Dear . . . ,
We are writing to express our deep concern for the treatment of the immigrants and asylum seekers being held in detention centers at our southern border and in other locations including our own area. The conditions these children and adults are being held in are deplorable. We are especially concerned for the children and babies who have been taken from their parents and other family members. The reports from Congressional representatives, lawyers, pediatricians, and from Border Control agents themselves paint a grim picture of their conditions. Our faith asks us to treat others with kindness, compassion, and dignity. We are called upon to love the stranger. We insist that you, as our representative, live up to the values that so many of us hold as our moral obligations by properly funding and humanely treating the people under our care.
