Re: [MadisonLUChA] FW: What would you ask Janet Napolitano?
I would ask her what will she do to make sure that the human and civil right of detained undocumented immigrants are repected and enforced. Something she never did while she was Gov of Arizona, where she allowed Sheriff Arpaio to run rampant with his racist anti immigrant enforcement tactics.
I would also ask her what will she do to maintain the integrity of families as she increases enforcement only measures, which are currently inhumanely separating children from their parents and destroying those family units and in turn, jeopardizing the future of these kids.

If you had the chance to ask the Department of Homeland Security one question, what would it be?
Ask Secretary Napolitano
We'll be bringing your questions with us to the White House tomorrow to ask Homeland Security officials.
I'm going to have a chance to meet with Secretary Janet Napolitano at the White House tomorrow, and I want to bring your questions with me.
I know what I'd like to know:
- I'd like to know when Secretary Napolitano plans to show the leadership we need in the fight for immigration reform. She needs to tell the American people that she believes reform is the only way to achieve true "homeland security," not the failed deportation- only strategy of the past.
- I'd like to know why Homeland Security thinks it's a good idea to step up enforcement of our out-dated laws when the President says we need to reform the laws. We can't fix the border until we create a legal immigration system that works and that protects the rights of immigrants and US-born workers.
- I'd like to know why the White House thinks we can wait until 2010 to make real progress on Immigration Reform and getting the 12,000,000 undocumented immigrants already living here into the system and moving towards citizenship. Every month, 30-40 immigrants die trying to cross the border, thousands are detained in unacceptable detention conditions, and tens of thousands are deported - they need to start working on a solution now.
Send in your question today - I'll bring it and the questions from thousands of other activists like us with me to the White House to show the intensity of our movement, and that we can't wait to reform our broken immigration system. I'll also post your questions on our website, to inspire others to ask the tough questions the administration needs to answer.
As always, thank you for your support.
