Call to Action on Immigration Policy Reform by Long Island Clergy
WHEN: Thursday, January 22nd, 11 am
WHERE: Temple Beth El – 45 Oak St Patchogue, NY 11772
WHAT: A press conference highlighting local religious leader’s call to strengthen protections for immigrants on Long Island and to encourage local government, to pursue immigration policies focused on solutions instead of demonization and hateful rhetoric, and to reform national immigration laws. The Long Island Council of Churches will release their Statement on Immigration Reform, which was recently approved by the body’s Board of Governors. Other clergy of various faiths, including the newly formed Interfaith Clergy Committee of Long Island, will also contribute calls for action and reform from our elected leaders to work towards immigration solutions with a focus on creating more just, integrated and welcoming communities.
We are holding this event at a time that is ripe for change: during the first week of the Obama presidency, immediately after Martin Luther King Day, in the wake of the killing of Marcelo Lucero, and while three federal agencies are investigating the incidence of hate crimes in Suffolk County.
This event is hosted by Temple Beth El of Patchogue and convened by the Long Island Council of Churches, American Jewish Committee and Long Island Wins. The Long Island Council of Churches will release the full Statement on Immigration at the press conference.

  1. The age-old pesky U.S.-Mexico border problem has taxed the resources of both countries, led to long lists of injustices, and appears to be heading only for worse troubles in the future. Guess what? The border problem can never be solved. Why? Because the border IS the problem! It’s time for a paradigm change.

    Never fear, a satisfying, comprehensive solution is within reach: the Megamerge Dissolution Solution. Simply dissolve the border along with the failed Mexican government, and megamerge the two countries under U.S. law, with mass free 2-way migration eventually equalizing the development and opportunities permanently, with justice and without racism, and without threatening U.S. sovereignty or basic principles.
