So often our political stances and polarizing discussions are void of personal story...
My oldest daughter is an immigrant who was granted American citizenship in 2015. Our process took over 2 years of extreme vetting, court dates and security checks...and we were lucky. For many (including refugees) it takes years to get through this process and all while displaced, hungry and often hopeless.
I am heartbroken at the widespread response that so quickly abandons our Christian principles to care for and love the widow, orphan and alien in exchange for a position of fear, entitlement and security... and abandonment of the American principle "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free..." •
Which immigrant or refugee story has impacted your thoughts?
