Protect Arriving Refugees at Our Southern Border

Please join us in asking President Obama for immediate protections for the refugees arriving at the southern border of the US. Most are young mothers, children and teenagers, and many are fleeing the drug wars in Central America and Mexico.

As set forth in our petition, we are asking for temporary protected status for these refugees, and for all unaccompanied minors to be provided with lawyers. No child should be subjected to expedited removal to a dangerous homeland. To deport an unrepresented and at-risk child, without full proceedings, is unconscionable.

Please sign and share with as many friends as possible.
