Religious leaders say U.S. immigration law must change

A group of religious leaders has called upon the government to act, noting that reform is needed in Georgia and throughout the nation. The topic of their pleas is U.S. immigration law. Especially, with regard to Koreans and other Asians, the group says many important issues have gone unspoken for too long.

In May 2016, protests were held in another state against planned deportations of various immigrants seeking asylum. Reportedly, many religious groups have come out as advocates for their cause, as well as many other undocumented immigrants facing challenges due to what they say is a lack of badly needed immigration reform. Requests have been made that politicians address the issue within the first 100 days of the 2017 congressional session. 

One minister recently stated that approximately one out of every six Koreans in the nation lacks proper documentation for residency. The reverend said it is a serious problem that is growing among the Asian population in the United States. Many people are said to be suffering due to issues involving their statuses.

Some of the religious leaders said all immigrants have the right to live without fear and provide for their families as best as possible in the United States, regardless of their immigration statuses. The religious communities have reportedly joined efforts to speak on behalf of their distressed fellow men because they believe that is the proper thing to do. Whether politicians will listen to the pleas of these community leaders and take action to reform U.S. immigration law remains to be seen. Any Georgia immigrant facing challenges due to status may seek support by contacting an immigration and naturalization advocate.
