Immigration, Refugees, and Faith Traditions
Is the Movement of Refugees and Immigrants a Threat or an Opportunity? Why?
Europe in the 21st century has witnessed the great migration of refugees from violence in the Middle East and north Africa, and the United States continues to wrestle with how to deal with immigrants from south and central America.
National borders, cultural stability, labor demands, and pure human suffering all come together in a great Gordian knot. Brexit is, in part, a result of these concerns.
What does your faith perspective teach you about refugees? How do your politics and your religious convictions come together to inform policy and shape your attitude?
