The Church and Immigration

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

We are not healthy and well, as a culture, when we turn so angrily on the stranger, the immigrant, the so-called 'other.'  We miss the complex relationship between the American economy and immigration reform.  We miss the spiritual maturity required of thoughtful people.  Today, the governor of Arizona passed a draconian law essentially demonizing immigrants - legal and illegal - across her state.  Christians simply must speak out for better, wiser public policy.  And we must resist the politics of division and contempt.
