“Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.” -Hebrews 13:2

Nearly 50% of white evangelicals believe that immigrants are a drain on the U.S. economy. We have seen the richness that immigrants have brought -- not just economic, but cultural.

More than half of Evangelicals believe that an increase in immigrants will threaten American values. We believe that most immigrants reflect the best of American values: ingenuity, community pride, strong families, hard work, deep faith.

So far, the upcoming 2016 presidential campaign has been the most anti-immigrant in its rhetoric since the 1850s. We believe that America is a nation of immigrants, and that immigrants deserve respect.

We are a community of Christians who are not seeing Christian teaching or values represented in our churches, communities, and politics when it comes to immigrants. Scripture teaches this truth: Immigrants are a blessing, not a burden. We feel called to change the conversation.
