Let Alex Come Home to Poplar Bluff

I need your help. For nearly a year now my husband has been living at Christ Church United Church of Christ in St. Louis. This time of year is especially hard for my kids who are used to seeing their father every day. My boys remember their dad taking them to Donut House every morning before dropping them off at school. But this year, Alex won't be there because our government won't let him come home.

For years, my husband and I have tried to do everything we needed to do fix Alex's status. I am a United States citizen, as are all 5 of our kids, yet there is still no way for my family to reunite. My family has lived here in Poplar Bluff for generations. This is Alex's home and we need help to keep Alex here.

We need Representative Jason Smith's help. He can reach out to immigration to find out how we can get Alex home. But his office says they don't hear their constituents demanding to keep my family together. His office clearly doesn't know Alex and doesn't know how much people in Poplar Bluff value him and love him. Please help us get Rep. Smith's attention by signing this petition asking him to look into my husband's case.

Like many of you, school is starting for my boys on August 16th. We need Alex home so he can share those special doughnut-filled mornings with our kids. For every 12 people that sign this petition, my boys and I will deliver a dozen doughnuts to Rep. Smith's office. We want him to know just how big of an impact Alex has had on all of our lives. 

Please help us get the word out! Sign this petition and ask a friend to do the same. 

I need my husband home in Poplar Bluff; I need our family back together.

Thank you,

Carleen "Carly" Garcia
