Welcoming Communities for immigration reform

SUN immigration billboardTen communities of Catholic Sisters based in the Upper Mississippi River Valley, including the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, are calling on President Obama and Congress to work together to enact comprehensive immigration reform. They declare themselves “Immigrant Welcoming Communities."

Immigration Task Force

The Community Faith Alliance supports immigration reform that ensures family unity, protects the rights of immigrant workers, speeds up processing of immigrants already approved, enhances the present diversity visa program and provides a clear and direct pathway to citizenship for the 11 million people who are undocumented in the United States.
