Quaker group: Fair path to citizenship must stand on more humane principles
PHILADELPHIA (April 16, 2013) - The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) finds the summary of the immigration bill released by eight U.S. Senators today a far cry from the just and humane reforms that immigrant communities, faith, labor and advocacy groups have been calling for. Instead it reproduces, and even doubles down on, many of the current failed policies.
