This NAE video series draws evangelicals toward the biblical call to aid immigrants and refugees. The videos reframe the immigration conversation with empathy and compassion. Individuals share their unique stories of how they came to the United States and the importance of showing God’s love to every neighbor.
If you are moved by Scripture’s call and the testimonies of our brothers and sisters to advocate for our immigrant neighbors, please join us in taking action on the following items. Central to our Christian witness is a commitment to an integration of faith and the mind in ways that guide faithful action in our churches, communities and world.
Our national immigration laws have created a moral, economic and political crisis in America. Initiatives to remedy this crisis have led to polarization in which opponents have misrepresented positions as open borders and amnesty. This false choice has led to a political stalemate at the federal level at a tragic human cost. We urge our nation’s leaders to work together to pass immigration reform that embodies these key principles and will make our nation proud.Sign
Support Refugee Resettlement
President Biden announced his plan to resettle up to 125,000 refugees during FY 2022. In light of the unprecedented refugee crises, this will be lifesaving for refugees, inspiring to other countries, and clearly in our national interest. But it isn’t guaranteed that we will reach this ideal. Continued pressure on the administration is needed. Scripture calls us to defend the widow, orphan and refugee among us (Psalm 82:3—4). The time is now!Sign
Protect Afghan Allies
Our Afghan allies continue to live under grave threat. Working alongside U.S. military forces, they have risked their lives and that of their families throughout the nearly 20-year conflict to bring peace to the region. Now, with the Taliban takeover, we must honor this sacrifice by ensuring their safety through efforts to evacuate those left in the country, and provide aid and support for Afghanis starting over in a new nation.Sign
