The Senate Judiciary Committee is currently considering amendments to S. 744. As early as Monday, the committee is expected to focus on several amendments that could have long-term helpful or harmful consequences for refugees, asylees, stateless individuals, unaccompanied children, and all migrants subject to detention.
“As a person of faith, I urge the senator to OPPOSE the following amendments that would prevent vulnerable migrants such as refugees and children from seeking safety and protection, and increase the use of immigration detention: Grassley 25, 26, 27, 40, 41, 47, 51, 52, and 53, Graham 1 and Sessions 12.
Also, I urge the senator to SUPPORT these amendments which would improve the lives of vulnerable migrants and better protect families harmed by immigration detention: Hirono 22, Blumenthal 2, Franken 7, and Coons 6 and 8.”
