From Church World Service:
NEW YORK CITY, July 28, 2010--Church World Service welcomed U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton's temporary injunction against the implementation of parts of Arizona's controversial new immigration law SB 1070, scheduled to take effect Thursday (July 29), and reiterated its call for a federal fix of America's broken immigration system.
"While temporary and partial, Judge Bolton's injunction feels like a small victory," said Joe Roberson, CWS Associate for Operations. "Most importantly, it's an opportunity to re-emphasize that only fair, humane, comprehensive federal immigration reform will fix America's broken immigration system. For its part, CWS will continue to press the U.S. Congress for immigration reform that prioritizes family unity, protects the rights of all workers, reforms inhumane detention and deportation processes, makes the visa system efficient, and provides a pathway to earned legal status for undocumented immigrants now in the country."Founded in 1946, Church World Service is a cooperative ministry of 36 Christian denominations and communions.
