The Organization to Help Citizen Children seeks to protect children born in the United States from the trauma of being banished because of the immigration infractions of their parents.
Our society has never punished innocent children, but unfortunately the seeds for that possibility are now being sown.
This website has two purposes:
- To shed light on the need to protect innocent children from traumatic exile from what most times is their birth country, the United States.
- To lend our perspective on some common mistaken beliefs about immigrants, beliefs that impede President George W. Bush’s goal of finding a humane way to address immigration reform. In his State of the Union Address, on January 28, 2008, the President said:
“ We must also find a sensible and humane way to deal with people here illegally. Illegal immigration is complicated, but it can be resolved. And it must be resolved in a way that upholds both our laws and our highest ideals. ”
