Share the Journey Funding and Dreamer Action Alert

As your constituent, a Justice for Immigrants coalition member, and supporter of the Share the Journey global migration campaign led by Pope Francis, I'd like to express my concern for families forced to migrate. As you finalize Fiscal Year 2018 appropriations, please provide robust support for migrants, refugees, internally displaced persons and asylum seekers overseas, as well as protection for Dreamers, young people who know the U.S. as their only home. I urge you to fund poverty-reducing international assistance in the international affairs budget at no less than Fiscal Year 2017 enacted levels and to provide a path to citizenship for DREAMers here in the United States.
My faith guides me to believe in the dignity of all persons and the need to protect the most vulnerable, especially refugees and migrants. As we approach the season of Advent, I think about the Holy Family and how they were migrants themselves, looking for shelter and safety.

Many families affected by migration here in the United States need your support and action. Based on my faith, I believe in protecting the dignity of every human being, particularly that of children. I urge you to support DACA youth, many of whom have been in the United States their entire lives. The Catholic Bishops have long supported these immigrant youths and their families who are contributors to our economy, academic standouts in our universities and leaders in our parishes. They exemplify the extraordinary contributions that immigrants provide to our nation. These youths should not be forced to live in constant fear that they will be deported and separated from their families. It is both our moral duty and in our nation's best interest to protect them and help them reach their God-given potential.

Today, more than 65 million people are forcibly displaced around the world, and more than 22 million are refugees. These are historically high levels. The 600,000 Rohingya fleeing to Bangladesh are the latest mass movement of refugees needing help. The United States is the cornerstone of the international humanitarian system. We must maintain our leadership and protect life-saving U.S. humanitarian assistance. Attending to inequality and the lack of access to basic needs, and other root causes, can help prevent future conflict and forced displacement, while promoting human dignity and building thriving and stable communities. 

I lift my voice in support of refugees and migrants, and I urge you to protect poverty-reducing international assistance and include passage of the Dream Act (H.R. 3440/S. 1615) in the final Fiscal Year 2018 appropriations bill. 
Thank you for your time, consideration and leadership.
