Idaho Immigration Family Ties Stretch Toward D.C.

June 4, 2007


It's immigration week for the U.S. Senate as it takes up an immigration reform bill loaded with more than 100 amendments. More than 1,000 Idahoans are letting Congress know that family should come first in the immigration debate. Alicia Clements with the Idaho Community Action Network believes recent raids in Idaho and across the country are splitting families up, and some of the immigration proposals wouldn't help in keeping families together.

"When they take them, they don't give them a chance to do anything. They just take them, and off - you're gone, and the children are left behind. That's what we're worried about."

Clements heard someone recently state the issue isn't about people - it's about politics, and she finds that unacceptable.

"We need more compassion, we need to get rid of the animosity that I see."

Immigration officials have said no children have been left behind after recent immigration raids. Clements says they have sworn testimony and pictures to prove that is not true.
