Please, in the name of every refugee or asylum seeker you've ever known (including my great grandparents as well as Waheed, Palden, and Lobsang) please voice your opinions about these draconian changes being proposed that will restrict people even from asking for asylum or refuge in the United States. There's a template there-- as well as the wise words of Rev. Craig Mousin, ( a true mensch!). It's easy enough to do. Most of us wouldn't even be here if such regulations had been in place. Please take five minutes of your time!!!
Please help us send comments to the Department of Justice by July 15th about the new proposed rules severely restricting asylum in the United States: https://bit.ly/2C4SHEc
Core to our Vincentian mission is to advocate for the marginalized and oppressed. Rev. Craig B. Mousin, former Executive Director of the Midwest Immigrant Rights Center and Adjunct faculty member at DePaul University's College of Law explains the serverity of legislation being pushed forward and urges us to act.
Follow the link above to our "Way of Wisdom" blog to listen to the podcast explaining the situation which includes templates to help you send a comment to the DOJ.
