CFIR Thanks Governor Ritter

CFIR Thanks You

“Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the keys to living your life with integrity.”

Dear Governor Ritter:

We at Coloradans For Immigrant Rights (CFIR) recently heard about your support of the Colorado Interfaith Pledge on Immigration on September 25th, 2008. We were encouraged and pleased to see you take a stand for proactive and respectful dialogue about immigration policy. We appreciate you naming comprehensive, just and human immigration reform as a priority and a necessity for the next president’s administration and for our communities.

Our group, which represents over 800 individuals across the State, works to support the human rights of immigrant communities and to create a vision of a world where dignity and justice are afforded to everyone. Your actions contribute to such a world. Thank you.

We will be following up with a letter outlining our perspective on the currently policy debate around immigration.

If you would like more information about CFIR or if there is anything we can do to be supportive of your continued efforts, please contact me at 303-623-3464.
