Immigrants: Blessing Not Burden Online Pledge - CRC Office of Social Justice
Scripture teaches that immigrants are made in the image of God and that a faithful response to a stranger is to extend welcome. In the Bible, strangers are often used by God to bring blessing. I have experienced the blessing that immigrants bring to the U.S., my community, the church, and my life.
So when I hear immigrants described as burdens, I’m committed to change the conversation -- whether in my home, my church, or my congressional district. I commit to speak the truth: Immigrants are a blessing, not a burden.
