The campaign will begin during the first week of January. Antonio Cube, manager of the Church’s Justice for Immigrants Campaign, told Catholic News Service "We want to increase Catholic grass-roots support for immigration reform, but we also want to show members of Congress a strong Catholic voice and strong Catholic numbers in support of immigration reform". The Church is working with a coalition of religious groups called "Home for the Holidays," which stresses the need for reform to keep families from being split up.
