The MCC Washington Office website provides information about the office, action alerts, upcoming events, and resources on domestic and international issues. Recent highlights include:
Immigration Reform Immigration and border policies should focus on community accountability, humane enforcement, and system-wide approaches. But the U.S. government has made it difficult for many immigrant and asylum-seeker families to successfully navigate the U.S. legal system. The MCC Washington Office creates regular legislative updates to help you stay informed on current legislative actions on immigration reform. A fact sheet on border enforcement is also available at washington.mcc.org/issues/immigration.
