This issue of the Washington Memo explores how harsh immigration enforcement policies have impacted families, including a first-person story of a mother separated from her children. We also hear about how Mennonite Central Committee works with immigrants and how government policies can and must be changed to keep families together.
The immigration debate is often ugly, full of heated rhetoric and hateful speech. Beyond fear-mongering and misinformation, there is another factor driving the push for harsh enforcement of immigration law: profits.
The Hebrew prophets cried out against those who oppress the vulnerable to increase their own wealth, and we should do the same.
