SojoAction: Immigration

Sandy Ovalle
Immigration Campaign Coordinator

The movement of people is as natural as the flow of water. In harmony with creation and the native people of the land people have the right to migrate whether for survival or flourishing.

Sojourners immigration advocacy centers around honoring the God-given dignity of every person, protecting family unity, and promoting thriving communities.

El movimiento humano es tan natural como el flujo del agua. En harmonía con la creación y los pueblos originarios de una tierra, la gente tiene el derecho a migrar ya sea para sobrevivir o florecer.

Sojourners centra sus esfuerzos de defensoría de inmigración en honrar la dignidad dada por Dios a cada persona, proteger la unidad familiar y crear comunidades prósperas.

Our Work

While a number of churches engaged in sanctuary efforts throughout the 2000s, a new resurgence of the movement emerged around 2016 after deportation priorities shifted. There are now at least 35 public cases of sanctuary. This film documents the stories of Minerva García and Eliseo Jimenez, the congregations that received them, and the many branches of the sanctuary movement.
Contact the president and Congress to demand that the government be more transparent about the waiver process and the number of immigrants who actually benefit from this process. As people of faith, we cannot ignore the biblical call to welcome the stranger and care for the most vulnerable among us.
