Today is the day when Harry and Yana (parents of the family featured in the documentary “Broken Asylum”) were to report to ICE. Instead, they are in sanctuary. We now have 9 people in sanctuary. 7 US Citizen kids only have their parents here in this country right now because of this effort.
Harry Pangemanan and the others in sanctuary will head up a call-a-thon that relates to the news that will be announced on Friday, June 22.
Please come to The Reformed Church of Highland Park and call politicians and friends nationwide during the following hours:
Call-A-Thon on Friday 3pm-8pm
Call-A-Thon Saturday afternoon
Call-A-Thon continues on Sunday from Noon-2pm
Every call matters, and we’ve found that it is a lot easier to call when you are surrounded by brothers and sisters who are also making calls. Our goal is to make 500 calls over the course of these three days.
Additionally, today, in Trenton, Assemblyman Peter Barnes is bringing a Resolution about the Indonesian Refugee Family Protection Act to the floor of the Assembly. We are very hopeful that the Assembly will follow the lead of the Homeland Security Committee and endorse this resolution! This resolution doesn’t have any power in and of itself, but it shows the US congress that the state of New Jersey is watching how Indonesian Christians with lives and families in America will be treated.
