Oct. 7, 2011 - PRLog -- Please join us in honoring Tony, Janina and Brian Wasilewski at a special screening of the documentary film Tony & Janina's American Wedding  at the U.S. House of Representatives' Rayburn House Office Building on Wednesday October 12, 2011 at 445pm.

Four years ago, wife and mother Janina Wasilewski was deported from the US, taking their then-six year old son Brian with her. The personal and passionate film Tony & Janina's American Wedding  follows husband and father Tony's struggle to reunite his family and restore his wife's honor following a 20 year odyssey within the American immigration system.

Driven by a grass roots campaign led by the filmmakers, reaching out to everyday Americans – and with support from members of Congress, the legal and human rights communities, the Wasilewski family was recently reunited in Chicago.  Janina has just received U.S. Permanent Residency Status.

The Wasilewski family, and filmmakers Ruth Leitman and Steve Dixon, will be in attendance at this important event. Featured speakers include Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Rep. John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) and others.  

We invite members of Congress, their staff, families, concerned citizens and the general public to join us in recognizing the Wasilewskis and the filmmakers for their work in public service and advocacy to highlight our fractured US immigration system.
