The children of deportees are either placed in foster care, return to their parent’s native country, or grow up in the care of one parent or with relatives. The Fair Immigration Reform Movement recently launched the Keeping Families Together campaign. This campaign will lift the stories of families torn apart and emphasize our need to move towards humane immigration reform. Our government shouldn’t be breaking families and activists hope the President and Congress will keep this in mind while they work toward reforming immigration in 2013.
