President Obama undermines all of my efforts to keep my family hopeful and strong. A cold slap in the face, reminding immigrants that they can be forcibly removed from their homes without warning - and consequently sent to the dangers they fled in their home country.
If we are truly to act based on principles of "decency, fairness, and humanity," the forcible removal of precisely the people most likely to have been mistreated under the current immigration court system is both inhumane and illogical.
This past weekend, the raids began, with parents and children being detained in military-style operations in several southern and border states. Fear has spread through immigrant communities around the country.
