We are writing to express what we feel the undocumented community needs from immigration reform. We respectfully ask your full consideration of this letter. This letter is based out of conversations that we had with our families over the last few months. We wanted to share our best thinking with you and what our families have told us.
The letter was written & signed by over 80 undocumented leaders: Dreamers, undocumented parents, and children of undocumented parents from across the country. This letter is not intended to attack anyone in any way. We understand that although we have different strategies and tactics, we all have the same goal of keeping families together. We hope that this letter will open a conversation between us so that we can do what's best for our community.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely, Jose Patiño on behalf of the Open Letter Signers
