We are a community of Christians who believe every human being is made in God’s image and has inherent dignity. We are a community who believes that immigrants are integral members of our society and that we are better together. We recognize that too often our immigration policies are not shaped by the values that the church upholds. Scripture teaches this truth: immigrants are a blessing, not a burden. We feel called to change the conversation.
Misunderstandings about immigrants and how our immigration system works can quickly inform public policy. We need to ensure that our immigration laws are based on facts and truth, not the myth that immigrants are a burden to our economy and society.
