N.C. Faith Leaders Call on Rep. Mark Walker to Stop Immoral Deportations, Honor Immigrant Moms

GREENSBORO, NC — On Friday, May 11, at 11 a.m., faith and community leaders will deliver a giant Mother’s Day card to Rep. Mark Walker, calling on him and other lawmakers to uphold immigration policies that protect and unite immigrant families.​

Faith leaders want lawmakers to stop the shameful detention and deportation of pregnant moms; to defund immigration enforcement efforts that separate moms from their children in the interior U.S. and at the border, and to provide Dreamers and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders a path to citizenship; and to reject further limits to family-based sponsorship.​

The card is followed by a moral declaration signed by over 35 North Carolinians calling on Members of Congress to honor all moms this Mother’s Day by upholding immigration policies that protect and unite immigrant families. To see the list of signers, click here.
