Church hosts Father’s Day Blessings with hope for Immigration Reforms

 

LINCOLN PARK, June 18, 2012: Today, a 4.0 G.P.A. immigrant student from Detroit and an immigrant father joined parishioners at Christ the Good Shepherd Church to celebrate a major immigration policy reform by the Obama Administration.  Juan Sancen, 2012 César Chávez High School Salutatorian, who happens to be undocumented, now has an even brighter future since he will no longer be the target of immigration authorities.  Jorge García is a father who has lived in the U.S. and whose children are US citizens.  Like Juan, he is undocumented.  Unlike Juan, his family is still in danger of being torn apart.

 

“We are so happy for this bright young man,” said García.  “My wife Cindy, my children and I can only hope and pray, that our family’s story has such a happy ending.  But it must come soon.”

 

García was brought to the U.S. by his parents at age ten.  He is now 32 with three children and a wife, Cindy, all U.S. citizens.  Though a normal resident that has worked and paid taxes for decades, he is in imminent danger of deportation unless federal authorities stick to priorities they established a year ago.  That would mean people like Jorge who have families and no criminal records would not be prosecuted while immigration authorities focused on hardened criminals.

 

“The recent shift in priorities by the Obama Administration is good sign,” said Diego Bonesatti of Alliance for Immigrants Rights and Reforms – Michigan.  “We hope this Father’s day will cause the Administration to reflect on the need to protect all immigrant families.”
