OH Faith Leaders Call on Rep. Steve Stivers to Stop Immoral Deportations, Honor Immigrant Moms

 

COLUMBUS, Ohio — On Thursday, May 10, at 1 p.m., faith leaders and community members will deliver a Mother’s Day card and a moral declaration signed by local mothers, faith leaders and community members in support of honoring immigrant mothers.

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 60 Ohioans 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.

Thursday, May 10, at 1 p.m.
