Child Citizen Protection Act
Families for Freedom is inviting individuals to sign and send a petition to legislators in support of the Child Citizen Protection Act (HR 182). Introduced by Representative Jose Serrano (D-NY), this bill represents a grassroots effort by families to create a safety valve for children affected by deportations and raids. The Child Citizen Protection Act preserves the basic notion of fairness that should define the U.S. justice system—providing immigration judges with the discretion to consider the best interests of US Citizen children before ordering his or her parent deported. This bill would address some of the harshest provisions of the 1996 immigration laws that made deportation a mandatory punishment for many non-citizens. For more information, visit the FFF website.
