Thank Rep. John Conyers For Affirming Immigrant Humanity

The 113th Congress just held it's first hearing on immigration and Rep. John Conyers began by affirming the humanity of our communities. He told his fellow members of Congress: "I hope no one uses the term 'illegal immigrants' here today...The people in this country are not illegal. They are out of status." It was an important moment in a hearing that was otherwise filled with hours of misinformation and anti-migrant feelings.  

Rep. John Conyers is the ranking Democrat in the main House committee discussing immigration reform this year. We need to have his back and make clear we want more of what Rep. Conyers is saying coming out of the House. Please sign here to thank him.

The Message

To Rep. John Conyers: 

We appreciate you standing up for the humanity of our communities by saying, "I hope no one uses the term 'illegal immigrants' here today...The people in this country are not illegal. They are out of status." We hope to see and hear more of that as your committee works to pass immigration reform this year.
