Opening Doors for New Americans since 1882
As the Senate went through its final consideration stages over the comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) bill last week - before passing the bill to move on to the house - HIAS Pennsylvania and partner agencies including the Jewish Community Relations Council worked hard to get on-the-fence Pennsylvania Senator Toomey to vote for the bill. Our hard work was recognized by the Jewish Exponent, who published two articles about the bill:
First, an article about our advocacy efforts and
Secondly, an op-ed about the need for reform.
Two great reads we highly recommend - and thanks to the Exponent for highlighting our work!
