#BringThemHome

Today, at 1 PM EST, WATCH LIVE as 8 'Dreamers' with applications for legal admission in hand, request to be allowed to return home to the United States at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Immigrant youth leaders currently in Mexico include Lizbeth Mateo, Lulu Martinez and Marco Saavedra. Lizbeth grew up in Los Angeles, and she had not seen her family living in Mexico for fifteen years. Lulu Martinez came to the U.S. at the age of three, and has spent years working for immigrant rights and LGBT rights. Marco Saavedra is a poet and a painter. He graduated from Kenyon College in Ohio, and now works at his family’s restaurant in New York City.  All of them have been living in the United States since before the age of 16.

Accompanying them would be several other undocumented youth who have left or been deported from the country. These young people -- Adriana, Luis, Maria, Claudia, Ceferino -- are the victims of a broken border policyWe support families divided by the border. We want to bring them together.

How Can You Help?

  1. Join the real immigrant rights movement in one of the solidarity events happening across the country in Boston, Massachusetts, Cincinnati, Ohio, Pomona, California, Chicago, Illinois, Asheville, North Carolina. More will be added in the coming days. 
  2. Sign petitions to bring home the other dreamers accompanying the trio:  AdrianaLuis, Maria, Claudia, Ceferino.
  3. Reblog and share the videos by Lizbeth MateoMarco SaavedraLulu Martinez.
  4. Donate to help Lizbeth, Lulu and Marco as they come out of the shadows at the border with the other dreamers. 
  5. Sign up to be a phone activist and make calls to help the immigrant rights movement. 

The Obama Administration has created a deportation machine resulting in the destruction of over 1.7 million lives, and the devastating separation of those families by the border. Those 1.7 million people are not lost and forgotten; rather, they are people who deserve to have the choice to return to their home in this country.

The fight to keep families together does not end after deportation. If you believe in immigration reform, you believe that forcing them to leave was wrong. Obama has 1.5 million broken promises to deal with. He’s going to deal with them now.

Bring them home now.
