Immigration

Today, we face the enormous challenges posed by our nation's broken immigration system. More than ever, we need comprehensive immigration reform that is based on streamlined processing, a commitment to obey the rule of law, payment of taxes owed, family reunification, and a path to citizenship.

Take Action on Immigrant Detention
Rabbi Esther Lederman speaking on stage

This Administration's attacks on immigrant communities have resulted in widespread detention and mistreatment. Urge your Representative to support legislation that would improve oversight for and alternatives to detention.

Tell Congress: Defund Deportations

Through the appropriations process, Congress has the power to decide where the government spends its money. We're asking them to use that power to stop deportation and detention of immigrants.

Support a pathway to citizenship for DREAMers and TPS holders

The administration’s decision to bring an end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in September 2017 put over 800,000 immigrant youth at risk of deportation. The administration has also terminated Temporary Protected Status—a humanitarian form of immigration status for those who cannot safely return to their home country due to extraordinary circumstances, like armed conflict and environmental disaster—for 98 percent of all holders. Congress must act immediately to protect DREAMers and TPS holders from deportation and provide a permanent, legislative fix that provides a pathway to citizenship.

Support Immigration Reform

President Trump has responded to our country's immigration problems by announcing plans to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, a deeply misguided means of addressing the very real challenges facing our immigration system. Urge your Members of Congress to support immigration reform that reflects our values as Americans and as Reform Jews.
