Tell the Obama Administration: Stop the Raids on Central American Refugees | Groundswell

As people of faith and moral conscience, we are outraged by the Obama administration’s violation of human rights by using raids as a scare tactic against the immigrant community and deporting thousands of Central American refugees who entered the United States seeking asylum. We urge President Obama and his administration to respond to this crisis with moral courage: To stop the raids, provide legal counsel to immigrants and asylum seekers, close family detention centers where mothers and children are inhumanely held before deportation, and increase humanitarian aid to address the root causes of migration from Central America. In the tradition of Sanctuary, we pledge to resist these violations of human rights by offering up our voices, actions, and bodies to protect and stand with our immigrant and refugee brothers and sisters.
