My message: Make getting a green card easier

Dear future president,

I want the president to care about immigrants because my parents are immigrants, and I don’t want to lose them. Many kids are left without parents or a family members because they were deported. So if you are going to deport someone, make sure it’s the bad people, like people from the drug cartel. I know people come illegally, but they want a better life here, for their family and for themselves.

Yes, immigrants are taking jobs, but some jobs are jobs people don’t want to take, like a gardener. Have you ever seen a white guy driving a truck carrying a lawnmower, weed whacker and other gardening tools? So if you don’t want to see families be torn apart, then make getting a green card easier. As it stands, you need a family member who is a U.S. citizen and is 21 and over to be able to get a green card, so immigrants who don’t have U.S. citizen family members find applying for a green card difficult. The president better think twice if he or she is going to talk badly about immigrants.
