The Interfaith Immigration Coalition has prepared a statement outlining a platform on humane immigration reform. The statement will be presented to President Barack Obama's new administration and the 111th Congress.
Pastors and leaders from all faith traditions are invited to sign on to the letter. Julia Thorne, Manager for Immigration Issues/Immigration Counsel in the Office of the General Assembly, invites any Presbyterian pastor or elder or other leader interested in signing the statement to send her an email.
The Interfaith Immigration Coalition is a partnership of faith-based organizations committed to enacting fair and humane immigration reform that reflects our mandate to welcome the stranger and treat all human beings with dignity and respect. Coalition members work together to advocate for just and equitable immigration policies, educate faith communities, and serve immigrant populations around the country. Through this coalition, hundreds of national and local faith-based organizations and faith leaders have called on Congress and the Administration to enact immigration reform consistent with these values.
