Subject: Stop billion dollar psychological injuries deportation brings children

Dialoguemakers thank the Gang of Eight for spear heading the immigration reforms our Nation needs1. We hold 1.3 billion dollar forensic mental health injuries are wrongfully forced on Arizona-based children of incarcerated immigrant parents. If our formulas are applied to the children of all incarcerated immigrant parents held in US prisons/detention centers today, we hold there's about $21 billion damages nation wide. And, if that psychological harm were perpetrated upon children of 11 million undocumented dwellers, it'd exceed 105 billion dollars. Those are expenditures the USA must not pay. Why? See the:

Mr. Durbin this has been ardous to put forth without resources. We send these briefs before the USDCAz and ask you to guide us to resources so we may continue the work and prevent our Nation from forcing further scars on the psychological health of children. Recall a major percentage are US citizens.
