SINCE THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY BAGAN, ATTACKS ON OUR IMMIGRANTS HAVE PROCEEDED AT A BREAKNECK PACE. AFTER COURT SUSPENSION, THE FIRST ORDER WAS STOPPED. HOWEVER, WITH THE PUBLISHING OF THE NEW HOMELAND SECURITY GUIDE, DEPORTATIONS HAVE TAKEN AN INHUMAN TURN, WITH TRAFFIC TICKETS NOW BEING USED FOR DEPORTATIONS AND ICE OFFICERS ENACTING THEIR OWN INDIVIDUAL ACTIONS. WE MUST STAND IN SUPPORT OF PEOPLE WHERE INJUSTICE IS FOUND.
CONGRESS IS THE ONLY ENTITY TO FORMULATE REASONABLE IMMIGRATION POLICY AND PEOPLE WHO KNOW AND APPRECIATE OUR IMMIGRATION VALUES MUST CONTACT LAWMAKERS WITH SOUND RECOMMENDATIONS. "IMMIGRATION lAW 2013'(ABOVE" DETAILS THE PAST EFFORTAND CAN GUIDE RECOMMENDATIONS.
During this time of extreme change, thousands of stories are surfacing of abuse and tragedy STAY INFORMED!!! see links below and subscribe to emails: NEWS!!!!!
