Rabbis Organizing Rabbis (ROR) is a project of the Reform Movement’s social justice initiatives: the Justice and Peace Committee of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the Religious Action Center, and Just Congregations. Through the Rabbis Organizing Rabbis Campaign, we come together as a unified Reform Movement with justice at our core. We seek to build a powerful network of Reform Jews praying with our feet through effective grassroots and legislative action on vital justice issues of our time.
Saving Immigrant Families
Joining leading immigration reform organizations, Rabbis Organizing Rabbis are working to halt the nearly 1,100 deportations that occur daily, which is more than at any point in U.S. history.
Over the past year, as ROR has worked on immigration reform, we have learned that thousands of immigrants are torn from their families every day through deportation. Mothers, fathers, and grandparents without documents are sent back to countries ravaged by drug cartels and poverty, far away from the families that depend on them. Deportation is an important part of border enforcement, but we have learned that too many innocent people are caught in the system. The good news is that US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) legally has the right to use discretion about whom to deport. And, ROR has seen that ICE actually will exercise that discretion – if they hear from enough people.
Your calls to Immigration and Customs Enforcement could help save Luis from deportation.
After you've called, tell us - we want ICE to know that Reform rabbis are standing up for Luis, so we need to keep our own records of who has called!
