FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 18, 2016

 

Sojourners President and Founder Rev. Jim Wallis released the following statement today:

 

"Bridges or Walls?

 

"As Christians, we are called to answer:  What does God want us to build, bridges or walls?

 

"Donald Trump has never met a wall he doesn’t love.  He believes in border walls, in gated communities, in structures and policies that separate “us” from “them” – especially when “them” can be defined as immigrants or people of color or the poor.
