Petition to Department of Homeland Security
Stop tearing families apart
The Trump Administration recently began implementing a new “zero tolerance” prosecution policy that has separated hundreds of immigrant children, including infants and toddlers, from their parents upon arriving at the border. These families are often fleeing horrific violence, and parents are doing everything they can to protect their children by coming to the United States. Taking these children from their parents is inhumane, unnecessary, and unacceptable. Sign our petition and demand that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) stop tearing immigrant children from their parents. Under Attorney General Sessions’ new policy, adults arriving at the border outside of designated ports of entry will be criminally prosecuted and sent to U.S. Marshal Service custody to await prosecution, and then transferred to immigration detention to await immigration proceedings. Children cannot be kept in adult detention facilities and will be rendered “unaccompanied,” transferred to the Office of Refugee Resettlement, and placed in different facilities and shelters for children, sometimes several states away from their parents. Pediatricians and child welfare professionals have spoken out forcefully about the significant and enduring trauma forced separations inflict on children and their families. Family separation also creates challenges for children seeking legal protection, who must now prepare their cases with only limited access to information and documentation from their parents that could help to prove their claims. As a result, children may be unable to support their cases for asylum and be returned to harm or death in their home countries. There is no law that compels the separation of children from their parents, and the Administration can and should immediately halt policies that embrace this cruel and unnecessary practice. This ruthless and brutish targeting and treatment of particularly vulnerable children and families is being done in the name of all Americans. Join us in calling on DHS to immediately stop separating immigrant families.

No child should die from the flu
For most of us, the flu season is inconvenient, but for people confined to immigrant detention centers it’s scary. Children held in detention are 9 times more likely to die from the flu than the general pediatric population. With flu season well underway, we urgently need your help to get flu vaccinations to the people who need it most. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is blocking a group of doctors from offering the flu vaccine to children and families in detention. Immigrant detention camps function like prisons: physically and emotionally stressed migrants are held in these overcrowded and unsanitary conditions, often for months on end. Without the flu vaccine, it’s almost guaranteed that we’ll see more outbreaks, putting more lives at risk. No one in 2019 should be dying from the flu in these camps. Carlos' death could have been prevented. Send a message to DHS before the disease spreads even further. This is a heartless way to punish people who are seeking safety in the United States. Let’s be clear: our government put these people in camps simply because they are seeking asylum; they have not committed crimes. It doesn’t have to be this way. Our organization, Doctors for Camp Closure, wants to offer the vaccine to people in a detention center in California at no cost to the government. All we need is permission to enter. Join us in requesting permission to offer the flu vaccine to vulnerable children and families in migrant detention. P.S. – If you’re a physician, medical professional or medical student, please leave a comment indicating that when you sign.
Petition to U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate, President of the United States
Stop harassing US citizens/legal immigrants "DO YOU HAVE A GREEN CARD?"
or threatening with "DEPORTATION" because of their color or accent. Click the above video and red link for the exact questions asked by Hallmark's lawyer and recorded by Court reporter. Race and immigration have always been major issues in this country. As a lucky immigrant from Taiwan in 1982 and later becoming a US citizen in 1989, I have a decent business, and live happily in an ocean front house in Long Island, NY with my wife and 86-year-old mom, and my granddaughter is 2 years old now. All the people in my town are so nice and friendly to us, and I told everybody that although I could not choose to be born here, I choose to die here. My company is a publisher and distributor of greeting cards, and my invented sound card are 6 time winners of the Louie Award, the most prestigious award in the industry, and sold in more than 15,000 stores one time. Comparing to Hallmark, I am a gnat, but we have been competing against each other in the market for the past 30 years. In 2017, my company became tangled in a civil case with Hallmark. In a 6-hour video recorded deposition in the presence of two court reporters and three lawyers after I rejected their offer for settlement, I was repeatedly grilled questions such as “DO YOU HAVE A GREEN CARD?” and threatened with "DEPORTATION". As a US citizen for 30 years, I do not mind that some people still call me “Chink” and ask me to “go back to China” without knowing the difference between China and Taiwan; I have also heard that many criminals target immigrants to rob and rape, and their lawyers helped them get away easily by attacking the victims’ immigration status, but I was extremely surprised and upset when it was directed by a company named "Hallmark" with more than 20,000 employees and a law firm named “Fox Rothschild” with 800 lawyers. As one of the luckiest immigrants and US citizens, I have owed so much to this country and its people, and how can I keep silent? Why did Hallmark have to ask my immigration status in a civil dispute after knowing me and my company for 30 years? Big companies can bully small competitors and copy their ideas, but legally are they allowed to enter their competitors' facility by false pretense and take pictures and video? This nation has already been divided by issues such as immigration and border walls, and we will not have easy answers shortly, but can we at least agree that ALL THE US CITIZENS AND LEGAL IMMIGRANTS SHOULD BE TREATED EQUALLY REGARDLESS OF THEIR COLOR OR ACCENT? Part of the comments from change.org can be download from this link. For more details and updates of this modern David vs Goliath story, please follow our page on Facebook or check Hall vs Chou. LET'S WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE THIS COUNTRY A BETTER PLACE FOR ALL BY ASKING CONGRESS TO PASS A LAW THAT QUESTIONS ABOUT IMMIGRATION STATUS SHOULD BE BANNED IN A CIVIL CASE. p.s. My son is the founder of "transparentcity". He was born here and lives at upper west side next to Hudson River with his lovely wife and daughter. I hope that they will not have to face the same problems as I had with Hallmark.
Petition to Donald J. Trump, Department of Justice
DOJ: The Deaths & Abuse Must Stop! Improve Medical Care in Detention Centers
With an estimated 15,000 children still held in immigration detention facilities in the US, the top complaint people in detention centers have reported is medical neglect or abuse. Thousands of children have reported instances of sexual abuse. Children sleep on concrete floors, and yesterday, we learned Justice Department lawyers said children don’t need soap or toothbrushes. In the last two years, more than 22 people have died in detention centers in the United States, including six children. Most recently reported, 16-year-old Carlos Gregorio Hernández Vásquez from Guatemala died at a detention centre in Texas in May. These deaths could have been prevented with appropriate and timely medical care. Everyone deserves the right to appropriate medical care. It is imperative that the Department of Justice and President Trump address this health care crisis immediately. Sign the petition to be the voice of the voiceless in detention centers, and urge the DOJ and President Trump to improve health care conditions for migrants in detention centers.
Petition to Catholic Charities Of Maine
Catholic Charities of Maine -Stop The Refugee Racket!
We the people of Maine demand Catholic Charities of Maine shut down Refugee services We ask CCM to stop participation in human trafficking/busing illegal/asylum individuals to Maine. CCM has participated in the globalist refugee racket in Maine for almost 20 years. Maine citizens have footed the bill while Catholic Charities lines their pockets. Maine people will no longer allow CCM to force their globalist agenda on Maine tax payers/citizens as well as U.S tax payers/citizens. Maine has a shortage of housing. We have waiting lists years long that include elderly and disabled Mainers CCM is well aware of all of these facts, but still continues to facilitate the flooding of our state with non-citizens. By trafficking more homeless to our state, CCM is creating more crises. Our homeless are dying in the streets while so called asylum seekers flood Maine filling up family shelters and also taking desperately needed housing our citizens have a right to FIRST. Maine people are not interested in supporting your agenda. American Citizens First. Catholic Charities of Maine, you are on notice. Signed, Maine Citizens

Petition to Microsoft
Leave Political Decisions to the Voters, Don't Boycott ICE!
In the 21st century America, the Internet has become an essential communication tool and a basic part of daily life. Yet in recent years, the has been a trend toward big technology companies seeking to prevent those who hold differing political views from having free access to the communication channels that they control. From demonetization on YouTube to shadow bans on Twitter, those who deviate from progressive orthodoxy on contentious issues far too often find themselves blocked. Now, a group of software engineers claiming to represent the open source community is trying to take the industry’s influence in politics to a new level. They have issued an open letter asking GitHub, a source code hosting service owned by Microsoft, to refuse to do business with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). This petition takes no position on the policies enforced by ICE or what changes should or shouldn’t be made to these policies. Rather, our concern is over who should be making these decisions in the first place. In a democratic society such as the United States, decisions of national importance are supposed to be made by the people through their duly elected representatives, with judicial review to ensure that they are in compliance with the Constitution. It is a subversion of democracy for the leadership of one industry to use its power to override the will of the people as expressed through the democratic process. Please join us in urging Microsoft to leave political decisions to the voters and refrain from denying access to ICE or any other customer on the basis of their politics.
