Statement FCNL Submits Comment Opposing Proposed Rule on Public Charge  

On December 10, 2018, FCNL submitted a comment opposing a proposed rule that would dramatically expand the definition of what it means to be a "public charge."

Update Act in Hope this Season 

Even as our hearts are broken with the constant attacks on our immigrant and refugee neighbors, we are reminded that we are an Advent people - a people of hope.

Action Alert Advocate for Welcome, Not Walls  

We live in troubling times. First, the administration separated children from their parents as they sought safety by crossing our border with Mexico. Hundreds remain separated today. Then, they responded to a humanitarian crisis by deploying troops in border communities and actively teargassing asylum seekers. Today, they are building walls through communities and detention camps on military bases to house refugee families.

Legislative Ask Stop Fueling Unjust Deportation, Detention & Border Policies  

Every additional dollar for immigration detention and enforcement allows the administration to carry out policies that erode the rights and safety of immigrants, refugees, and migrants.

Minute on Immigration 

Equality, community and integrity are foundations of Quaker belief. Therefore, as immigrants and refugees in our community encounter trials such as family separation, incarceration, internment and deportation, Santa Fe Monthly Meeting is called to put these beliefs into action. We will support these neighbors in their daily lives, providing aid, companionship, friendship and safety in whatever ways we are able.

Minute of Support for Immigrants and Refugees 

We encourage local, state, and national governments to develop immigration policies which are fair, just, and respectful. Any reform of our immigration system must also seek to address the root causes of persecution and economic inequality that lead to the often desperate measure of fleeing one’s homeland in search of a better life.

Letter Faith Community to Congress: Reduce Funding for Unchecked Immigration Enforcement 

FCNL joined thirty-six national, faith-based organizations calling on Congress to rein in funding for unchecked, unaccountable detention, deportation, and border enforcement policies.

Update How Congress Should Respond to the Migrant Caravan 

Hint: It’s not by locking people up or out.

People are fleeing violence, corruption, instability, and hunger in the Northern Triangle of Central America and traveling together for safety to Mexico and the United States. What can Congress do?

Update Mass Incarceration, Deportation and Hispanic Heritage Month  

During Hispanic Heritage month we celebrate the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

Legislative Ask Stop Incarcerating Children and Separating Families 

Reject legislation that expands family detention. Instead, increase oversight of immigration and border enforcement, cut funding for deportation and detention, and invest in community-based alternatives to detention.
