    • On June 23, 2009, by maya - THIS BILL HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ILLEGAL ALIENS! READ THE BILL!!!!!!We are in America the country who fights for a human rights!In the past fiscal year, nearly 350,000 people were deported, leaving behind thousands of American kids who need their moms and dads. A study released by Congressman Serrano in February of 2009 found that from 1998 – 2007 more than 100,000 parents of U.S. citizen children were deported. Currently, due to changes in laws in 1996, immigration judges have no discretion in almost all deportation cases and effectively serve to rubber stamp deportation orders. The Child Citizen Protection Act (HR 182) is the only bill currently in Congress that unties the hands of immigration judges to consider the best interests of U.S. citizen children during deportation proceedings.This bill is for ligal immigrants.Everyone deserves a second chance!Visit a site http://www.familiesforfreedom.org/index.html.I promiss your heart will break!!
