Department of Homeland Security to find and deport hundreds of would-be

these refugees before they can get legal counsel. When refugees have legal counsel over 90% win
their case for suppression of deportation to avoid the life threatening danger
of drug lords, gangs, and military/police regimes in Central America.

President Obama to speak out immediately and direct the Department of Homeland
Security NOT to move forward with raids and deportations of
Central American children and families fleeing violence. Children and families
fleeing for their lives must be protected and supported, not apprehended and
