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.

Speak out against child detention

Last month, the Trump Administration announced a proposed regulation that would endanger immigrant children. This regulation, which undermines the 1997 Flores Settlement Agreement, would increase the likelihood of indefinite detention of immigrant children and families and decrease protections for the time period when children are detained. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is currently accepting comments from the public on this proposal. This is your opportunity to make it clear that children and families do not belong in cages. 

Love thy neighbor sign

Last month, the Trump Administration announced a proposed regulation that will force choices no family should have to make – between accessing essential public benefits and advancing their immigration status. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is currently accepting comments from the public on this "public charge" proposal. This is your opportunity to make it clear that this proposal is antithetical to our country’s legacy as a nation of opportunity, built by immigrants.

Support Comprehensive Immigration Reform

President Trump has announced 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 is truly comprehensive, and that reflects our values as Americans and as Reform Jews.
