Website: Evangelical Immigration Table

Evangelical Immigration Table is an online place where evangelical Christians of various denomination, theological traditions, ethnicities and political perspectives can gather together to encourage distinctly Biblical thinking about issues of immigration.   Scores of prominent evangelical organizations and leaders have endorsed a statement of principles which reads as follows:

Our national immigration laws have created a moral, economic and political crisis in America.  Initiatives to remedy this crisis have led to polarization and name calling in which opponents have misrepresented each other’s position as open borders and amnesty versus deportation of millions.  This false choice has led to an unacceptable political stalemate at the federal level at a tragic human cost.  We urge our nation’s leaders to work together with the American people to pass immigration reform that embodies these key principles and that will make our nation proud:

*Respects the God-given dignity of every person

*Protects the unity of the immediate family

*Respects the rule of law

*Guarantees secure national borders

*Ensures fairness to taxpayers

*Establishes a path towards legal status and/or citizenship for those who quality and wish to become permanent residents
