July 2017
h)      I’ve completed all programming requested by WIDOC, plus considerable voluntary programs and education.
i)        My work and participation record has been excellent.
j)        I have had 2 minor tickets in 22 years of incarceration
k)      I presently suffer from supraventricular tachycardia ( heart issues), arthritis i joints and muscles. Severe pain in my shoulder and arm have left my right arm of little use due to poor health Care.
l)        presently I am a driver at SPCC-transporting people to and from work sites around the area, driving 1000 plus miles a week
If released I could get proper medical attention and be able to assist my elderly father.

birth Date 1944- now 75Y.O. He has leukemia in remission . We see no reason to keep this man in prison. More coming: here is link to a recent affidavit of extraordinary health condition:

Terrance Shaw
138254 RCI. PO Box 900; Sturtevant. WI  53177
 Terrance was another of our compassionate release candidates and  is one of the hardest workers I know. He has an opportunity with the Veteran's Hospital to get treatment for the first time for his PTSD and then to take their training to become a mentor for other Viet Nam veterans who are also suffering from this malady. He was one of our compassionate release candidates but was denied. This is another example of the DOC's refusal to take into account the fact that people change.
Terrance Shaw  born 1948, now 70, has been incarcerated since 1982.
This man is a clear example of why we need to change from a revenge model to believing that people change. Terrance was a Viet Nam War veteran with what would now be called PTSD. His crime was horrendous and also he was horrendously ill . He has been in prison for 32 years on a life sentence. According to the statutes in place at the time , he has been eligible for parole since 1995. He has been absolutely sincere in his attempt to redeem himself and we ask that he be given a second chance.
    "When I first came to prison in 1982 I didn't even know my high school fractions, decimals, and percents. But during my first year in prison I got clean and sober and had a Spiritual Awakening. I studied hard for my own personal enrichment to remedy my mathematical deficit and went on to the University of Wisconsin-Extension and got 4-credits in Algebra and 3-credits in Accounting, and became a prison GED math tutor. "

He has also completed a 4 year Bible correspondence course and went on to get his master in Religious studies, doctorate in Bible studies and a PHD in philosophy of religion.He has been accepted for treatment for his PTSD at a veterans hospital and intends to go on to be one of their mentors. He is very anxious to serve and is one of the most earnestly striving people we know.
Why is this man still in prison? We hold more than 2500 prisoners who are eligible for parole and most are rehabilitated. They have all been in prison more than 15 years and most spent much of that time when there was good programming. Many, like Terrance, hold advanced degrees. Now, largely because of the exorbitant health care costs for these elderly prisoners (and Terrance at 66, has multiple health problems), there is little treatment for the mentally ill and few effective programs for anyone.
He has a bright future ahead of him and is very anxious to start the PTSD treatment at the Veteran's hospital and to go on to be a mentor to others with PTSD.

I realize that the pain and suffering I have caused, can never be undone But should there be a time for healing and compassion.. I am not a risk to the Public. I am terminally ill, and I have done everything I can in a Correctional setting to make myself a better person. I would like to spend my last days giving back to society. Thank you in advance for any consideration you may give this request.

Carl's is a very complex story and FFUP has been advocating for him for along time. Basically , the DOC has not the means to address his medical needs, denies those needs and forces Carl into constant litigation. He has PTSD and and enormous amount of serious conditions and all get worse as the stress mounts. Here is one shout out FFUP did to try to get him accommodations that would help.

James Schultz

An Update to the James R. Schultz Case
Green County, Wisconsin, Case No. 85-CR-234
James R. Schultz 18151
Jackson Correctional Institution P.O. Box 233
Black River Falls, WI 54615-0233

   I was found guilty of 1st degree intentional murder in the first half of a bifurcated (Not Guilty and Not Guilty by Reason of Mental Disease or Defect - NGI) trial. This was an accident, but my counsel insisted on my entering a MGI plea.
   There was no "intent" to commit murder. I was sleeping when my wife came home. How did I know she would go into the garage first, before going into the house?
   Nancy Schultz was not dead at the scene. The first law enforcement officer on the scene did not do CPR on her. The EMT contributed to her death by improper
intubation of the breathing tube. The tube was placed in her throat into her stomach instead of into her trachea (lungs). Nancy Schultz did not die of carbon monoxide asphyxiation; she died of plain suffocation from improper intubation, a new autopsy report should be ordered and conducted, independently, by someone other than a student of pathology (the study of disease).
   I could not refute the "intent" element because it was a bifurcated trial - that evidence is presented in the second phase of trial. I withdrew my plea before the second phase began because it was an accident, period, as I testified to during the first phase.
    However, the Court refused to correct my Judgment of Conviction (the document that states my plea, the jury verdict, and the sentence) to what actually happened in Court - i.e. that I was found guilty in the first half of an MGI trial and that I withdrew my plea before the second phase began.

Shouldn't the document that holds me in prison
reflect what actually happened in Court?

Also, the following is an update of my parole actions:
9/25/18    18 month defer from  Parole Commissioner turned into a 24 month defer
11/22/16 9/9/14 8/23/11 7/29/09 7/17/07 8/2/05 7/30/03 4/23/99  from--the-Chairperson.

11. The three standard reasons, for stamping of my many deferments follows;
 1. Past criminal history (which will never change)..

 3. Release would involve an unreasonable risk to the public:
12. I have completed every program made available to me, and some not made available to me (some two and three times) while earning 94 Certificates:

The "threshold" and factors which are significant are the following:
(1) Stable residency:
(2) Christian guidance:
(3) Financial independence, with about $8000.00 in my savings account, I've earned enough Social "Security credits to get about $1000.00 a month, and I can get VA benefits, medical, etc. And,
(4) Health Social Life Environments, with positive-enhancing leisure time activities:
My Value Doesn't Decrease Based Upon My Parole commissioners Inability to See My Worth. I pray that I won't run out of life before I run out of what time I have left to serve, so I that I can die at home with loved ones.

 Please Governor Evers don't let my success story go to my grave with me. There is no “wrong" time to do what is "right the interest of justice.
