NETWORK's Nuns on the Bus are back at home now for the moment, having finished our bus trip for immigration reform on June 18 – BUT OUR JOURNEY FOR JUSTICE CONTINUES!
We believe in the message we saw during our trip: Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world.
There is still much to be done, and we hope you will continue to journey with us as we advocate for justice for immigrants and all people who struggle at the margins.
During this most recent bus trip, we traveled across the United States — 6,500 miles through 15 states — 53 events in 40 cities — and we were deeply touched by the outpouring of support for comprehensive immigration reform everywhere we went. We ask everyone to continue to press Congress to pass legislation that incorporates the values listed below.
We call for commonsense immigration reform that:
Ensures family unity
Protects the rights of immigrant workers
Acknowledges that our borders are already secure, with only minor changes needed
Speeds up processing of already-approved immigrants
Enhances the present diversity visa program
Provides a clear and direct pathway to citizenship for the 11 million people who are undocumented in the U.S.
Our message is clear: We need commonsense immigration policies that reflect our values, not our fears. Congress must act now!
