Like most of the country, Connecticut has a large population of immigrants and in case you’ve missed most of this election talk, immigration is a big issue right now. An issue that Presidential hopeful Donald Trump has a lot of opinions on. New Haven’s immigrant community decided to take action (read: tell him to STFU) and created a video along with national groups Reform Immigration FOR America and Center for Community Change.

The video, which is quite powerful, is a letter from New Haven deported immigrant named Felipe Montes to his sons left behind in America.

Felipe’s Letter to his Two SonsWhen Felipe Montes was deported to Mexico, his three sons were taken away by North Carolina’s foster care system. Felipe has never met his youngest child. His heart wrenching letter to his sons is brought to life in this video created by Frank Chi and Kica Matos and narrated by Congressman Luis V. Gutierrez.In few words, Felipe bravely illustrates the deep pain and anguish of family separation. Please honor Felipe and his family: CALL President Obama at 866-473-5915 & tell him to stop separating families! #StopTheRaids #FamiliesFightBack #Immigration #Immigrants #Not1MoreYou can also read more about Felipe’s story: http://ow.ly/X3rNT

The video was just released yesterday, ironically coinciding with the Obama deportation raids, and already racked up over 20,000 views on Facebook. The Facebook caption reads:

“When Felipe Montes was deported to Mexico, his three sons were taken away by North Carolina’s foster care system. Felipe has never met his youngest child. His heart wrenching letter to his sons is brought to life in this video created by Frank Chi and Kica Matos and narrated by Congressman Luis V. Gutierrez.

In few words, Felipe bravely illustrates the deep pain and anguish of family separation. Please honor Felipe and his family: CALL President Obama at 866-473-5915 & tell him to stop separating families!”

You can sign a petition here to President Obama to stop the raids. And also watch this video to see what Donald Trump is all about.
