Calls to Action

Remind Congress Families Belong Together
Support Dreamers

Tell Congress that Families Belong Together and You Care About the 545 Children Whose Parents Cannot be Found

We believe society is stronger when families are together (see our 15 Declarations on Immigration).
 
Mormon Women for Ethical Government first made this statement in 2018 when reports surfaced that the Department of Homeland Security was routinely separating children and parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. At that time, many expressed concern that there were no systemic plans in place to track children and parents for ultimate reunification. This concern was justified, as it is now clear that under the Trump administration, 545 children have been completely and perhaps irreparably disconnected from their families.
 
We affirm our deep belief that a society that harms families for an express political purpose has lost its way. 
 
We encourage all citizens to contact your members of Congress. Remind them that you are aware this administration’s policy was executed for the purposes of fear and determent. Express your concern that these practices have deeply wounded these children and families. Remind them that the principled vote you cast this month is connected to a desire for just and humane immigration policies. We believe society is stronger when families are together. Join us and speak out in defense of families.

Ask Your Senators to Support Dreamers and Pass HR6

The Supreme Court recently struck down President Trump’s executive order rescinding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). While this was a widely celebrated decision, it is only a temporary one. The current administration has indicated that they will continue to try to end DACA. Until legislation is passed, Dreamers and concerned citizens cannot rest peacefully. The American Dream and Promise Act (HR6) passed in the House of Representatives last year but has yet to pass in the Senate. We need to pressure our senators to take action.
