AMOS Leaders Challenge Iowa Congressman on Immigration & Unaccompanied Minors
At a town hall meeting held in Ames, Iowa, Congressman Steve King was confronted by AMOS leaders unhappy with his recent votes on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and treatment of unaccompanied minors from Central America.
Shari Reilly appealed to the Catholic faith shared with King when she asked him to take a more “humanitarian approach” to the unaccompanied children arriving from Mexico and Central America. On behalf of AMOS she invited the Congressman to a public assembly to be held in September at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church.
