Despite inaction by the President and congressional representatives, people of faith across the country continue to support migrants and refugees. This week I’d like to highlight two pieces from Sojourners that set two examples of how the faith community provides the right kind of welcome for migrants and refugees looking for safety and security.
- Churches across America continue to Revive the Sanctuary Movement, Welcoming the Stranger (Even If It’s Against the Law) as our faith has called us to, Sojourners Kaeley McEvoy and Shane Claiborne tell us.
- Proposed Refugee Program Limited in Central American Impact, writes Immigration Impact’s Amy Grenier.
- After California passed legislation paving the way for undocumented migrants to obtain drivers licenses, Immigration Impact’s Amanda Peterson Beadle asks Could New Jersey Be Next?
- These three Latinas who are aspiring Americans have their lives put on hold while they deal with The Threat of Deportation, the NCLR Blog reports.
Please email me or comment if you have any thoughts about this week’s Top Picks. Thank you for taking the time to visit this blog, and I look forward to sharing the best online commentary on immigration and refugee issues.
