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
on the phone to deliver the same message as above.
After completing your call, please go to http://www.justiceforimmigrants.org to learn more about Dreamers and find other ways to voice your support.
