Letter to President Obama about Haitian deportation

Dear President Obama,

The American Friends Service Committee is disturbed with the Administration’s announced resumption of arrests and deportations to Haiti of Haitian nationals with prior criminal convictions. We ask that this policy be immediately suspended and that available alternatives such as parole or community supervision be enacted instead.

After defeat of the DREAM Act

The American Friends Service Committee is disappointed that the United States Senate did not improve and pass the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM Act). But AFSC is committed to advocating for overhaul of the existing immigration system to guarantee dignity and respect for all immigrant families.
