  • Call on Congress: Act on Immigration Reform Now


    By Carol Blythe

    In our statement on immigration, the Alliance of Baptists states in part: . . . . the Church is called to rise in unequivocal defense of the stranger, the sojourner, the widow and

    orphan, and our most vulnerable neighbors. . . . In light of the highest political ideals grounded in justice, equality and freedom, our nation’s official treatment of immigrants continues to be a grave affront to the mandates of Christian faith. . . Our faith-inspired legacy calls us to reexamine our immigration policies and services in light of the current situation, and to work for swift federal reform that is humane, just and sustainable.

    June 28, 2014 will mark the one-year anniversary since the Senate passed a comprehensive immigration reform bill. But so far, the House of Representatives has done NOTHING on immigration. Immigration activists also ask President Obama to take immediate and aggressive action on administrative relief for families who face the pain of separation because of the inaction by Congress.
