Action of Immigration Reform
The Jewish Community's concern about immigration policy is grounded in Scripture and historical experience. The Jewish people came together as a community in Egypt when we were slaves. Because of that experience the Torah reminds us never to forget the stranger and the oppressed. From that experience we learned that being sensitive to the needs of strangers is a paramount ethical principle.
We want to make sure that the United States remain a society open to legal immigrants and strangers, especially to those fleeing. Moreover, we feel strongly that legal immigrants should not be discriminated against in receiving public benefits.
