I just got an email from the White House with a thank you I want to share – because it is really intended for the amazing LIRS network of partners, churches, refugee and migrant leaders:
In addition, and as a part of the President’s executive actions, we wanted to be sure that you specifically saw the Presidential Memorandum (PM) on Creating Welcoming Communities and Fully Integrating Immigrants and Refugees. We’ve attached the PM to this email. Developing this PM would not have been possible without your incredible and invaluable dialogue from this summer’s first ever White House Convening on Immigrant and Refugee Integration. This is just one step in the right direction and we greatly look forward to working with all of you to as we continue to look at ways to continue this incredible work.
The full Presidential Memorandum can be found here. Thank you for your leadership, your compassion, your hunger for justice, and your tireless advocacy!
