ELCA Advocacy Alert
Our communities braced for nationwide raids by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in July 2019. The planned raids were reported to focus on 10 major cities where the Department of Justice had sped up immigration cases for thousands of recent arrivals.
Lutherans have a deep-rooted history in refugee and immigrant issues. One of every six Lutherans in the world was a refugee or displaced person after WWII. The God-given dignity in all people and value of family unity have been cornerstones of ELCA faith-based advocacy, and we understand that many immigrants, as well as their families, are both afraid and confused by these developments. Daily experience of ministries, Lutheran organizations and members “Keep before us – so that we do not forget – the grim realities many immigrants face and the strength of character and resourcefulness newcomers demonstrate,” notes the ELCA social message.
