Jesuits Urge Congress to Reject Anti-Immigrant Legislation

February 6, 2015 — In a letter to U.S. Representatives and Senators, the Jesuits of Canada and the United States urged members of Congress to reject amendments to the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Bill that will hurt immigrants.

The letter called on the Senate and House of Representatives to pass the bill “free of harmful immigration amendments that seek to block or undermine the recent Executive Action on immigration.”

The Jesuits urged Congress to “remember the humanity of our migrant brothers and sisters as you consider these important immigration related issues.

“Going forward, rest assured that we will continue to challenge you to support immigration policies that treat our undocumented neighbors with the dignity and respect that all people deserve.”
