Advocates throughout New York are gathering together to lift up the voices of children hurt by raids and deportations and to show support for the Child Citizen Protection Act, an important piece of legislation currently in the House. The Child Citizen Protection Act, HR1176,would allow immigration judges to consider the best interest of U.S. citizen children before deporting their parent. Tell our leaders to stop allowing our families to be destroyed.
I’ve included details on the rally below- but for more information on the legislation please contact Families for Freedom: 718-858-9658×204 – www.familiesforfreedom.org
