The Network calls for immigration reform without delay

February 10, 2021: The NW Ohio Immigrant Rights Network has sent a letter to President Joe Biden, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer urging them to fulfill their promise of addressing the dire situation of immigrants and asylees.

Beatriz Maya, Director of La Conexión and a founding member of the Network, says that “Immigration policies have to be humane and realistic. Our country suffers from an aging population. This can be easily reversed by opening up to newcomers. For decades now, we have criminalized 12 million young workers by subjecting them to an undocumented status, blocking all access for them to obtain documentation in the US. This needs to stop!” 

Deacon Jennifer Vásquez, a faith-based assistant to the NW Ohio Immigrant Rights Network, adds that “People of all faiths understand that welcoming sojourners and appreciating their gifts, and not perpetuating racism, fear, or animosity towards others, is what brings people together for the common good, lifting our country to its brightest future.”

 

Zeltzin Contreras, youth organizer for La Conexión, highlights how “many of the DACA Dreamers have been on the forefront of the struggle against COVID - 19, even as health personnel, risking their lives to protect the community.” The Network estimates that 5 million essential workers are considered undocumented.
