Looks like our state’s new administration already started off on the wrong foot.
According to Lt. Governor Dan Forest, “a person entering the United States illegally should not be afforded the privileges reserved for US citizens”. So, there you have it. Lt. Governor Dan Forest does not support DREAMers and our communities. Shame on him!
Have you made your call to Senator Hagan today? Nayely and Blanca’s mom is set to be deported in just 8 DAYS! Senator Hagan is her only hope.
Senator Kay Hagan
Washington DC: 202-224-6342
Sample Script: “Hi, I’m calling to ask that Senator Hagan support Maria Juana Perez Santiago (A# 200-576-618) and stop her deportation set for December 27, 2012. Maria Juana is the sole bread winner for her family that includes three US Citizen children. In 2010, Senator Hagan killed the DREAM Act because she wanted Comprehensive Immigration Reform. We are holding the Senator accountable to that. The Senator has a responsibility to keep this family together. Maria Juana is a low-priority case and her deportation should be stopped immediately.”
When you make a call expect to hear that the Senator can’t do anything. But she can. She has the power to do the following:
1. Issue a signed letter in support of Maria Juana Perez. The letter should specifically ask that Maria’s deportation be stopped and her request for discretion. The senator must take a position on Maria’s case.
2. Call John Morton, the director of ICE, directly and ask that he use his discretion. Senators in many previous cases have made this call.
3. Issue a private bill. Any senator can sponsor a private bill and as soon as one is issued it will put a hold on any deportation for the remainder of the congressional session.
Let us know what they tell you. And thank you for your support!
