Join your voice with advocates around the nation in calling on President Obama to stop deportations and expand deferred action for all! Call 1-866-961-4293 now!

Our faith holds us to a higher calling. We understand that God’s law to love our neighbor takes precedence over any unjust human law. The laws of our broken immigration system are immoral, and President Obama not only has the legal executive authority to fix this problem right now, he has the moral obligation to do so. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program - DACA has changed the lives of more than 600,000 young people, who can now work and travel legally. The president should expand this model for all of our undocumented community members.

Act now! Call 1-866-961-4293 and follow the instructions to be connected to the White House comment line!

Here’s a sample script:

“I’m from City, State, Congregation/Community and as a person of faith, I urge President Obama to stop the pain and family separation caused by deportations. The President has the authority to allow our undocumented community members to stay here in the United States without fear of deportation. Congressional inaction cannot be an excuse to avoid doing what is right. I urge the President to renew DACA status for those who have it, to extend the application timeline, and to implement a similar process of affirmative relief for all undocumented immigrants who make contributions to their communities.”
