While many of us take time off during the summer, the government is still hard at work. Just last week, there was significant action taken regarding immigration:
- Two anti-immigrant bills that deal with interior enforcement passed through the House, one of which would make immigrants more vulnerable and damage trust between immigrants and law enforcement.
- 10 state attorney generals and one governor threatened to take legal action against the Trump administration if it does not end the DACA program.
- The Supreme Court decided it would hear arguments over President Trump’s travel ban for refugees and people from six Muslim-majority countries, and that in the meantime parts of the executive order could proceed, meaning many vulnerable refugees who have been cleared to enter the U.S. must wait even longer.
As people who long for a more just immigration system, it’s important that we stay engaged with advocacy this summer! Check out the following opportunities to proclaim that immigrants are a blessing, not a burden!
