Next week the Catholic community across the country is planning to double-down on its commitment to stand with Dreamers.
On Monday, February 26, USCCB is sponsoring a National Call-In Day for Dreamers. In their announcement, Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, USCCB President, Archbishop José Gómez, USCCB Vice President, and Bishop Joe Vásquez, chair of the USCCB’s Migration Committee said: “Our faith compels us to stand with the vulnerable, including our immigrant brothers and sisters. We have done so continually, but we must show our support and solidarity now in a special way. Now is the time for action."
Your advocacy is critical. We hope to drive thousands of calls to Congress. Please call 1-855-589-5698 and press 1 to be connected to your Senators. Call again and press 2 to be connected to your Representative.
Once connected please ask the person on the phone to deliver this simple message to your legislator:
“I urge you to support a bipartisan and humane solution for Dreamers: Protect Dreamers from deportation and provide them with a path to citizenship. Reject proposals that undermine family immigration or protections for unaccompanied children. As a Catholic, I know that families are not “chains,” but a blessing to be protected. Act now to protect Dreamers, our immigrant brothers and sisters.”
