The immigration policies we envision will allow people to migrate to the United States regardless of their wealth or skill levels, to preserve their families’ unity, to change their places of employment and to apply for lawful permanent status and eventual citizenship.
Our nation is stronger because of the immigrants who come to our country every year. But millions of people live in the shadows, fearing imminent separation from their families, prolonged detention, or a return to life-threatening situations. As president, Joe Biden has promised to protect Dreamers and their families. But any executive action is a short-term response. Immigrants and their communities need permanent solutions, and the only way to do that is through congressional action.
Our Advocacy Corps members are ready to initiate crucial conversations in their communities, and to build relationships with lawmakers with the goal of creating a more just immigration system.
The new number, 15,000 refugees, is nearly 20% lower than FY2020 while the number of refugees worldwide continues to grow rapidly.
As people of faith, our call to welcome refugees and care for the vulnerable is rooted in scripture and is part of our history.
