Many FAN members place a high priority on working for reform of the broken U.S. immigration system and addressed the issue before the Franciscan Action Network was created. Some members work directly with immigrant communities, some have a presence at detention centers, and many advocate for a reasonable, clear and achievable pathway to citizenship which prioritizes family unity. In collaboration with other organizations, especially with the Justice for Immigrants Campaign (JFI) of the USCCB and the Interfaith Immigration Coalition (IIC), FAN advocates in Washington, DC and in many states for immigration reform.
