HOLA Congressional Blitz

May 15, 2017 @ 12:00 am - May 19, 2017 @ 12:00 am

HOLA Ohio logoHOLA is currently working with more than 30 children whose parents are scheduled to be deported within months.

With the Trump administration’s hardline policies leaving them with no options for relief, these parents now face a harrowing decision: leave their US-citizen children behind or bring them to a country that is foreign to them, where some will not be able to continue attending school or access urgently needed medical care.

These families are a microcosm of a massive humanitarian crisis that is tearing apart families across the country. Now is the time to act.

Our members of Congress have the power and the responsibility to end this horror. We must demand an end to this abuse.

HOLA Ohio is mobilizing concerned constituents to visit their representatives’ local offices May 15 – 19, every hour, on the hour, with two demands:

  1. Work on a comprehensive reform bill now, and
  2. Stop inhumane deportations until a reform bill is passed.
