Dear Disciples,

We have much to look forward to in this new year. In 2015 we will begin applying for deferred action through the President's Executive Actions while at the same time defending these programs against attacks. We will try to protect individuals seeking refuge from countries facing disasters, both natural and human-made. We will use the legal system to reunite families. We will serve our neighbors. Blessings on all that you do for immigrant justice in this new year.
