Do you support immigration reform?

A few weeks ago I, along with tens of thousands of others across the nation, participated (as a listener), on a conference call with Congressman Luis Gutierrez of Illinois and other prominent Latino legislatures. The topic at hand was immigration reform.

It was pointed out that on the campaign trail, President Obama promised comprehensive immigration reform within his first year in office. Hermanos, we are weeks away from Christmas, it’s not going to happen on time, (does anything in government?), but we need to help make it happen as soon as possible. There is no time to waste as people are deported, families separated, lives broken.

Rep. Gutierrez promised that in the coming weeks, a campaign for immigration reform would be launched and he stressed how important our support would be. Now he has introduced a bill to Congress called the “CIR ASAP Act”. Please join me in contacting Congress and telling them you support this bill. It will take you only a minute. Just head over to Reform Immigration for America, fill out your name and address, and click “send”.

¡El pueblo unido, jamás será vencido!

    • CUTY – Obviously we disagree on politics, but I’m not in the mood for a debate today! I just wanted to get this information out there for those who might be interested. This is a cause that is close to my heart, and I will always believe that at the end of the day we are all people deserving of the same human rights and opportunities, regardless of where on this Earth, (carved into territories by Man), we just happened to be born.

  1. Acabo de descubrir tu blog y dejame decirte que estoy pasando por esta situacion la desintegracion de mi familia, despues de 12 anos de vivir en USA fui deportada y ahora estoy en Mexico y mi esposo sigue alla, tengo un ninito ciudadano de 5 anos, estuve encerrada 2 meses en Florence Az, y no sabemos que va a pasar con nuestras vidas, es triste y es una realidad, que muchos lo estamos viviendo…

    • @ Adriana – Quiero decirte con todo mi corazón, espero que tú situación cambia por lo mejor muy pronto. Me da más dolor que puedo explicar en palabras por escuchar la historia de tú familia. Ojalá vamos a tener reforma migratoria en 2010 y las familias que estan separadas van a estar reunificadas. Gracias por compartir tu historia porque ayudas a gente que no entiende. Hay gente que no piensan que hay humanos reales sufriendo en la manera que sufres — tú familia es un ejemplo perfecto por mostrar la realidad del problema con la ley de inmigración que tenemos ahorita.
