Join with our friends at Comunidades Unidas and Mormon Women for Ethical Government for a Day of Action TODAY to support immigrant families!
Congress is considering two bills that defy Utah values and our identity as a state the welcomes immigrants and those seeking refuge from danger. Utahns believe we should always put families first – that families should be together. Call your congressional representatives TODAY to ask them to vote NO on:
- The Border Security and Immigration Reform Act (Sponsor: Speaker Ryan) and
- The Securing America’s Future Act (Sponsor: Rep. Goodlatte/McCaul)
These bills do nothing to end family separations but instead provide limited legal protections to Dreamers, make it easier to deport more children more quickly, allow the government to keep children in jail for longer periods of time while shutting the door on asylum seekers. Both bills will create more family separation and put more children in jail.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
- Ask your representatives to vote NO on the above bills and to stand up for Utah families and develop a bipartisan solution that will keep families together while providing a permanent solution for the more than 10,000 Dreamers in our state.
We want to show Utahns are united against family separation, so we ask you to organize your friends, family, and coworkers to make phone calls, send tweets and Facebook messages ALL DAY LONG TODAY!
