The current situation Chest On the day Juarez returned home, Representative Darren Soto said the previous administration had deported her to Mexico In August 2018 “Our community in Central Florida shook to the core, but we didn’t stop fighting for her return. Now, under Biden’s administration, she’s got parole on humanitarian grounds and will have the opportunity to be present in the lives of Estella and Pamela.”
On Saturday, girls of Juarez They gathered outside the Orlando airport To wait for their mother to arrive. They brought with them a handwritten banner, “President Biden and Kamala Harris Rock!” In a video released by the immigration reform advocacy group FWD.us, Estela, the youngest of Juarez, admitted that she was “somewhat nervous” because the family had been separated for so long. She said, “Everything will return to normal, but everything will also change.”
Now reunited, the family shared their experience in an interview with Alicia Menendez of MSNBC, in which Juarez described their years-long separation as “the most painful moment I’ve ever had and maybe I’ll go through. After this, nothing gets harder than that.” They were joined in that interview by Representative Soto, who urged the need for permanent relief for the family. While the Biden administration may choose to renew Juarez’s status for one year, it is still temporary.
”[O]”Your battle is not over until Alejandra is granted permanent residency and all separated families are returned together,” Soto said in his statement made at the end of last week. “During the remainder of the 117th Congress, we must pass HR 163, the Patriot Spouse Protection Act and other major bills to reform our immigration system and prioritize families.”
Nearly 6 million Americans live with at least one undocumented family member, FWD.us said in a statement received by The Daily Cause.This means that millions of families across the country live in constant danger of secession, like Alejandra, unless Congress passes a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants currently living in the United States.
”[I]If Congress and the White House don’t take serious steps, my family is in danger of separating again, ”Juarez continued during an appearance on MSNBC.“ I can’t put my kids through this. My body won’t take it … We need Congress to act now. ” In his first speech To Congress last month, President Biden called on lawmakers to “We are ending our grueling war on immigration. For more than 30 years, politicians have talked about reforming the immigration system and we’ve done nothing about it. Time to fix it. “
