As we approach the August recess of Congress, there’s never been a more important time for immigration reform activists to make their voices heard. In this week’s Top Picks, I’d especially like to highlight a post by Benjamin Corey on biblical hospitality, as well as Walter Ewing’s take on the House border security hearing.
- The Evangelical Immigration Table recently gathered hundreds of leaders at the U.S. Capitol to demonstrate the “Moral Urgency of Immigration Reform,” as Jim Wallis recounts for Sojourners.
- Benjamin Corey, also writing for Sojourners, examines how we need to recommit to “True Biblical Hospitality: Loving Immigrants, Strangers, and Enemies.”
- America’s voice offers some good news in “Getting to a Majority: More House Republicans Come Out for Citizenship.”
- Walter Ewing describes the July 23 House hearing on border security in his Immigration Impact piece, “Hearing Highlights Similarities Between Senate Immigration Bill and House Border Bill.”
Please email me or comment if you have any thoughts about this week’s Top Picks. Thank you for taking the time to visit our blog, and I look forward to share with you the best online commentary on immigration and refugee issues.
