Immigrant Right: Being with your family
I am fighting for the rights of families to stay together, to get rid of the 3-year and Lifetime bans immigrants face because they got caught crossing the border more than once. As it stands now, any one caught entering the U.S. without inspection once faces a 3-year ban and getting caught more than once imposes a lifetime ban. This means that the man I, an American woman married, the father of my American children, cannot get a green card. He cannot share in our same rights, and is forced to live in the shadows! This is so heartbreaking and effects thousands! STOP the BANS!
It’s not a debate about policy. It’s a debate about people
Immigrant Rights=Human Rights
Immigrant rights are HUMAN RIGHTS! Immigrants enrich our economy, our culture, our lives. The sooner immigrants can be naturalized, the better! We are a nation of immigrants, always have been. All the fear mongering is nonsense—but, sadly, also part of our history. We must see that immigrants WANT to be here, want to be part of this country and admire our energy and dreams for a better life that we can offer them.
Stop the separation of immigrant families!

Please let us stop the deportation of hard working immigrants who came here on work permits had young children and then babies here. They are not criminals but rather hard working humans as were our ancestors before us. they want a better life. There chidrn were here from early grades to high school and beyond. The children want to go to college. The parents are good honest people wanting the opportunity they and we all deserve. This is America. Take down the Statue of Liberty if its symbolism does not truly speak of give me your tired and poor.
