Migrant children also call for reforms in the United States
Next Sunday in the United States, children of migrant parents will lead a parade that will demand the reform of the immigration law so that their families can be at their side.
This demonstration that have been referred to as “the million voices for immigration reform”, will be carried out through the main streets of the city of Los Angeles.
Around 5 million children will meet the mobilization that will be led by Dulce Maria, a girl aged 7, who lost her mother in 2008 when the U.S. migration agents deported her.
In an interview with El Universal newspaper ,Dulce Maria, said she is excited to see her mother, because she is a good person and did nothing wrong to be separated from her.
“Dulce Maria was asleep and hidden in her house in a place where the immigration agents did not see her,” said Osvaldo Cabrera, leader of the International Latin American coalition, who have custody of the child.
Cabrera is in charge of protecting children born in the United States, whose parents had been deported, he gives them food and clothing, he also gives them the opportunity to remain in communication with their families through Internet or phone calls.
Last June, the Senate voted in favour of a draft of immigration reform that includes the opening of a pathway for citizenship for the 11 million estimated immigrants living in the United States.
