Economics of Immigration
May 23, 2019
Over the past few weeks, the Evangelical Immigration Table has been rolling out a series of new short videos, each of which includes evangelical leaders discussing a principle that we believe should inform U.S. immigration policy. This week’s video examines the economics of immigration.
As Christians, our approach to immigrants and to immigration policy is informed first and foremost by our belief that immigrants, like all people, are made in God’s image with inherent dignity. But immigration policy also should be fair, particularly to those who pay taxes within the United States, both citizens and immigrants.
As the national debates over immigration policy continue, I encourage you to view and share our new videos and our new free e-book, Thinking Biblically about Immigrants and Immigration Reform. And, I’d also ask that you continue to pray with us:
- For wisdom for all of our elected officials, that they would pursue reforms that reflect biblical values of fairness and compassion
- That God would provide each person – citizen and immigrant alike, as well as those outside the U.S. who might contemplate the idea of migration – with their basic needs
- That the Church in the U.S. would earn the reputation as a community that stands with those who are vulnerable, including immigrants
