This is the story of our community. We should not continue to let our children live in pain and fear because their parents are at risk of being deported. It is for the good of our undocumented parents, their U.S. citizen children and this nation that our immigration system be comprehensively reformed.
It is with great sadness we see families continue to be broken up and children left to their relatives or the state. We need to stay strong in our demand for immigration reform so that those who want to live in our communities can work hard to support their families and contribute to the economy.
We are the land of the free and the home of the brave. We believe in the Life, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness, the Common Good, Justice, and Diversity! We must uphold these values and beliefs and communicate them to our leaders.
Please watch the trailer for the documentary “Two Americans”, and learn the real life consequences of ignoring our values and letting the dreams of the 11 million undocumented slip through the cracks of a broken system and into despair. Stand with us.
