Rejecting Cruel Immigration Policies
There is a humanitarian crisis at our Southern border - one of separated families and detained asylum seekers. It is a crisis of walls and migrant deaths. The U.S. government has responded by pouring billions into an enforcement system that is worsening the crisis.
We can change this. Congress is working this summer to develop spending bills for the next fiscal year (2020). This is their opportunity to stop fueling the cruel machinery of immigration detention and enforcement.
Your elected officials needs to hear from you while they are home for recess. Will you take two minutes to advocate for just and humane immigration policies?
As a Quaker organization, we believe we are called to welcome the stranger. As a matter of public policy, we seek immigration reforms that recognize the gifts, contributions, and struggles of immigrants to ensure equity and justice for all. I hope you will join me in calling on Congress to break the status quo by divesting from enforcement spending and investing in true humanitarian assistance.
