Email Congress to Enact Comprehensive Immigration ReformFrom American Friends Service Committee:
After years of failed attempts to develop new immigration legislation there is a post-election buzz: something might actually happen to fix our broken immigration system.
Your voice is critical in shaping this moment. Please email your congressional delegation today. Let them know you will no longer stand for policies and practices that tear apart families and communities, and call on them to work for just and humane reform.
In the hope that we can truly bring fundamental and lasting change, the American Friends Service Committee’s immigrant constituents put forth seven principles that would recognize the dignity of all migrants and protect human rights.
Create justice with humane economic policies.
Protect the labor rights of all workers.
Develop a clear path to permanent residence.
Respect the civil and human rights of immigrants.
Demilitarize the U.S.-Mexico border.
Make family reunification a top priority.
Ensure that immigrants and refugees have access to services.
