Jesuits Urge Congress to Reject Anti-Immigrant Legislation
February 6, 2015 — In a letter to U.S. Representatives
and Senators, the Jesuits of Canada and the United States urged members of
Congress to reject amendments to the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations
Bill that will hurt immigrants.
The letter called on the Senate and House of Representatives
to pass the bill “free of harmful immigration amendments that seek to block or
undermine the recent Executive Action on immigration.”
The Jesuits urged Congress to “remember the humanity
of our migrant brothers and sisters as you consider these important immigration
“Going forward, rest assured that we will continue
to challenge you to support immigration policies that treat our undocumented neighbors
with the dignity and respect that all people deserve.”
