Family Action Network Movement (FANM) and Florida Immigrant Coalition (FLIC) invite you to join us on September 12-13 for our “Standing United for TPS on Capitol Hill” in Washington, DC. FANM and FLIC condemn the cruel decision by the Trump Administration that will leave over 300,000 TPS recipients and their 275,000 U.S. born children living in fear of an uncertain future.
TPS status gives TPS recipients a safe haven in the U.S. where they have established their lives by contributing to our economy and our communities. TPS recipients will now be faced with having to make difficult decisions that will break families and harm our economy.
The Department of Homeland Security’s decision has left families devastated. This administration’s lack of consideration for immigrants who contribute so much to our nation is reprehensible.
Marleine Bastien, Executive Director of Family Action Network Movement (FANM), stated, “We must act promptly to find a permanent solution of all TPS Recipients and their families. Deporting them to nations that are dangerous and unsafe is inhumane and cruel. We must act now.”
Maria Rodriguez, Executive Director of the Florida Immigrant Coalition added: “Why would we not give permanence to families who have called the U.S. home for decades, been vetted, screened, paid their dues and are raising US citizen children? Whether they are DACA or TPS, they deserve an opportunity for legal permanent residency, for their benefit and ours.”
Please Call the Department of Justice at 202-353-1555. Voice your concern regarding immigrant families.
FANM's mission is to empower low to moderate income families socially, financially, and politically and to give them the tools to transform their communities.
The Florida Immigrant Coalition (FLIC) is to grow the connection, capacity and consciousness of our immigrant families, organizations and communities so that we can work, live and love without fear.
