Houston Interfaith Statement on Humane Immigration Reform

We call on Congress to enact humane and equitable immigration reform and commit to legislation that:

  • Upholds family unity as a priority of all immigration policies
  • Creates a process for undocumented immigrants to earn their legal status and eventual citizenship
  • Protects workers and provides efficient channels of entry for new migrant workers
  • Facilitates immigrant integration
  • Restores due process protections and reform detention policies
  • Aligns the enforcement of immigration laws with humanitarian values
  • Recognizes Immigration as a Matter of Human Rights
