Couch Mode

An online petition has been started in the United States asking the government for the deportation of dancehall superstar, Mavado from the country immediately due to his criminal record. The petition was created on January 14, 2015 by Trudy A. Brown.
Mavado, whose given name is David Brooks, told media reporters that a former business associate is behind the scheme. The petition, which was created on Sunday, January 11, was posted on a section of the White House’s website called ‘We the People,’ stated that the dancehall entertainer is a non-residing felon living in the USA.

“Reggae artiste David Brooks is a non-citizen felon residing in the USA. He was convicted in May 2012 in Jamaica for serious assault”

It further stated that it is “grossly unfair that undocumented immigrants with no serious criminal records are deported daily, while a convicted felon, such as Mavado, has carte blanche to live and work here”. The petition was signed by ‘Concern US citizen’ Trudy A. Brown from Gapland, Maryland, in the United States. It has received a total of ten signatures so far.
