Action Alert: Ask your representative to preserve diversity visas

The Diversity Visa lottery provides up to 50,000 visas annually for immigrants who do not have access to employment- or family-based visas. On Friday, the House of Representatives is expected to vote on H.R. 6429, also known as the STEM Jobs Act, to replace the Diversity Visas with visas for high-tech workers. As people of faith, we recognize the inherent dignity and worth of all people and lift up the diverse contributions they make to our communities. While scientists and engineers certainly benefit our society, so do the people who harvest our food, clean our offices, and care for our young children.

Ask your representative to preserve the Diversity Visa program.
