Informing the Latino Community Online on Issues Impacting Your Life

Putting a Human Face on the Broken Immigration System

I thought I share the following press release I received through the Latinos For Obama Newswire:

Congressman Joe Baca to Hold a Community Meeting for Families of Immigrants Saturday, March 7th 9:00am, Saint George Catholic Church 505 North Palm Avenue Ontario, California

Families United

If you are a United States citizen or a Legal Permanent Resident who fears that a family member, friend, or loved one may be at risk of deportation, U.S. Congressman Joe Baca invites you to attend a community meeting to share your story on how the deportations of a loved one has or could tear your family apart.
Achieving comprehensive immigration reform will not be easy, and it will continue to require a bipartisan effort from Congress. However, by putting a human face on the issue and addressing the harm that our broken immigration system is causing millions of U.S. citizens, we can begin to put a stop to the raids and deportation-only policies that rip our families apart.


I also know that Rep. Gutierrez has started its own tour on this issue to put a human face on the issue of fixing the broken U.S. immigration system. Unfortunately, this issue was demonized, primarily by the GOP, when it came up for discussion in Congress in 2007.
