Faith Leaders Voice Opposition to Congressional E-Verify Bill

June 21st, 2011

Faith based community organizations, business leaders and human rights groups are urging Congress to block the E-Verify bill introduced by Rep. Lamar Smith in the House of Representatives. They argue that the system has high error rates, and will hurt immigrant families and negatively affect the U.S. economy. The Missionary Oblates JPIC office, in consonance with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Justice for Immigrants Campaign, opposes E-Verify in the absence of a broader immigration reform package that respects human dignity and family unity.
