National Call-In Day for Immigration Reform
Wednesday, November 13
Call Today – Toll-free 1-855-589-5698
On the Feast Day of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, patron of immigrants, the Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops joins Justice for Immigrants to urge Catholics and supporters of immigration reform to call their U.S. Representative in Congress and leave a simple message.
Callers dialing into the toll-free number 1-855-589-5698 will hear a short recording instructing them to give the following message to their member of Congress:
“Support a path to citizenship and oppose the SAFE Act.”
After the recording, callers will then be prompted to enter their zip code on their telephone keypad and will be connected directly to their Representative’s Washington, DC office.
H.R. 2278, the Strengthen and Fortify Enforcement (SAFE) Act was approved by the U.S. House of Representatives’ Judiciary Committee on June 18, 2013. This bill focuses on immigration enforcement that will increase detentions and deportations and encourage racial profiling further jeopardizing vulnerable populations. Additionally, the SAFE Act would criminalize humanitarian acts of assistance to undocumented persons.
Please take a brief moment in your day to take action on behalf of our nation’s immigrants who seek a better life for themselves and their families. “Congress has the best opportunity in almost 30 years to pass immigration reform. This is a historic moment in our country. As Americans, we cannot let this moment pass.” (A Statement by the Bishops of Florida in Support of Immigration Reform, June 5, 2013)
