Each of us has been entrusted by God with influence. We invite you to join leaders of the Evangelical Immigration Table in using your power to act for immigration policy issues, guided by biblical values.

Advocate for Afghans

Since August, many Afghans fleeing from the Taliban, have come to the United Status under humanitarian parole. Recently, the Biden administration announced Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Afghans already in the U.S., but this is not enough. It is necessary for Congress to act to provide a way for these vulnerable folks to apply for permanent status. If Congress fails to act, these Afghans will find themselves in an unstable, perpetual “temporary” status, alongside DACA and other TPS recipients. Ask your Members of Congress to provide a path to permanent status for all of these groups. 

Although the US has completed its withdrawal and mass evacuation from Afghanistan, thousands of Afghans uniquely vulnerable to persecution from the Taliban – because of their service to the US military, their work with US NGOs, their race or their religion – remain unable to get to the US. Many of these vulnerable people remain stuck in Afghanistan or neighboring countries. Join evangelical leaders in urging President Biden to not leave them behind and to approve humanitarian parole requests for those that qualify.

Ask your Senator to Support a Solution for Dreamers

Polls show that the overwhelming majority of evangelical Christians—along with most Americans overall, including majorities of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents—want Congress to permanently resolve the situations of “Dreamers,” young immigrants brought as children to the U.S. The only way for these young people to ultimately have stability is for Congress to pass a permanent legislative solution. The House recently passed such a bill, but it faces an uncertain future in the Senate. Ask your Senators today to stand up for Dreamers, passing legislation that would allow immigrants brought to the U.S. as children the opportunity to apply for U.S. citizenship.

Urge Congress to Pass Restitution-based Immigration Reform

We believe that a solution to the problem of illegal immigration is long overdue. Deporting all immigrants here in the country illegally is neither feasible nor morally just. Immigrant families are integral parts of our communities, and children have been born and raised here who are US citizens. Many immigrant families have been here for decades, and many are members of local churches. We must develop a solution that fits the problem we have, solves it by upholding the rule of law, creates a process of restitution, and gives the possibility of integration so immigrants can fully participate in American life.
