Immigration Reform

Based on scriptural understanding, the Minnesota Council of Churches supports comprehensive immigration reform.  The 24 members of the Council approved a policy statement on immigration that guides the Minnesota Council of Churches’ work with immigrants and refugees, as well as encourages its member churches to be more engaged in immigration.

Read the Immigration Policy Statement

In March 2010, 200,000 people rallied for immigration reform in Washington D.C. This video captures many faith leaders at the event talking about "Welcoming the Stranger," including MCC's Peg Chemberlin.

 

Church World Service has many resources for comprehensive immigration reform. No matter where your congregation 'is’ on immigration – new or unfamiliar with (even fearful), interested but needing more information, ready to advocate – Church World Service can help with free presentations geared to your interest. Church World Service works with individuals, single congregations, and community coalitions in ways, and with information, that respects your questions and concerns.  

For more information, contact Rev. John Guttermann, Minnesota Field Director, Church World Service, at 651-485-3104.
