We want amnesty granted to Tara Ammons Cohen, a legal adoptee and American in every way but for a technicality not of her own doing. To deport her would be not only a terrible injustice to her and her family, it would be a slap in the face to all adoptees and adoptive parents in America. The laws of adoption state the child will be legally “as if born to” the parents. If Tara Ammons Cohen had been born to her adoptive parents she would not be facing deportation now. To treat her differently based on her birth—something completely beyond her control—is wrong. You yourself stated the drug charges are weak. Mrs Cohen has had numerous letters written on her behalf. Her family wants her home. We add to those voices. You can undo a terrible injustice done not only to Mrs Cohen but also her mother, husband and children. Restore Tara Ammons Cohen to her family and clear the way for her to gain legal citizenship.
V. Oren Stewart, a citizen and adoptee.
