National Faith Call-in Day for Humane Immigration Reform

Mark your calendars - Jan 22, 2013

Louisville

Presbyterians across the country have joined in with other people of faith in praying and working for immigration reform, and now is our chance to make it a reality. On Tuesday, January 22nd, let's welcome the new Congress by making sure they know that people of faith demand humane immigration reform in 2013.

Call 1-866-940-2439 to be connected with BOTH of your Senators. Tell them that as their constituent and as a person of faith, you want immigration reform that provides a pathway to FULL CITIZENSHIP and prioritizes FAMILY UNITY.

Stated Clerk of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) urges Presbyterians to participate in this day of action. Read his letter here.

Please call and spread the word! Ask your friends, family members, neighbors, congregations, and communities to call their Senators. This toll-free number will remain available. For information on how to get more involved in the push for immigration reform contact Melissa in the Office of Immigration Issues at Melissa.gee@pcusa.org or (502) 569-5007.

While you’re at it, send your Senators New Year greetings by downloading and sending this postcard (PDF). There are four on a page, two for you and two to share! There are some available in bulk, contact the Office of Immigration Issues for more information. To find your Senators’ mailing address, visit the Senate’s website.

Take action in your local community to boost support for immigration reform by hosting a speakers forum or educational workshop, learn how by downloading this Tool Kit (PDF).

  1. I do believe we should not reward people for breaking our laws. Illegals should stand in line for citizenship just like all other immigrants. We had a cousin from Sweden and her husband set up a business, get jobs and put their kids in our schools and they were not able to continue getting papers to stay in the U.S.A. and apply for citizenship. Do you believe just because someone enters our country illegally and has children they should become citizens? If so, we will enable many more to come and break our laws.
