The government may be shut down, but we are not giving up on immigration reform. Come to the Table—Join us as we break our fast and recommit ourselves to action for comprehensive immigration reform.
The Franciscan Action Network (FAN), an organization of Franciscan sisters, friars, lay Franciscans and Franciscan-hearted people across the United States, is calling on Congress to immediately end the government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling. The federal government has now been partially shut down for more than a week. The issues around the shutdown run deeper than politics. It is not partisan. The shutdown has little to do with the Affordable Health Care Act or deficit spending. The real question is; are we truly a moral nation?
