Rev. Linda Jaramillo, a national officer of the United Church of Christ and a former board member of Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service, was arrested at the White House on July 31 engaging in nonviolent civil resistance as part of a gathering of religious leaders and immigrant activist urging an end to mass deportations and the establishment of comprehensive immigration reform.

Rev. Jaramillo, the executive minister of the UCC’s Justice and Witness Ministries, joined 111 others in being arrested.

“The laws of our flawed immigration system are clearly immoral,” she said at the gathering. “President Obama and Congress not only have the legal executive authority to fix this problem right now, they have the moral obligation to do so. Because, just like us, most of them are immigrants too.”
