WI religious groups call for immigration reform

WNPJ member groups the Wisconsin Council of Churches and Voces de la Frontera, along with WISDOM, a congregation-based social justice network, expressed strong support for comprehensive immigration reform.  "Throughout our state’s history, Wisconsin’s faith communities have been blessed and enriched by immigrants, whether they arrived from Europe before statehood or more recently from Latin America, Southeast Asia, or elsewhere," stated the groups.

Immigration reform should "ensure just and compassionate treatment of all immigrants while providing for our country’s security and economic well-being," by keeping families together, offering a path to citizenship, protecting immigrants from exploitation, and avoiding relying on fences and weapons for border security.
