Text of the Petition:
"Congress has failed to reunify 559 immigrant children with their families. That’s 559 children orphaned because of the U.S. government’s zero-tolerance policy, and their inability to hold DHS and ICE accountable for separating and detaining immigrant and asylum-seeking families. Congress has done nothing to fix our immigration system, DACA, or the zero-tolerance policy."
Over 600 petitions, one for each child still separated from family, were delivered to Congressman Mike Kelly’s office during this demonstration. We were proud to be among them.
"Ebert G “Bill” Beeman believes that if someone is peaceful, they should be welcome to immigrate to the United States."
