Nebraska families and children delivered drawings and postcards to 2nd District Congressman Lee Terry’s office in Omaha yesterday asking him to support “common-sense immigration laws”. Tania Moreno was one of the speakers outside Congressman Terry’s office on Wednesday at the “Keep Our Families Together” news conference and she is asking him to change his mind and support a pathway to citizenship for those in the country illegally.
Moreno says she has heard the stories on how the outdate laws pull families apart and there are an estimated four-and-a-half million children who are citizens but have a parent without immigration papers. She says thousands of those children are in Nebraska.
Families and local leaders from around Nebraska will visit state representatives’ offices this month delivering more postcards, drawings and banners from those in Nebraska who want a clear process for citizenship.
