FB: Deportations have gone wild, are tearing apart families

NC NOW facebook posting from Feb 20, 2014.

Some immigrant families are being torn apart – any attention of the police in some cases can trigger jail and deportation. According to the booklet, more people have been deported from the US since 2000 than in the full century before it.

It is crazy difficult to immigrate legally to the US, with backlogs and crazy processes. This is the horror of how the US is dealing with it now.

“Immigration judges often cannot consider the individual circumstances of anyone’s case and must order automatic detention and deportation, even if you have a green card, TPS, DACA or are a refugee.”

Even if you have kids born here and have been living and working in the US for decades.

Just wrong.  Please take a look.
