A Growing Movement: People of Faith for Comprehensive Immigration Reform

There is a growing movement among communities of faith to stand with immigrants as they seek to come out of the shadows and become full members of our society.

This video made by America's Voice documents the growing participation of people of faith in the call for comprehensive immigration reform. Like the Reedwood Friends Church that saw a raid tear mothers and fathers from their children or the Mountainview Friends Meeting who saw one of their families separated due disproportionate immigration laws, people of faith have realized that immigration is an issue that deeply affects our communities and one which we have the moral obligation to respond to.

"My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together."

Family unity is a human value. And we should be holding our members of Congress accountable to passing just and humane immigration reform that aligns our countries laws with our fundamental values.
