Dear Mr. President:
Thank you for the opportunity to write you! My name is Nayeli Mejia and I am currently in the 8th grade, attending Magnolia Science Academy 8 in Bell, California. I am writing this letter because I have some concerns regarding immigration reform. In my ELD class we were asked to choose something that we would like changed in our country and that you as president would be able to change. I think the president should allow illegal immigrants to say in the US.
One reason this change is important is deporting immigrants hurts U.S. citizens. According to Newsela, deporting immigrants will break up families.
Another reason this change is important is because kids are getting abused in other countries.
Newsela states, the refugee law allows the kids to stay here and be protected as refugees.
The last reason that this change is important is because farms need workers to harvest their crops.
Newsela tells us that, if they allow illegal immigrants to stay in the US it will make it easier for the farmers to harvest the crops and milk the cows.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and I hope you can make this important change for America!
