Pledge to Stand with Immigrant Families: Demand Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Ever since my Grandfather who was raising me and my brother got deported, our lives have not been the same. I want my Grandfather back. And no family should have to go through what my family is going through. So since spring, I spent every afternoon and weekend volunteering with my 13-year-old brother Luis. We walked door to door all summer in the heat, and worked hard all these months to get our community registered and out to vote.

I can’t believe we are all still waiting to find out which candidates won in Arizona.

But I already know who the real winners are. It’s us.

What Luis and I worked so hard for feels really close now. Because we voted, our community has the power now to win real immigration reform.

I got started volunteering because of my grandfather was taken away from us. He worked so hard to raise my brother and me. All he was doing was supporting our family. I don’t want other families to have to go through what my family is still going through. So even though I am only 15 years old, I know I can fight. I fight for him - and for all the families in Arizona, and across the country.

Please sign this pledge to stand with me and all immigrant families to demand comprehensive immigration reform.

I hope you can join me and my brother in what we need to do next.

It was great to see so many at the rally and march on Thursday. I was out in the heat all summer registering voters in West Phoenix. Primarily in the Tolleson area. I also served as a poll worker this election and was appalled by the percentage of voters sent to the provisional table (approx 25%). Most for not being on the list or marked as having received an early ballot. Not, I repeat, not for lack of ID. Provisional ballots must be counted.
