Rep Judy ChuThe Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus released a set of recommendations to the White House it says would dramatically reduce deportations that have spiked under the Obama Administration, reports Politico.

It wants an increase in the number of deportations of young undocumented immigrants deferred to a broader group of people.

About 5 million people live in families in which one member of the family is here illegally, while others are not.

“As DHS conducts its review of enforcement policies and practices, we strongly urge you to take bold action to stop the pain inflicted on families through deportations and detention,”

The Caucus also called for policies that would promote family unity.
The Obama Administration is currently reviewing its deportation policies.
“We hear that the decision will be made within the next few weeks,” Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA) and chair of CAPAC said (pictured).
