Join with these faith leaders in fasting for immigration reform. And call your members of Congress today!
From Kelli Yoder, Mennonite World Review:
Saulo Padilla is fasting for immigration reform. And the hunger he feels is familiar.
A few years ago while living in Goshen, Ind., his daughters were threatened with deportation. For four days they waited for border patrol officers to make a decision.
“There was a hole in our gut every day,” he said. “This is the same hole in my gut that I feel now when I’m hungry.”
Padilla coordinates the immigration education national program for Mennonite Central Committee U.S. He’s joined the Fast Action for Immigration Reform, a national effort Sept. 9-Oct. 18 organized by the Interfaith Immigration Coalition, of which MCC is a member.
