President Obama, Bring DREAMer Adriana Home!
Call Rep. Lofgren at (202) 225-3072 and (408) 271-8700
Sample Script: "Hi, I am calling to urge Rep. Lofgren, as a longtime immigration reform champion, to ask President Obama to exercise his discretion and allow for the DREAMers to come home. I think she should support these kids especially given the fact that all of them grew up here, have gone to school here and consider America their home.
Adriana Paola is one of the students fighting to come home. She came to the U.S. when she was four months old and only left to attempt to build a future. Adriana has been working to survive and wants to return to her family. Adriana needs Rep. Lofgren's help to come home. Will she, the member, help?"
Optional Talking Points:
- Adriana was unable to transfer her U.S. credits in Mexico and with limited savings, she was forced to work instead;
- Adriana spent seven months working in a shelter for recently deported immigrants, seeing the pain and suffering of family seperation regularly;
- Adriana qualifies for DACA in every way other than her leaving just a few months prior to the announcement.

To President Obama, ICE Director John Morton and DHS Director Janet Napolitano:
Adriana of Phoenix, Arizona came to the U.S. from Mexico when she was 4-months old and was here for nearly 20 years before leaving in Feb. 2012 to pursue a college degree.
When she attempted to attend college in Mexico, Adriana was unable to transfer her U.S. credits and with limited savings, was forced to work rather than go to school. She spent seven months working at a shelter in Nogales, Mexico, helping recently deported migrants. There Adriana saw first hand the terror brought upon families and the injustice of deportation.
Having left only to further her education, Adriana wants to return to Phoenix. She left just a few months before the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was announced in June 2012 and qualifies in every other way.
While attending high-school in Phoenix, AZ, Adriana was selected to paint two murals on the walls of her school. All of Adriana's friends still live in Phoenix and want her home. I urge you to take immediate action, and that you bring Adriana home.
