1. Take a photo that shares how immigrants have blessed you
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.
I call on my congressional representative to
“Immigrants bring different worship styles to my church.”
“Immigrants bring restaurants with delicious foods.”
“Immigrants bring openness and different perspectives to our work.”
“Immigrants teach me and my family about different cultures.”
