Dominican Sisters of Houston Convocation
Immigration Statement

The Dominican Sisters of Houston call on Congress to pass comprehensive immigration legislation. Our present immigration system is broken, denies basic human rights to immigrants, and ignores the oppressive living conditions that force people to migrate.

We support just and compassionate immigration reform that includes: a process for undocumented persons to achieve permanent residency and a path to citizenship; viable legal avenues for immigration; family-based immigration to assure the unity of families; restoration of due process protections for immigrants; labor protections for undocumented workers; and policies to address the root causes of migration.

Further, we support the undocumented immigrant community, especially now when families are unjustifiably torn apart, through advocacy on behalf of detainees and their family members.
