The Franciscan Action Network (FAN) has shared a simple action that will help children in crisis at the border. The senate is considering rolling back protections provided to these children under the Trafficking Victims Protections Re-authorization Act (TVPRA). FAN is asking for people to call and speak to their senators and ask them to vote no on rolling back protections.
Senator Ron Johnson has said he will vote in favor of rolling back protections
Senator Tammy Baldwin is undecided.
If you wish to call – FAN is asking for folks to tell senator staffers that as a constituent you urge your representative to vote NO on rolling back protections under TVPRA. If your senators are not in Wisconsin, feel free to ask their staffers how they are planning to vote: you want to hear them say the senator will vote NO on rolling back protections.

We will not solve our immigration crisis by criminalizing children and their families. St.Francis’ life call us to stand with these families in crisis and accompany them – not deport and detain them.
