Stop 3 US Citizens, children, from being sent to Zimbabwe

Prevent the 3 US Curle kids from being sent to Zimbabwe, Africa.

We need your help to stop this injustice.  

The parents of these children were missionaries in Zimbabwe.  All three children are U.S. Citizens.   The father resides in Zimbabwe but is a Candadian citizen who is not allowed to enter the U.S.A. because of visa violations.  

A judge determined that the habitual residence of these children is Zimbabwe.  They have lived in the U.S.A. with their mother since 2009 and are enrolled in school.  This recent decision means they must return and reside in Zimbabwe pending adjudication of the case.  

Harare, where the children will reside, has been plauged with disease and social unrest.  Typhoid and cholera run rampant and over 80% of the residents have HIV.   The judge refused to consider the saftey of the children in this decision.  

Please help us protect the rights and safety of these young U.S. citizens.  Unless you help, they will have to leave the country on April 20, 2012.

Please continue to share this link and encourage others to sign the petition. We will need the help of our administration to bring these kids home.

      US citizens should be allowed to remain in the US, especially if they have a legal guardian with whom they can remain.

      I sign in an attempt to protect those who have no voice. Our government leaders spout a lot of rhetoric on child abuse prevention, yet children remain the most vulnerable of individuals in our society. There is no genuine or lawful protection from emotional harm, physical danger, or the long-term consequences of psychological damage to children. And what about the rights of mothers to protect them? Are we still fighting for the rights of women and mothers in this day and age? This is the 21st Century, for pity's sake. Speak up and take a stand for women and children--please.

      These children are in the best possible circumstance now and should not be moved to one of the worst possible locations on the planet.
