Christian Churches Call For Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Christian Churches Together, an organization of over 40 Christian church groups (Catholic, Orthodox, evangelical and main-line Protestant) last week issued a press release and Statement (full text) calling for comprehensive immigration law reform. The diverse group of Christian religious leaders agreed on the following principles:
  • An earned path to citizenship for the 11 million people in the United States without authorization.
  • The priority of family reunification in any immigration reform.
  • Protecting the integrity of our borders and protecting due process for immigrants and their families.
  • Improving refugee protection laws and asylum laws.
  • Reviewing international economic policies to address the root causes of unauthorized immigration.

Family Reunification is a religious crock. In no way do I support facilitating green cards for aunts, uncles, siblings, or parents until gays, lesbians and the unmarried have the right to green cards for their partners.

Furthermore, what we need in Amerika are more STEM-trained workers and fewer breeders.
