As Congress prepares another COVID-19 relief bill, it is important that we raise our voices again to ensure that immigrant families are able to receive its benefits regardless of their immigration status.
With our partners at the Justice for Immigrants Campaign at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, we invite you to take action: Urge Congress to ensure immigrants are included in the upcoming relief package.
Many undocumented immigrants continue to serve as essential workers in settings that place them at high risk for COVID-19 infection. We can honor their dignity as children of God and their importance in our communities by ensuring that they receive the necessary benefits to help them get through this time of crisis.
