Pesach’ campaign resists fed’s reliance on workplace raids
A coalition of Jewish community leaders is urging the reform of immigration policy before Passover begins on April 8.
Called “Progress by Pesach,” the campaign began with a Jan. 29 conference call to members of the Jewish media chaired by the president of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Gideon Aronoff of South Orange.
Participants urged President Barack Obama and Congress to curtail the use of raids as a primary tool of immigration enforcement.
They set a goal of collecting 10,000 signatures by April 8 on a petition encouraging “humanitarian immigration reform.”
“We are calling upon President Obama and Congress to make immigration reform a top priority,” Aronoff said.“For too long, our government has relied primarily on enforcement, but immigration raids only cause suffering for immigrants and communities and do nothing to solve the underlying problem of immigration.”
