Dear Cabrini Collaborator,
Title 42 is coming to an end this Thursday, May 11, and the House of Representatives is considering legislation (H.R. 2 – the Secure the Border Act) which proposes a crack down on the number of migrants crossing the border. The bill also proposes resuming construction of the border wall, ending the policy of “catch and release”, increasing the number of Border Patrol Agents and requiring the detention of migrant families making it more likely that they will be deported to very dangerous situations.
It’s clear that meaningful, collaborative border solutions are needed, now, more than ever. Both Democrats and Republicans in Congress must come together to pass needed immigration reforms, including border solutions that are secure, efficient and humane.
We are asking you to join us and be in solidarity with Jesuit Relief Services efforts in urging our representatives to vote NO on H.R. 2! Please click the TAKE ACTION NOW link below, scroll down and enter your info – it only takes a minute or two to complete and is of utmost importance!
Together in advocacy and prayer,
Guadalupe Province Immigration Commission
