The Church on Immigration

“The church has the call to welcome the stranger
and proclaim that any division
between immigrant and native is erased;
there are no borders or boundaries for us
as followers of Jesus.
When institutions and agencies
side with the powers of the world,
the church is called to side with the oppressed,
the poor, stranger and the marginalized.
If we fail to do this, we fail to be the church."

Saulo Padilla, MCC U.S. Director for the Office on Immigration
