Father’s Day Without Fathers
By: Jingru Huang It is Father’s Day this Sunday; unfortunately, many children won’t be able to celebrate it with their fathers. The current broken immigration system has torn many families apart and many fathers have either been deported or in deportation proceedings. Around 400,000 people are detained and deported every single year, including many fathers. According to the ICE Report to Congress in March 2012, parents of 46,686 citizen children were deported. These children have been living without care and support of a parent, and ICE has the ability to stop these tragedies. Immigration families and immigrant rights advocates will speak out today at ICE’s field office in Newark, New Jersey.
