Immigration Reform: A Moral Responsibility
Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions recently said there is no, “moral or legal responsibility to reward somebody who entered the country [without documentation].” His comment ignores the fact that any path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants is likely to involve fines and penalties. As Christians we have a clear, moral responsibility to care about every child of God regardless of their documentation status.
Immigration reform is not about politics. It is about the biblical call to welcome the stranger and care for the least of these. We have a moral responsibility to fix the broken immigration system that is hurting our brothers and sisters. Both Republicans and Democrats agree that a solution should include a road-map to citizenship for the 11 million aspiring Americans who are contributing to our society.
