March 23… Alert on Immigration What’s Happening? The Senate may take up the first of several human trafficking bills soon, but it could be at the expense of immigrants. Two extreme amendments, proposed by Senators Vitter and Inhofe, attempt to end birthright citizenship for children of non-citizen parents and negate vitally important protections for unaccompanied immigrant children. The amendment proposed by Senator Vitter flies in the face of the US Constitution. This legislation would end birthright citizenship, thereby creating a new generation of stateless children by making children of asylum seekers, trafficking victims, refugees, and others without immigration status unable to claim US citizenship. Senator Inhofe's amendment would roll back the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) and permit the deportation of unaccompanied children after a brief screening with a border patrol agent. Children must continue to be interviewed by child welfare specialists, not by weapons-carrying officers in uniform with no training in child welfare, sexual assault, abuse, or trauma. (Network)

Action One: Prayer Lord, Let everything I do this day and in this season of Lent come from you, be inspired by you. Amen. (onlineministries.creighton.edu)

Action Two: Calls/Letters Tell your Senators Human Trafficking Bills are not vehicles for Anti-Immigrant Amendments: http://salsa4.salsalabs.com/o/51184/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=13288

Call 1-866-940-2439 to be connected with the offices of House Judiciary Committee Members and urge him or her to oppose H.R. 1149 and H.R. 1153 and any similar legislation that would rollback TVPRA: Sample Script: As a person of faith, I urge Representative (NAME) to OPPOSE any rollbacks to the Trafficking Victims Protection Act. Children fleeing violence should not be returned to unsafe situations, but must be protected and cared for humanely. I urge the Representative to oppose any proposal that reduces protections for migrant children, creates barriers for asylum seekers, and expands the use of immigration detention for children, including H.R. 1153 The Asylum Reform and Border Protection Act, and H.R. 1149 The Protection of Children Act. I urge the Representative to instead support legislation that protects vulnerable migrants and refugees seeking protection in the U.S. The U.S. must find ways to reduce the violence these children face in their home countries and ensure that children who arrive to the U.S. have access to the legal counsel and services they need.

Oppose legislation that harms migrant kids and families: https://secure2.convio.net/lirs/site/Advocacy;jsessionid=CBCC33FF8B50C3F570C4939E875808C5.app263a?cmd=display&page=U serAction&id=161#.VPc2jy5uOSl

Call Gov. Rauner’s office (312-814-2121) and your Representative/State Senator: Sample Script: My name is___ and as a member of SBI [or Religious Community/parish] I believe that immigrant services are an essential investment. I urge you to maintain the funding for Immigrant Integration Service Line Item so that immigrants can have access to crucial programming that will make an enormous impact benefiting the entire state. Thank you.

Call Gov. Rauner’s office (312-814-2121) and your Representatives and Senators to express your disappointment in the budget cuts:

Sample Script: I was disappointed to learn that Gov. Rauner released a cuts-only budget that would do enormous harm to Illinois’ children, families, and communities. The Governor’s failure to propose any new revenues to address the current budget crisis – caused largely by the recent 25% cut to income tax rates – takes Illinois in the wrong direction. Specifically, the cuts to: Limit to Child Care Assistance, Restrict Eligibility for Early Intervention Services, Cuts to Child Protection, and Cuts to Health Care will disproportionately harm the most vulnerable children and families in our state. Please consider the most vulnerable and create a moral budget that addresses the needs of so many affected by these cuts.
