The United States is a nation of immigrants. Yet, our laws prevent immigrants from using their God-given gifts to improve communities and grow the economy. Through our work with the Interfaith Immigration Coalition and other partners, we are articulating the biblical witness for immigration reform, demonstrating the human cost of inaction, and encouraging our political leaders to take action. By working together, we believe the faith community has a historic opportunity to help create a road map to citizenship for 11 million aspiring Americans. who wish to fully integrate and contribute to the social fabric of our nation.
