National Call-In Day
September 26, 2018
Join the National Call-In Day on Wednesday, September 26 to protect families and stop fueling unjust detention, deportation, and border policies. While the national crisis of family separation and harmful immigration enforcement persists, Congress has an important role to play.
Right now, Congress is debating pouring billions more dollars into immoral immigration detention and enforcement, while considering legislation that would expand family incarceration and allow for the indefinite detention of children.
Call your Members of Congress: Call your members of Congress three times to be connected to your 2 Senators and 1 Representative at 202-225-3121.
Here is a sample script: “I am your constituent from [CITY/TOWN], and [as a person of faith and a Catholic sister] I urge my Senator/Representative to reduce funding for immigration 9/21/2018detention, deportation, and border militarization. Enforcement alone without underlying reform is causing harm in my community and tearing families apart.
I also urge my Senator/Representative to reject family detention. Incarcerating children with their parents is not a solution to family separation. Rather than detention, Congress and the administration should invest in community-based alternatives to detention. My community welcomes and values immigrants, and we urge you to do the same.”
