United States Senator

Dear Senator Clinton:
We seek your assistance in the case of Ramiro “Ramsey” Muñiz of Corpus Christi, Texas. Mr. Muñiz is remembered for his leadership role during the Civil Rights Movement in the 60s and 70s. He ran for governor of Texas twice, and made great contributions to the Mexican American, Hispanic, the Latino populations who had no representation in the political arena. To learn more about him please go to our website at http://www.freeramsey.com, or search for Ramsey Muñiz videos at http://www.youtube.com.
Resolutions in support of Ramsey Muñiz have been passed by the League of United Latin American Citizens and the American GI Forum as this issue is of critical importance to the Mexican American, Hispanic, and Latino communities. The LULAC resolution may be accessed by going to the National LULAC resolutions website.
The issue of Ramsey Muñiz is humanitarian, and it merits the involvement of all senators, congressmen, organizations, attorneys, and American citizens. For this reason we seek assistance from Democrats and Republicans alike, as we urgently seek assistance to free an innocent man who made great contributions to humanity and has suffered unjustly for many years of his life.
We have struggled for years to have Mr. Muñiz transferred to Texas so that he can have the opportunity to prove his innocence. We will pursue a Commutation of Sentence and we would greatly appreciate your sharing information about this case with others.
Please know that Mexican Americans, Hispanics, and Latinos throughout the Southwest will not abandon the issue of Ramsey Muñiz until he obtains his freedom. We ask for your assistance, and we thank you in advance for your support.
