As you know, much of the current federal, state, and local immigration policy being carried out across the country is adversely affecting immigrant communities. The aggressive enforcement tactics are not only disrupting the status quo, but also victimizing hard-working individuals and separating families. Meanwhile, the rights of those who are targeted as well as the best interests of our nation are being ignored. Therefore, the Church and its advocacy allies are raising awareness of the issues faced by immigrants and standing against attempts to divide people of faith and goodwill. It will take all of us working together to pass comprehensive immigration reform in the next Congress.
