We are alarmed by the way the U.S. Government is treating children and families at our border. This erosion of human rights is unacceptable. This is not who we are as a people. We are called by the gospel to help the least among us as citizens of this country.
As Christians, we are called to treat all humans with dignity regardless of their immigration status. Asylum seekers, refugees, and our immigrant brothers and sisters are being denied basic human dignity. The separation of children from their families is a human rights violation, an unjust nightmare that cannot continue in our name.
