While families spend time with loved ones over Easter Recess, there is a deep concern that our nation's moral compass is askew when it comes to immigration.
America's Voice, a communications campaign working to win common-sense immigration reform, has launched a video and campaign calling for individuals to write a letter to their Representatives telling them you want to see humane, just, and comprehensive immigration reform.
While Americans view the family unit to be sacred, our nation's current immigration laws continue to trample the basic human dignity of families from coast to coast. Immigration raids tear mothers from daughters and endless backlogs keep families from re-uniting. Congress must enact just, humane and comprehensive immigration reform in 2009, and restore order and justice to our laws.
People of faith, from all traditions, are joining as one to bear witness to the consequences of our broken immigration system in their congregations, service programs, communities, and schools. They want to see an immediate end to the suffering caused by immigration raids and to make sure the 111th Congress enacts immigration reform based on the tenets of family unity, justice, and humane treatment of all persons.
Write a letter to your Representatives telling them you want to see humane, just, and comprehensive immigration reform—give them something to talk about when they’re back from Easter Recess.
