Washington, D.C. –A coalition of activists and leaders from immigrant communities has issued a letter to President Barack Obama, Speaker John Boehner, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell asking for action on immigration reform.
“The president needs to take action now,” said Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World and one of the signatories of the letter. “How can we consider ourselves a morally just society when we force families to live in the dark? How can a country as wealthy and prosperous as ours grossly mistreat our brothers and sisters who come here looking for the chance of a better life?”
The letter, signed by 16 leaders, urges policymakers to fix the failures of our current immigration system by ensuring that families are not torn apart, workers are not mistreated and treated with dignity, and that all who contribute to our communities are not constantly living in fear of being forcibly removed from their loved ones.
“We must ensure that we do not wrong those who sojourn in our lands and instead focus on loving our brothers and sisters,” said Beckmann. “As a country founded on immigration and sustained by our strong moral sense, we cannot continue to play with the lives of millions of families.”
Due to Congress’ failure to implement immigration reform, the president is expected to issue an executive order addressing the immigration issue.
