All God’s people deserve lives of health and dignity. Since our nation’s founding, millions of immigrants have come to the US seeking better lives for their families.
The Bible calls Christians to welcome the stranger and to care for the least as if they were our own. Undocumented immigrants are our neighbors, co-workers and friends. They strengthen our economy. They pay taxes. Their children are American citizens who dream the same dreams as our own. God hopes they, and all people, live thriving lives of abundance and peace with their families and friends in the place they call home.
Keeping parents with their children is something we can all support. We cannot let the poorest and most vulnerable be punished for our nation’s political deadlock on immigration reform.
