My dad came to the US undocumented, but he later got the chance to return to Hong Kong to bring me and my siblings here. Not everyone is this lucky. I fight for immigration reform because this opportunity should be afforded to every child.

Today we ask: is this the country we want to be? We can't pride ourselves as a nation of opportunity & compassion when everyday, we hear stories of moms and dads selflessly fighting to give their children the American Dream only to be ripped away from their families.

We are at the ICE Detention Center in Elizabeth, NJ. where ICE is denying us entry to meet with fathers separated from their families. They’re now covering the windows with paper so we can't see in. This is not America.
