“Build bridges, not walls” is the message behind a legislative action alert from the Ignatian Solidarity Network and the Jesuit Conference Office of Justice and Ecology. In reply to President Trump’s recent declaration of a national emergency, these organizations and others, including the KBI, understand that the situation at the U.S.–Mexico border is a humanitarian crisis, not an occasion for further militarization and wall-building. The administration’s approach does not make the U.S. safer; rather it endangers the lives of the most vulnerable.
Please join us in contacting your senators to ask them to halt this needless and immoral response, and to advocate for a thoughtful, comprehensive, and humanitarian immigration policy. (The U.S. House has already approved a resolution to stop the National Emergency Declaration.) Here are letters to send and share. Thank you!
