Many of the cooks in this country’s kitchens are illegal immigrants who are doing hard work for little pay, and sometimes have more than one job to support families both here and in their native countries. The Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement are agencies that are supposed to shield us from terrorists–not those looking for an opportunity or seeking asylum in this nation of immigrants. Should it not be un-American, as well as inhumane, to separate families?
Please send an email to your local congresspersons, especially if they are Republicans, and ask that they not block Obama’s action to stop the harrowing and horrifying process of deportation for many spouses and parents of U.S. citizens. Maybe you know someone–who does your yard work, cooks your dinner, or cleans your house–help him or her.
