Tomorrow, Monday, February 26, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is leading a national call-in day to urge Congress to take action to protect the Dreamers (immigrants brought to the US at a young age and protected from deportation under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program) from deportation by working out a legal solution to their situation. PLEASE participate in this call-in tomorrow. It will only take a few minutes, and of course you do not need to be Catholic to do it.
Here’s what you do:
1. Please call 855-589-5698 to reach the Capitol switchboard, and press 1 to connect to your Senators.
Once you are connected to each Senator’s office, please ask the person on the phone to deliver this simple message:
“I urge you to support a bipartisan, common-sense, and humane solution for Dreamers:Protect Dreamers from deportation and provide them with a path to citizenship.
Reject proposals that undermine family immigration or protections for unaccompanied children.
As a Catholic, I know that families are not “chains,” but a blessing to be protected. Act now to protect Dreamers, our immigrant brothers and sisters.”
2. Please call 855-589-5698 a second time to reach the Capitol switchboard again, and press 2 to connect to your Representative. Once you are connected to the Representative’s office, please ask the person
After completing your call, please go to http://www.justiceforimmigrants.org to learn more about Dreamers and find other ways to voice your support.
