immigrant children

Dear Mr. President:

I am a RN in the state of Alaska and North Carolina. I have been in Alaska for the last 5 year but currently working as a Travel Nurse at a prison in NC which as taught me additional skills of humanity. Regardless of conviction every inmate is a patient first and should be treated with respect and give appropriate healthcare.

I have friends that have adopted children from other countries because of the convenience of getting a child with less time and inconvenience as well as expense. There are homes in Guatemala and Mexico where orphan homes are available to handle abandoned and homeless children.. I have been sending money each month to one of these home and would love to give assistance to a home here for these homeless children whom are seeking shelter. I believe we should protect the meek and not send them back to a live of fear and devastation as a child.

I believe we have become a country of the selected free and not of one that provides protection to the people of desperation and fear of life especially to children. I would like to think there would be a plan to develop group homes for these children to give them the opportunity for education and protection of violence. Even if we educated these children so that they may return and start a new program in their own countries. There are many US citizens are give tax deductible contributions to these home in other countries and may be interested in protecting children that are fleeing violence from Mexico and other countries.

I have believed in you and trusted you since you were first elected. I was so happy to see the change in America and want to see the continued change to accept everyone without prejudice. In Alaska, I am happy that people come together for a cause regardless of race or religion. It may not appear as such at times but as a Nurse I can definitely see where all patients are treated fairly. I am eager to return to Alaska because I are ready to leave NC for the same reason I left 5 years ago.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration in consideration of these need here in America. I am willing to assist you in this mission. I have feel blessed that my children received a college education here and are able to provide for themselves. All children were not blessed with freedom and a life of not fearing imminent death.
