National Migration Week Jan 6-12

National Migration Week will be observed in dioceses around the country January 6-12. This year’s theme, “We are Strangers No Longer: Our Journey of Hope Continues,” includes a postcard campaign that calls for comprehensive immigration reform. Visit www.justiceforimmigrants.org for details on how to support the campaign. The USCCB urges all Catholics to call on Congress to pass fair and comprehensive immigration reform that will: ◦Provide a path to citizenship for undocumented persons in the country. ◦Preserve family unity as a cornerstone of our national immigration system. ◦Provide legal paths for low-skilled immigrant workers to come and work in the United States. ◦Restore due process protections to immigration enforcement policies. ◦Address the root causes of migration caused by persecution and economic disparity.
