    So many children have and are being affected by this. Stop destroying families, these children will be the future of this country. Stop hurting their lives by separating their parents. This will haunt America in the future.

    I am very dissapointed about immigration laws. I am USA citizen and my children’s father is being deported. He is the only one who helps me with them financially and emotional. it is so hard for them when they see him in jail just because he doesn’t have a paper that says that he is allow to be in the United States. We come here becuase we want a better future for ourself and our children and I don’t understand why they do this to us. It really hurts specially for the children. We are not the only ones who are going throught this matter and I feel so sad for everybody that is going throght this. These people don’t know what family really means to us and how hard it is when you have to separate families. I will like to see these people going throught this situation and see how it feels. Please stop this process and help families to be stronger and don’t make children suffer like you are doing so.

    It looks like they planned this to their best interest if the Anti-Immigration law didn’t pass in their state they had this one up their sleeves. Just goes to show how America has not changed, always trying to hurt and break families. They had all this planned.
