Activists on both sides of the immigration debate have condemned the Obama administration's removal policies for different reasons, some valid, some specious. One fact is clear, however.
Immigration reform is real for me, my family and my community. What we want is what every American family wants: to continue studying, working, raising our families, contributing to this country, and most importantly, staying together without the constant threat of deportation.
Economic development in immigrant neighborhoods can have both positive and damaging effects for both immigrants and low- and middle-income residents.
Hardworking immigrant families' vulnerability to separation -- at the rate of 1,100 deportations daily -- has created the urgency for us to interconnect in a way that binds us together.
