“The time is now for all of us. All of us writing you this letter are in deportation proceedings. We have faced our worst fears and refused to let them conquer us.

The National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON), together with individual petitioners, has submitted a rule making petition to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) seeking a temporary suspension of deportations for the millions of undocumented immigrants who would likely benefit from near–term congressional action on immigration.
