Dear President Trump,
I am writing to you today concerning a very important and relevant topic in today’s society, immigration. Sir, I have grown increasingly concerned with the increased ICE raids and deportations, and am asking you to please reconsider what you are doing and the effects that it has. I want to first clarify that I am all for deporting criminals and violent offenders and that I see nothing wrong with sending them back to their native country. However, I have several issues with the recent deportations I have seen on the news of nonviolent immigrants. For example, the mother who was recently deported in California had several children and was an exemplary citizen by all accounts, who had done nothing of significance wrong. Sir, think about the effect that this must have on her children. They now have no mother and are stuck to wonder if they will ever see her again, and will now most likely have a negative view of the United States government. Sir, all I am asking for you to do is to reevaluate your immigration policy and to ensure that it is reasonable and humane.
Think of this quote by Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird,” You never really understand a person until you consider things from their point of view.. until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”
Think of all the sacrifices that immigrants make on a daily basis, and then think- should they really have to worry about being deported?
