Reunite Thousands of American Children Taken From Their Deported Parents

    1. Petition by

      Latino Policy Coalition

In 2011, over 46,000 mothers and fathers of at least one U.S. citizen child were part of massive ICE deportations. Many of these children (unable to be claimed by their parents while held in ICE detention centers) were put into county foster care custody and scattered throughout the nation - as abandoned and neglected.

      I was part of the community team supporting the Due Process legislation passed and signed into law in San Francisco in October. My focus was on women victims of domestic violence either afraid of reaching our for help for fear of deportation or victims being jailed. We have already begun to see results keeping mothers from being turned over for deportation, losing their children and being prevented from returning to the US. We are making a positive difference in San Francisco and I am confident we can do that for all living in the US.

      This very important to me because I am a mother of three beautiful children and can not imagine the sadness and overwhelmness of ever being separated from them and not knowing where or who they're with and more specifically the system loosing track of them. Please reunite the families President Barack Obama

      The hypocrisy of the Tea Party, as well as MANY other "moral" people, is laid bare by their glee over having kids taken away from deported parents. They have NO EXCUSE for such CRUEL actions!!
