ACLU: illegal alien immigrants …have rights under our Constitution ? CPP’s .. NOT SO MUCH ?

For almost 100 years, the ACLU has worked to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States.

Another young girl has been thrust into the center of a struggle with the federal government. We have her back – and I hope I can count on you to join the fight.

Last week, Border Patrol agents stalked 10-year-old Rosa Maria as she went to the hospital for gall bladder surgery. They camped outside her hospital room, waiting for Rosa Maria – who has cerebral palsy – to regain consciousness. Then they locked her in a detention center, 150 miles away from her family.

First Jane Doe, now Rosa Maria. This cruel and unconstitutional treatment of immigrant girls must stop. We’re ready to sue if the government doesn’t release her by 3pm EDT TODAY. But first we need your help:

Call the Office of Refugee Resettlement today and demand they release Rosa Maria Hernandez back to her family immediately.

The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) had no legal authority to detain Rosa Maria, and her detention violates her constitutional rights to her parents’ care and support. We sent ORR a letter demanding they release Rosa Maria by 3pm EDT on Tuesday, October 31, 2017. If they don’t, then we’ll sue.

The public outcry in support of Jane Doe put ORR’s director, the rabidly anti-choice Scott Lloyd, on notice. We need to raise our voices again for Rosa Maria – and make sure we hold Lloyd accountable for his cruel and unconstitutional treatment of this girl, too.

Please make a call right away demanding the Office of Refugee and Resettlement release 10-year-old Rosa Maria back into the care of her family today.

This elementary school student needs to be recovering from surgery at home with the family that loves her, not jailed in a detention center.

Thanks for raising your voice to protect Rosa Maria and all vulnerable youth.

P.S. Already made your call? Please forward this email to three friends so we can flood ORR with phone calls.

  1. The constitution of the United states is to protect the CITIZENS of this country! It was NOT written to protect those people who are in this country illegally! I feel sorry for Rosa Maria but her parents are breaking the law and the entire family should be immediately returned to their country of origin! Quit protecting law breakers and perhaps protect the rights of those citizens who are being forced off needed medication!

  2. What is wrong with these polititicans . They are evil completely evil. How can they do this to a child. Ripping families apart . This is what we are paying them for. They are not running this country we the people are. We are taking it back. We no longer trust you.
