2019 Organizational Sign-Ons
The IFCLA is a signatory to a number of petitions and letters that support for legislation and further policy objectives that align with our own and organizations with like-minded purposes. Here is a list of the organizational sign-ons we have joined so far this year:
Open Letter to the President of the United Mexican States, Mr. Andrés Manuel López Obrador from the Central American Exodus (Signed 1/8): Calls for the President of Mexico and his government to address the violation of migrants’ rights in its borders and commit to providing the food, security, health, and sanitation services necessary for migrants’ survival and dignity while working towards reforming the immigration system.
Support Letter for Family-Based Immigration from Value Our Families (Signed 3/6): Advocates for promoting family immigration and reversing recent measures and legislation that inhibit citizens and immigrants from being with their families in the U.S. Supports the Diversity Visa (DV) program and the Reuniting Families Act (RFA).
Interfaith Letter on No Ban Act from Faith Organizations (Signed 4/3): Supports the NO BAN Act or National Origin-Based Anti-discrimination for Nonimmigrants Act which strengthens the protections of the 1980 Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and prohibits discrimination based on religion or place of origin.
Interfaith Letter Supporting GRACE ACT from Faith Organizations (Signed 5/8): Sponsors the Guaranteed Refugee Ceiling Enhancement Act (GRACE Act), which would restore the annual refugee admissions goal to the historical average of 95,000 and reverse the Trump administration’s 75% cut in admissions to only 30,000.
No Supplemental Funding for CBP and ICE (Signed 5/8): Calls for Congress to reject proposals to increase funding for CBP and ICE that will aid their ability to detain migrants and ignores these agencies’ histories of abuse.
