Why the Episcopal Church supports immigration bill

Why the Episcopal Church supports immigration bill

This week, the Senate will vote on S.744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act. According to an alert released today by the Episcopal Public Policy Network: “Without these legislative changes our friends, family members and neighbors will continue to face separation from their families, unprecedented levels of detention and deportation, minimal due process protections or protections from unscrupulous employers, and they will be forced to remain in the shadows with no relief in sight.

Supporting this bill allows us to take a step forward in our march towards a just and compassionate immigration system- a step that allows millions of our immigrant brothers and sisters to emerge from the shadows and join us in this pursuit.”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
