Sign a letter to your Congressman for a Jewish day of action to oppose the SAFE Act.
The Jewish community has serious concerns about the “Strengthen and Fortify Enforcement” (SAFE) Act, H.R. 2278, which was approved by the House Judiciary Committee in June 2013.
Among other things, this bill would:
• Worsen laws targeting terrorism that instead negatively impact refugees and asylees;
• Expand the immigration detention system that currently detains torture survivors, asylum seekers, and others seeking protection in the U.S. from persecution in their home countries;
• Unwisely delegate enforcement of national immigration laws to state and local law enforcement agencies.
Join us on Thursday, October 17th to urge the House to oppose the SAFE Act!
