Tell Your Legislators to Support the Child Citizen Protection Act

Tell Your Legislators to Fix the Broken Deportation System and Support the Child Citizen Protection Act Now Please sign this petition to tell your legislators to fix the broken deportation system and support the Child Citizen Protection Act, H.R. 182. The Child Citizen Protection Act is an opportunity for our leaders to show that they truly value families and that the health, safety and well being of our nation’s children are among their top priority. Introduced by Representative Jose Serrano (D-NY), this bill represents a grassroots effort by families to create a safety valve for our children affected by deportations and raids. The Child Citizen Protection Act preserves the basic notion of fairness that should define the U.S. justice system—providing immigration judges with the discretion to consider the best interests of US Citizen children before ordering his or her parent deported. This bill would address some of the harshest provisions of the 1996 immigration laws that made deportation a mandatory punishment for many non-citizens. For more information about the bill please visit: http://www.familiesforfreedom.org/httpdocs/americankids.html Thank you for your support. For more information, please contact Manisha Vaze at manisha@familiesforfreedom.org.
