COP 23Engage

October 27, 2017—Austin, TX—A number of prominent religious organizations and clergy members in Texas, representing multiple faith traditions, filed an amicus brief in the U.S. 5th Circuit on October 20, asking that it uphold the injunction against anti-immigrant SB 4, which San Antonio U.S. Judge Orlando García granted at the end of August.


More than 120 Texans of faith gathered Tuesday at Bering Memorial United Methodist Church in Houston to stand in solidarity with undocumented immigrants at a Prayer Vigil led by leaders of Christian, Jewish and Muslim faith traditions. Sponsored by Texas Impact, the Vigil highlighted the harm created by Texas’s recent anti-immigration Senate Bill 4 and DACA decisions.

The National Immigration Forum held its annual conference, “Leading the Way: A New Approach to American Immigration,” on Thursday October 5th. The conference is part of an initiative called Bibles, Badges, and Business, a coalition of faith leaders, law enforcement, and business leaders who seek bipartisan immigration reform. Imaad Khan traveled to D.C. to represent Texas Impact at the conference, as well as on several congressional visits on Wednesday. Speakers included Senator Thom Tillis, former Mexican ambassador to the U.S.

Since the beginning of the Trump presidency, certain vulnerable communities have been on high alert as to their presence and security in this country. Since January, travel bans, refugee ceilings, anti-sanctuary cities laws, and the repeal of basic protections, like DACA, for undocumented immigrants have increased instability in these communities. 

As Texas' "anti-sanctuary cities" legislation takes effect, interfaith communities are speaking out and studying up.
