Joseline, 9, and Ariana, 7, are pleading to their President to let them stay in Columbus, Ohio, their home. Their mom, Esmeralda, could be deported by the Obama Administration within a matter of days, even though she’s been in the country for 14 years. With no other family nearby, Joseline, Ariana, and their baby brother -- all U.S. citizens -- will be forced to leave their own country.These girls will suffer the most if this family is deported. Joseline and Ariana are at the top of their class and have received awards for good grades and behavior. But if the Obama Administration deports their mom, they'll be forced to uproot to Michoacán, Mexico, where drug cartel violence is a part of daily life.These children shouldn't be expelled from the country of their birth. Their mom would qualify for the path to citizenship in the Senate's immigration bill, but House Republicans refuse to vote on it. President Obama says he supports this legislation -- so why is he punishing U.S. citizens like Joseline and Ariana for the House's inaction? Please help Esmeralda and her family now!
U.S. Attorney, David J. Hickton -- who was appointed by President Obama -- has decided to go after Alfredo of all people, a model citizen and father. Alfredo is a constant and active father in his children's lives. Because of his status, Alfredo lived in constant fear of getting picked up by ICE and separated from his children. In February, Alfredo was stopped by the police on the way to the mall. Even though Alfredo was only a passenger in the car the Border Patrol was called. He was taken away in handcuffs in front of his 11 year old daughter. Alfredo has been held in a detention cell in Erie, Pennsylvania for over a month and a Grand Jury has indicted him for "illegal re-entry," a federal felony. Alfredo's only crime was reuniting with his family. Now U.S. Attorney David Hickton and the Obama Administration is making his entire family pay the price. Please take action now!
President Obama is deporting 1,010 immigrants every single day. This is just unacceptable. Our families need relief and we won’t stop till we win it. We’ve been calling on Republicans to pass immigration reform for months and it looks like they’re shutting the door on reform. If they do, we’ll make sure Republicans pay a big price in upcoming elections and in the meantime we’ll be turning up the heat on President Obama to use his authority to keep our families together. With 1,010 deportations every day, we have no time to lose.

Right now Brigido could likely qualify for a pathway to citizenship that's currently being blocked by Republican leaders in the House.

He runs an insurance business with his fiancée Maria, and is a loving father to their two kids.

Tell your Member of Congress to cosponsor the new immigration bill with a path to citizenship in the House!
If Speaker Boehner can give Rep. Steve King a vote on his hateful amendment to deport DREAMers, why can't he give us a vote on a path to citizenship?
Speaker Boehner: Rep. Steve King's place on the House Judiciary Committee only gives him a platform to spew his ugly rhetoric. We need you to stand up to Rep. King and remove him from the committee now!
