A Call for Just Immigration Policy
Dear [Decision Maker],
As a person of faith, I believe in advocating for immigration policies that honor the God-given dignity of every person, protect family unity, and promote thriving communities.In these trying times, immigrant people in the United States have become a target of political campaigns and strategies that dehumanize, devalue, and harm them. Therefore, I call for:-Humane and dignifying treatment of people, especially children, at every stage of the immigration process-An end to the criminalization of immigrants, mandatory detention, and cruel practices that harm immigrant people and separate families-Dignifying and responsible enforcement of just immigration laws that implements creative alternatives to the current appalling practices-Pathways to permanency and stability for families and people whose home has been this country and wish to have a permanent statusUltimately, I call for a creative immigration system that fairly, graciously, and thoroughly approaches human mobility.
