Faith Leader Letter Against Inhumane Border Policy

This week I joined other faith leaders in signing a letter which begins as follows:

"Dear Acting Secretary McAleenan:

"We are faith leaders from all across the country who are deeply troubled by the implementation of inhumane border policy by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Today we call on you to respect asylum law and protect the rights of asylum seekers and children.

"Walking alongside anyone who has had to leave their community is an expression of our faith in the world. We firmly believe that the treatment of children and families at our border is a moral issue, not a political one. The well-being and safety of children, including ensuring family unity and reunification, must be a priority. Therefore our faith communities are heartbroken by reports of children being held alone in filthy and inhumane conditions at our border."
