Tell President Obama: Halt Deportations Now

Tell President Obama: Halt Deportations Now

Each day that Congress delays passing comprehensive immigration reform, an estimated 1,100 undocumented immigrants are deported, leaving spouses, siblings and even children behind. These families are torn apart despite the fact that, if the “Gang of Eight” immigration reform bill or similar legislation passes, many of them could be eligible for legal status and a path to citizenship.

Although President Obama has been a vocal advocate of immigration reform, his administration has deported a record 1.5 million people. Meanwhile, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) continues its aggressive enforcement, particularly in low-income communities of color, in pursuit of numbers to fulfill the most excessive deportation quotas in our history.

While Congress debates, President Obama could make a real difference in the lives of the 11 million undocumented immigrants who have made their home in the United States. Sign our open letter developed in partnership with the National Day Laborer Organizing Network and join the many immigrant rights groups, unions and politicians calling on the President to place a moratorium on the deportation of prospective citizens.
