OSJ Action Alert: June 7, 2018

Raise your voice for justice!

Separating children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border is now official policy. On May 7, the Trump administration announced a new “zero tolerance” policy: all adults caught entering the U.S. illegally are to be criminally prosecuted — even those who are legally seeking asylum -- and their children will be forcibly taken from them.

As people who have been enfolded into God’s family, we understand the sacredness of family unity. In this moment, Christians have an important message for Congress: families are meant to be together-- not separated. Together, we can ensure Congress hears that the faith community stands with families and those fleeing persecution.
