I pray that upon receipt of this letter, you maintain
the spiritual blessings of health and the love of God. My name is Ramiro
“Ramsey” Muñiz, and I am from Corpus Christi, Texas. My family has
written to you, and I am also writing to ask for your blessing and assistance.
I have been unjustly incarcerated for 21 years. Attorneys
have legal documents pertaining to my unconstitutional trial, conviction, and
sentence of life without parole. My struggle for freedom and justice has been
long and hard and it has had a great effect on me and a loving family that I am
blessed to have. We have remained spiritually united after 21 years, pursuing freedom
incarceration is due to the political impact that I made at the age of 30,
having run for governor of Texas. I helped to gain a political voice for
Mexican Americans, Hispanics, Latinos, Chicanos, and many others. Historically
it is written that this came about during the Civil Rights Movement. Many of us
here in the United States know in our hearts and souls that I am unjustly
incarcerated because I am a political prisoner.
When previously held in solitary confinement, I was in
chains, shackles, naked, and cold. Preparing to succumb to the end of my life,
my beloved brother, Jesus Christ, came into the darkness and told me to rise and
become the man that God destined for me to be, demonstrating freedom, justice
and love for all humanity. I maintain His enlightenment to this day. Through
the blessings of God and the love of Christ, I have been spiritually blessed
like no other.
My beloved brother, Jesus Christ, shared that at times
we must give up the essence of pleasure and comfort in return for a life of
suffering, hardship, misery, and even imprisonment for the deep spiritual love
of freedom and justice for humanity. I believe this to be true.
The late Dr. Salvador Alvarez, my loving father-in-law,
has stated, "Ramsey, my son, it is evident, and soon history will reveal
to present and past generations, your contributions and sacrifices in the
political, cultural, and spiritual struggle for truth and justice, to the
extent that you sacrificed your freedom, personal interests, family, and
happiness." He speaks to me daily.
I am a Catholic and I have great belief in God, Jesus
Christ, and La Virgen de Guadalupe. Catholic priests and nuns have advocated and
prayed that justice will prevail in my case. United States congressmen and national
organizations have supported me, and I know that one day God will grant my
I am 71 years old and confined to a wheelchair. Because
of my age and medical condition I am eligible to be released under the Compassionate Release Program initiated
by President Barack Obama. I have submitted an application and I ask for your
prayers and influence, knowing that you represent the spiritual conscience of
the world. Please ask President Obama to consider my case, as he has stated, “And
as we pray for all prisoners of conscience, whatever their faiths, wherever
they’re held, let’s imagine what it must be like for them.”
Thank you for stating that Catholics should become involved
in politics, as I have learned that this is a spiritual mission. I ask that
your prayers will obtain my freedom and the freedom of my family. I will always offer prayers for you, knowing
that you are a spiritual gift from God to all humanity.
