Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act.
— Proverbs 3:27 NIV
Just like you, we have been following the news of children held in horrifying conditions at the border and are grieved for the young children and parents involved. We have been talking to many trusted partners who are on the front lines to get accurate information as well as to learn of ways a church can help.
One crucial way to help today is by contacting your members of Congress.
Congress has the power to act, but Members of Congress are much more likely to do so if they are convinced that their constituents see a solution for vulnerable immigrant children and families as a priority.
It’s simple. Ask your member of Congress today to:
Please stand up for immigrant children, ensuring that those being brought to the border recently are neither detained nor separated from their parents.
Please stand up for immigrant children, ensuring that all children held in governmental custody are in safe, sanitary conditions and reunited to families as quickly as possible. Please respect our asylum laws to ensure that no one fleeing persecution is returned to danger or forced to wait months in Mexico in unsafe conditions without access to legal counsel. And please ensure that families are kept together whenever possible, both along the border and within the U.S.
