ACT OF SOLIDARITY

CONGRESS--SUPPORT THE BRIDGE ACT

SISTERS ONLINE anticipates there will be more coming from President Trump with regard to immigration, eg: the elimination of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), a program that enables immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to be educated and then attain a work visa if they wish to do so. As of right now, Trump has not acted on DACA, but we know that this program certainly is not safe under a Trump administration.

We believe it's time to act before President Trump ends the program. Lets be proactive on this. That's where the BRIDGE Act comes in! The BRIDGE Act would provide similar provisional protection to DACA recipients, allowing immigrants brought as children to get work permits and receive an education while delaying their deportations. The BRIDGE Act is a temporary legislative solution that would remove the immediate threat of removing DACA protections.

On February 20, legislators will be back in their home districts. Please contact them and urge them to support the BRIDGE Act.

Thanks so much for getting involved. There are so many immigrants in our country who are now living in fear. Please help them by acting and praying for them.

 

PAUL RYAN--NO TO MUSLIM BAN

SISTERS ONLINE has heard that Paul Ryan's phone is ringing off the hook. As a Catholic, he should stand against the ban of refugees from Muslim-majority countries. He's the nation's most powerful Catholic politician. We must continue to ask him to stop the ban.

How likely is this? Probably not very likely at all. But he has to hear from Catholics that we're not happy with him on this. Please take a minute to contact him.

Here is the information you need:

Speaker Paul Ryan
