WASHINGTON – Two Jewish organizations joined the Interfaith Alliance in calling on the US Senate to include a ban on religious profiling in its immigration reform bill.

Rabbi David Saperstein, director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, and Nancy Kaufman, CEO of the National Council of Jewish Women, joined other religious leaders in criticizing an immigration reform bill, written by a bi-partisan group of senators nicknamed the “Gang of Eight,” for not including religion or natural origin in its list of items banned as profiling.
