The Catholic Bishops of the United States (USCCB) have requested Catholics call their Congressional representatives on Monday in support of Dreamers:

“We are also announcing a National Catholic Call-In Day to Protect Dreamers. This coming weekend, we will be asking the faithful across the nation to call their Members of Congress next MondayFebruary 26, to protect Dreamers from deportation, to provide them a path to citizenship, and to avoid any damage to existing protections for families and unaccompanied minors in the process.

“Our faith compels us to stand with the vulnerable, including our immigrant brothers and sisters. We have done so continually, but we must show our support and solidarity now in a special way. Now is the time for action.”

Helpful suggestion:

1. Please call 855-589-5698 to reach the Capitol switchboard and press 1 to connect to your Senator (press 2 for Representative). Once you are connected to the Senator’s offices, please ask the person on the phone to deliver this simple message to your legislator:

“I urge you to support a bipartisan, common-sense, and humane solution for Dreamers:

Protect Dreamers from deportation and provide them with a path to citizenship.

Reject proposals that undermine family immigration or protections for unaccompanied children.

As a Catholic, I know that families are not ‘chains,’ but a blessing to be protected.

Act now to protect Dreamers, our immigrant brothers and sisters.”
