- We know that in God’s loving Providence each human person is deserving of a life of respect and dignity.
- The immigrant experience is part of our congregational history. Our founder, Jean Martin Moye, was an immigrant for the sake of evangelization. He died as a refugee from violence and tyranny. Our first sisters in the United States came as immigrant missionaries and many served the immigrant communities. From this beginning until today we continue to have immigrant women among us.
- We have seen in our ministries the human consequences of the present immigration policy of the United States: separation of families, exploitation in the workplace, and violations of other human rights.
- We pledge to work for immigration reform that facilitates legal status and family unity, respects the rights of workers and upholds the dignity of immigrant people.
- We commit to continued education of both ourselves and others in matters that concern immigrants.
- We will pray for conversion of heart and for a just and compassionate immigration system.
