Dear Friends, Happy New Year!

I know many people may have their reservations about immigration issues and would prefer to stay out of it.  Some who maybe pro-humane immigration laws are turned off by last years marches and protests.  They may condem the protesters for blocking streets and by-ways, for making it inconvenient for the rest of the population. 
Some say that pro-immigration may just allow the rif-raf to stay, and that it would be slap in the face for those who follow the rules. 
The reality for the majority is that many leave their countries for the pursuit of economic freedom, justice, liberty, and of course happiness.  They risk it all!  Can you imagine living in the shoes of those people? I don't know how else to convey this message, other than coming out of the shadows, and taking a risk.  I have been in this country for almost thirty years, I was smuggled in as a child to join my parents who had been here for the better part of my young life.  I have, to the best of my ability, upheld everylaw (except for this one) and have been a good upstanding citizen.  I am an immigrant woman, a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, and a friend.

This is an opportunity for you to help me reach our representatives to let them know that the current immigration policies need a real solution that will help keep families like mine stay together.

Please take a moment to read about this important issue, and join me in signing the petition. It takes just 30 seconds, but can truly make a difference. Please sign here:
