Help us Please – twin boys beg for Mother’s rights

 tan-mercado-and-boxer1This picture was taken before Shirley Tan knew that she was in fact out of legal status in the USA. The family had requested a visit to the White House and were apparently cleared – while there was an deportation order in effect. They had no idea!  LESBIAN MOTHER FACES DEPORTATION

IMMIGRATION RIGHTS IN THE USA – Why should our Children Suffer? by Melanie Nathan – breaking news…
Shirley Tan will be deported on April 3rd 2009.   The only way she can stay in the country is if a private bill is passed by congress or her case is adjudicated to be reopened, the latter which may not happen in time to prevent the deportation.   (see erlier post on 3.27/09)

We now are hoping for the passing of a special private bill by congress.  If you are in support of this, and want to help this family,  please send a supporting letter via e-mail to Senator Feinstein c/o Melanie Nathan -at

Also please mention the name of your congressperson , your district and your Senator/s

thank you.
