As Congress remains at a stalemate over passage of some measure of immigration reform, either piecemeal or comprehensive, the numbers of youth left alone in the U.S. because their parents are deported or detained is on the rise. The women-centered immigration advocacy group We Belong Together is organizing a holiday letter-writing campaign fueled by the young voices. With crayons and magic markers, kids and teens affected by failed immigration policies are asking Congress to keep their families together, and move forward with reform.
