ADVOCACY OPPORTUNITIES

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.

Ask Congress to Support a Solution for Dreamers

Ten years ago, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced the creation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy, allowing certain undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children the opportunity to request a temporary but renewable protection from deportation and authorization to work lawfully in the U.S. But DACA was originally envisioned as a temporary measure, and ten years after it was announced, it’s clear that it is past time for a permanent solution for Dreamers – one that only Congress can provide. Sign our letter and call your senators to urge Congress to pass a permanent solution for DACA recipients and other Dreamers.

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.

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.
