house Bill H.R. 2095

Do Families Who Have Been Split By Immigration Law Deserve A Second Chance?

Argument in favor

This bill gives people a second chance to succeed in the U.S. and prevents families from being split apart by unfair laws.

If these people haven't committed habitual or violent crime why not! Everybody ancestors are immigrants, all of a sudden it's a problem when it's ppl from Mexico!

We are committed to creating a realistic path to legalization that strengthens our country and keeps families together. Our legal services target those greatest need in the API community — from families filing immigration petitions to disabled seniors seeking naturalization to detained immigrants facing deportation.

We should trade the lazy people who sit on there ass and collect a check every month from the government for hardworking immigrants who contribute to our economy.

Argument opposed

We already have too many illegal immigrants entering the U.S., allowing more criminals into the country can’t be good.

The fault of the tragedy lies not in our laws or country. The people who come here illegally should shoulder the consequences of their choices. Let's use an example from, oh say, ANYWHERE else. If I choose to sneak into Canada but my family goes through a checkpoint and gets there passport stamped do you think the Canadian government will simply 'let it go' because I'm split from my family? Let's try the same scenario in China. I'd be shot. That was easy. There are laws. This country is s country ruled by law. OBEY AND ENFORCE THE DAMN LAWS.

They were not split by our laws. They who have created the mess they're in by becoming criminal immigrants have nobody but themselves to blame. They chose their lives with no regard for U.S. laws.

    In this scenario, one or more family members entered this country illegally. If enforcement of the law through deportation separates family members, they can choose to reunite in their home country. Immigration is a choice, as is emigration. When citizens break the law and go to prison, do we wring our hands and fret about the separation of families. The process of legal immigration must be fixed, however until it is, the law must be executed.

    Most illegal immigrants come here out of desperation. They are great people simply trying to do what's best for their family. Any effort to keep these families together should be supported.

    Preserving family units should be the forefront of our immigration policy.

    Criminals how? Because they wanted to come here and had to illegally? Not the same as a violent/career criminal- the ones we should actually be focusing on, and we have plenty "legally" within our borders. Family is family and one of our biggest values as a nation. One might even say that this is a fairly conservative notion (strengthening/supporting "family values"? Hard work pays off?)...

    Immigration laws should never split up families. Effort should be made to naturalize their parents and assist them in gaining citizenship.

    Breaking up families is devastating. The kids feel it worse than anyone. Try teaching a 2nd grade who can't stop crying because she is so stressed about her family returning to El Salvador and leaving her in the US with extended family. She cried everyday, all day. How can we do this to her?

    A good family in which the parents are responsible to their children should not be split up regardless of immigration violations

    They are illegal so get rid of them until they stop breaking the law.
