Keep Families Together

I've often said behind every politicized issue, there are human lives at stake. Gay marriage isn't about property rights or religion, it's about people wanting to make a commitment to each other. The same can be said of immigration reform. In many cases, it's about keeping families together. Children who have only known life in the United States needing a parent who has been deported.

The video of a mother talking to her children through a border fence just breaks my heart. Immigration reform isn't some political football that gets kicked around, these are peoples' lives. People who's lives deserve the same respect as any other. We're too willing to break up families of the marginalized in this country, either through deportation or criminalization, and it has to stop.
