Topic: Immigration

The United Methodist Church’s Social Principles include this statement: “We recognize, embrace, and affirm all persons, regardless of country of origin, as members of the family of God. We affirm the right of all persons to equal opportunities for employment, access to housing, health care, education, and freedom from social discrimination. We urge the Church and society to recognize the gifts, contributions, and struggles of those who are immigrants and to advocate for justice for all.”

Amid mounting frustration on all sides of the issue, the 2008 General Conference called for comprehensive immigration reform in the United States.
