Yesterday Mennonite Central Committee U.S. issued a call to welcome immigrants and refugees, decrying the executive actions taken by the president this week.

Read the statement and consider taking action:

  1. Call the White House and your members of Congress.
  2. Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Sample text is available here.

Join us in response to Christ’s welcoming call.

    Maybe MCC should issue a call decrying The endless illegal US led war’s of aggression that led to this current refugee crisis. How many innocent people have died as a result of the Clinton/Bush/Obama neoconservative agenda? If Trump continues this slaughter he should also be held accountable.
