Sanders starts petition against surge in deportations

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is taking a tough stance against the Obama administration's plan to begin a surge in deportations of illegal immigrants with a new petition sent to supporters Saturday.

In an email, Sanders mentions his father, who immigrated to the U.S. from Poland in 1921, and said thousands of women and children have fled Latin America over the last several years.

"Sending women and children back into harm's way after they already fled horrendous violence in Central America is painful and inhumane, and must be stopped," the email reads.

The petition asks President Obama to "protect families by extending Temporary Protective Status for those who fled from Central America."

Earlier this week, it was reported that the Obama administration is planning a new wave of deportation raids in May and June focused on recently immigrated women and children.

Sanders and Democratic rival Hillary Clinton immediately spoke out against the plan.
