Indonesian Christians Ask NJ Senator Lautenberg For Help

A group of Indonesian Christian immigrants is continuing to lobby federal lawmakers from New Jersey as they work to fight deportation.

Several Indonesian immigrants from Highland Park and the surrounding areas were joined by supporters Thursday as they met with staff at Sen. Frank Lautenberg’s Newark office. They’re asking New Jersey’s senators to introduce a companion bill to House legislation that would grant the group reprieve.

A Lautenberg spokesman says the senator has written letters on the group’s behalf to immigration authorities.

More than 70 Indonesian immigrants in New Jersey, along with groups in New York and New Hampshire, recently received deportation warning letters from federal immigration authorities. That came despite a conditional agreement that has allowed them to live and work legally in the U.S. for years.
