UUSJ’s Immigration Task Group takes positions on immigration-related bills

UUSJ signed onto a letter asking Senators to co-sponsor the Agricultural Worker Program Act of 2017, at the invitation of Farmworker Justice. The bill provides a one-time opportunity for experienced agricultural workers to apply for legal status. The bill is framed as a bridge until comprehensive reform can be enacted, and will provided needed legal status for farmworkers to help stabilize the agricultural economy and protect farmworker families. Also, UUSJ’s Immigration Task Group is taking a position opposing three immigration-related bills that support punitive enforcement, mass detention and deportation.
