Engaging the heart and mind to resolve America s problem with illegal immigration.
America is a nation of immigrants. The United States has for centuries offered freedom and opportunity to beleaguered people from around the world. But the recent influx of many millions of illegal immigrants demands a response from the nation s political leaders. A CHRISTIANITY TODAY editorial argues that wise policy will meet these concerns and welcome immigrants, many of whom display tremendous courage and faith.
How does stereotyping obscure Christian love? What kind of guidance does the Bible give about immigration? What is God s standard for loving strangers? How does the Bible guide public policy?
