A Call to Reunite a Minor with her Family sign now

To: The U.S. Congress and Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services

We, the undersigned, urge you to exercise your legislative capacity to reunite the Powell Family with their 16 year old daughter and sister, Emaline Collins, who has been separated from them due to issues at the Canadian/US border.

On July 9th, coming home from a family vacation, Emaline was denied entry at the border because she did not have a green card. At the time Emaline was a 16 year old minor, and her mother was unaware that she required a green card, as she had crossed the border 2 times prior on her own to visit family in Canada.

Emaline (Emma) has lived with her family in Campbell, CA for the last 7 years, attended Westmont High School, has cultivated friendships as well as a boyfriend, has basically grown up in the US. She's an outstanding artist, musically talented, and is generally an average teenager. She loves anime and drawing manga, reading, theater, animals, and one day hopes to be an interior designer. Presently she is living with her Grandmother and Step Grandfather, Judith and Larry Cooper, in Cumberland, BC, Canada. Her mother was informed it could take at least 4 years for her application to go through.

We urge you to allow her to be reunited with her family, with the people she loves and who love her.

    In the case of this girl, it is absolutley ridiculous she is not being allowed to re-enter the U. S. with her family. Please take care if the matter...NOW!

    Not allowing this person to reunite with her family when she is a citizen is absurd. What has the U.S. come to when they wont allow a citizen to return home?
