Washington, DC 20515
Dear Representative Giffords,
On behalf of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service and our service and congregational partners all across this nation, please know that we are praying for you and the other victims of this past weekend’s violent attack.
As a public servant in a state profoundly affected by the broken immigration system, we are grateful for your leadership in support of immigration reform. Your public stand in favor of the DREAM Act is further evidence of your commitment to newcomers, your passion for justice, and your willingness to engage in finding fair solutions on this difficult and often divisive issue.
We wish you a full and speedy recovery, we mourn the death of Gabe Zimmerman, and we pray for all who were killed or injured and their families.
Yours in faith,
President and CEO
