Help Stop the Assault on Immigrant Mothers

    1. Sponsored by

      Reform Immigration for America

Many women and mothers in the United States are finding themselves caught in the middle of the “war on women” and the “war on immigrants”.

The fundamental rights of women -- documented and undocumented alike – are under siege.

Women’s health, sexuality, and safety are suddenly up for debate. There is an all-out assault on our essential right to become a mother, to raise children in healthy, safe families.

Immigrant women are feeling the assault from all sides – denying them basic personal choices about their lives and the lives of their children and loved ones. Laws and policies like Alabama’s HB 56 and Secure Communities have transformed routine aspects of daily life for women and mothers into impossible hardships and excruciating choices.

Make no mistake: Immigrant women and women of color bear the brunt of these attacks.

This Mothers Day, stand up for the fundamental humanity and rights of women.

      Are we all not descendants of immigrants who came to the U.S years ago? Immigration Reform is needed NOW.

      Only God has the right to decide if a family can be together or separated. Our government has started "playing God". I wonder how the people in charge of these situations (immigration judges, Government leaders, etc.) can even sleep at night. 50 years from now kids will be reading their history books and will look back in disgusted amazement on these times (like we now do about segregation). They will not understand how barbaric things like this were ever allowed to happen.
