Take Action: Deportation Defense

Joining leading immigration reform organizations, the Reform Movement is working to halt the nearly 1,100 deportations that occur daily, which is more than at any point in U.S. history.

By making direct calls to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) we are working on the ground to prevent the deportations of community members, fathers, mothers, caretakers and so many more who should be low priority enforcement targets. In line with core Reform Jewish values of “welcoming the stranger," we urge you to learn more and call upon ICE to exercise their discretion in the cases of these people and their families.

Your calls to ICE could help save Juan from deportation!

One of the coolest parts so far about working as a legislative assistant at the RAC is the opportunity to learn about such a wide array of political issues. Coming into the job, I knew almost every bill going through Congress that dealt with U.S.-Israel relations, but aside from that I never had the time […]
From early in the nation's history, US immigration policy has reflected the tension between hospitality and hostility - between the desire to welcome immigrants and the perceived need to limit immigration to protect the interests of those already here.
