Remember the USCCB’s anti-FOCA postcard campaign last year? Well get ready to send out another set of postcards this year! Apparently, the incredible success of the anti-FOCA campaign (Senate aides told me they were entering the postcards in their database for 3 months) has encouraged the Bishops to launch a similar campaign in support of immigration reform.
Coinciding with National Migration Week, Bishop John Wester, the high-hats lead on immigration issues has announced the following:
- The launch of a nationwide postcard campaign under the Justice for Immigrants campaign, with 1.5 million postcards already ordered;
- The launch of two Web sites, a new Justice for Immigrants Web site with tools for parishes (www.justiceforimmigrants.org), and the National Migration Week Web site, which provides other resources (www.usccb.org/mrs/nmw/index.shtml); and
- A nationwide action alert asking for Congress to enact immigration reform as soon as possible.
