Join USCCB in Urging Humane Immigration Laws

February 08, 2024
By Tracy Abler, Justice Coordinator

Join USCCB and urge Congress to reject harmful changes to immigration law as a condition for supplemental funding. Rev. Mark J. Seitz, Bishop of El Paso and Chairman of the USCCB Committee on Migration sent Congress a letter and you can sign to support.

In his February 6, 2024, letter to Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell, Bishop Seitz addressed several specific provisions that warranted concern, including those that would severely limit due process for noncitizens, make it even more difficult than it already is under current law for those with bona fide asylum claims to pursue protection in the United States, and create the opportunity for harmful, arbitrary, and counterproductive treatment of vulnerable persons. 

Complete this action alert to join with the U.S. bishops in opposing harmful and counterproductive changes to immigration law as a condition for supplemental funding.
