Background: Pastor Max Villatoro's wife, Gloria Villatoro, his lawyer, David Leopold, and Tammy Alexander from the MCC U.S. Washington Office will be speaking on House and Senate briefing panels on March 21, 2016, one day after the one-year anniversary of Pastor Max's deportation. They will discuss Pastor Max's case and broader issues of U.S. immigration policy separating families and deporting individuals who pose no threat to public safety. By inviting your members of Congress to attend the briefings (or to send a staff member), you will help them to become educated on these issues.
Faith reflection: "What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" (Micah 6:8)
Action: Send this letter to invite your members of Congress to attend one of two briefings about Pastor Max Villatoro and broader immigration issues.
