[21 de noviembre de 2014] La Obispa Presidente de la Iglesia Episcopal Katharine Jefferts Schori ha emitido la siguiente declaración sobre las políticas de inmigración recientemente anunciadas por el presidente Obama:

Junto con las familias y las comunidades de Estados Unidos, doy gracias por el anuncio del presidente Obama de que casi cinco millones de inmigrantes indocumentados pronto serán elegibles para el alivio de la amenaza de la deportación. Demasiadas familias han vivido durante mucho tiempo continuamente preocupadas porque los padres son separados de los hijos, los asalariados y los cuidadores de los que dependen de ellos, e incapaces de participar plenamente en sus comunidades y en la economía de la nación. Una reforma permanente e integral de nuestro quebrado sistema de inmigración mediante la acción del Congreso es todavía una necesidad urgente, pero la acción del Presidente es un paso constructivo hacia un sistema que honra la dignidad y el valor intrínseco de cada ser humano. Fortalecerá inmediatamente a las comunidades de nuestra nación al permitir que las familias de inmigrantes participen mucho más plenamente en la vida cívica y económica de Estados Unidos.

La Iglesia Episcopal trabajará con los líderes del Congreso y de la Casa Blanca para presionar en favor de la aplicación del plan del presidente lo más rápida, justa e inclusivamente que sea posible. El plan del Presidente no es perfecto. Algunas personas y familias que lo merecen son excluidas, lo que significa que queda trabajo adicional por delante. Todas las personas merecen por igual la capacidad de perseguir sus sueños y contribuir en sus comunidades y familias con libertad y dignidad. Rezo para que la decisión del Presidente conduzca a nuestra nación hacia un futuro en el que esas sagradas posibilidades están abiertas a todos.

[November 21, 2014] Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori has issued the following statement on President Obama’s recently announced immigration policies:

Together with families and communities across the United States, I give thanks for President Obama’s announcement that nearly five million undocumented immigrants will soon be eligible for relief from the threat of deportation. Too many families have lived for too long continually worried about parents being separated from children, wage-earners and caregivers from those who depend on them, and unable to participate fully in their communities and the nation’s economy. Permanent and comprehensive reform of our broken immigration system through congressional action is still urgently needed, but the President’s action is a constructive step toward a system that honors the dignity and intrinsic value of every human being. It will immediately strengthen our nation’s communities by allowing immigrant families much fuller participation in American civic and economic life.

The Episcopal Church will work with Congressional leaders and the White House to press for implementation of the President’s plan as quickly, fairly, and inclusively as possible. The President’s plan is not perfect. Some deserving persons and families are excluded, meaning that additional work lies ahead. All persons equally deserve the ability to pursue their dreams and contribute to their communities and families with liberty, dignity, and freedom. I pray that the President’s action will lead our nation toward a future in which those sacred possibilities are open to all.

The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori
