Senator Klobuchar: People of Faith Demand A Roadmap to Citizenship

    1. Sponsored by

      ISAIAH & Prophetic Voices

Immigrants are our neighbors, friends, and the people we worship with in our faith communities. Eleven million people work and live in the United States in the shadows of our communities because of their status as undocumented immigrants. Two-thirds of them have been in this country for more than a decade.

As Congress considers immigration legislation, come together with people of faith in Minnesota to demand that this reform focus on citizenship for these 11 million aspiring Americans.

Join ISAIAH and sign the petition right now to call on Senator Klobuchar to focus on citizenship for the aspiring Americans in our neighborhoods and faith communities.

      We are a land that was formed rightly (if we had conjoined with the Native Americans whose country "we invaded." Now we who consider this our kind of "private nation" are now up in arms against the very premise upon the Statue of Liberty who welcomes the dispossessed. Our nation who prides itself in the banners of freedom and justice do just the opposite to those who are literally our neighbors and co-workers. Nothing could be further from our nation's ethic. Are we no longer a nation who prizes the virtues of being "good Samaritans?" It is sad if we are and a sad statement to our people and the global community. Senator Klobuchar please listen to your heart more than platforms of political rhetoric. Your conscience is more important than your "gain".Don't fail it.

      These people want to be legal. The present system is what keeps them illegal.

      This is important to me because of my faith and values. If undocumented immigrants are welcome to do the hard physical jobs here in the United States, pay taxes and Social Security then they deserve to be treated as fellow human beings with the same needs and hopes as we citizens.

      They live and work here; they pay taxes, many are here through their parents choices; our population is declining...I just can't think of any reason why they shouldn't become citizens.
