DECATUR, Ga. — On Thursday, May 10, at 10 a.m., faith leaders and leaders will deliver a giant Mother’s Day card calling on Rep. Karen Handel and other lawmakers to uphold immigration policies that protect and unite immigrant families.

Following the vigil, religious leaders will deliver card signed by Georgians to the office of Representative Handel.
