As many know, in 1995 the island nation of Montserrat suffered a terrible tragedy in the form of a catastrophic volcanic explosion. Thousands were displaced, hundreds ended up in the U.S. on temporary visas. These people have lost their homes, indeed, their very country. Few if any of the hundreds have anything or anyone to go back to. Whatever property they own is buried under tons of ash and rock; the volcano continues to vent dangerous ash, and should continue to do so for the indefinite future.

The hundreds who have since settled on our shores in the past decade are now making do as best they can, working, paying taxes, and in general making lives for themselves. But now, the Dept. of Fatherland Security wants to deport them.

This is just sick. Please contact the U.S. State Department to protest the revocation of the temporary protected status afforded the people of Montserrat.

UPDATE: I couldn't find a petition out there, so I've applied to start one with Petition Also, I'll be sharing a letter I'm sending to my reps in Congress later on today or early tomorrow. Stay tuned!...
