I want everyone who is suffering because of the loss of there spouse due to this law that President Clinton passed in 1996 that is keeping our spouses from getting there papers making them wait the full term Immigration gives them.ITs unfair not just to illegal hispanics but the American people who are married to these illegals.

On almost every site u read and everything the Goverment passes is against us millions of families are torn apart because of one law.Many American people are suffering at the hands of their own country because of this law.Help us Mr Obama become united this year with our spouses.

      I recently moved to nuevo laredo to follow my husband after 8 months of detention and his deportation to mexico. We are trying to adjust but are very much aware this is not going to be easy as he hasnt lived here in 16 years but had no other choice in order to keep our family together. Please let us go back home, let all of us return to US and not separate our families... We are Americans and deserve the right to live the American dream with our family!

      Mr. Obama,

      I am an American citizen, currently residing in Guadalajara, Mexico because my husband was deported after a DUI. My husband had PRS, permanent resident status in the US and had never been here illegally. He had lived in the US for 14 years, learned to speak excellent English, and was active in our church community. The charges against him, had he been a citizen, would have been minor. Because he was an immigrant, he was deported. He has since undergone complete rehabilitation, and we are trying to get his visa so he can at least go to the US during the summer or on holidays to visit our children. Yes, that is right- we have seven children between the two of us, and because of immigration laws that have forced us apart, we cannot even be near them. His four live with their mother; my three sons were given a choice of either living with their father during the school year or moving to Mexico with me. They chose what any American kid would choose- the familiarity of staying in their own country. It breaks my heart to be away from my kids, but the laws of the United States of America have forced us to make this choice. My children, thank God, are well-adjusted and love the chance to go to a great school and spend summers with me. My step-children aren't so fortunate: they only talk to their father once or twice a week. He is unable to help with child support because the average Mexican wage is about $6 a day, and living expenses eat that up immediately. Without his financial help, his ex-wife is left to provide for them on her own, meaning she ends up relying on government assistance...

      My question for you is this: who is watching out for American families in our situation? Here you have TWO families who have been torn apart by unfair immigration laws; had Mr. Clinton not passed the 1996 law regarding criminal deportation, so many families would still be together, and so many Americans that have been forced into exile just to keep their families together would be home right now! Instead we are forced to take drastic measures to keep our families together as best we can, while a government that doesn't care about us stands by idly and refuses to take action for fear of offending the corporations that back laws like this! (I remind you that the 1996 law was passed largely due to lobbying by the private prison industry, who now controls the majority of ICE detention centers, and who profits millions of dollars annually from the suffering of families like mine!)

      Mr. President, I beg you: look at your daughters. Can you imagine a life away from them, waking up each morning in a different country, because your own government refused to allow you to remain together? Can you imagine them growing up without their father? Your family has close ties to immigration as well. Please, think of how your family has been affected, and could continue to be affected if this situation does not change. I beg you- let my husband come home. Let us all come home. Show us that our government cares more about it's citizens than some faceless corporation. REFORM IMMIGRATION.

      Tearfully and sincerely yours,

      Rhonda Medina
