Increasingly, immigration is becoming one of the major moral issues of this day and age. The week of September 22nd-29th, Loyola University Chicago is answering the Ignatian Solidarity Network's call for people to reflect, pray, educate and advocate for humane immigration reform.
Come take a stand with us at a vigil for humane immigration reform on Wednesday Sept 25th @ 9pm at the Peace Pole on the Quad.
We stand with U.S. Catholic Bishops & U.S. Jesuit Provincials in asking for immigration policies that:
- Create an accessible pathway to citizenship for all 11 million people without documentation
- Support young people without documentation by enacting the DREAM Act
- Work to maintain family unity in all elements of the immigration system
- Protect the most vulnerable, especially refugees & asylum seekers
- Respect the rights of U.S. and immigrant workers
