Last week, the largest detention center in the United States opened. The 50-acre center, located in Dilley, TX, will hold up to 2,400 migrants who have crossed the border illegally and is especially designed to hold women and children. This week, Christians around the world are engaged in the retelling of the story of Jesus’ birth. What can the Prince of Peace’s birth teach us about the politics of immigration reform? How should we respond to these children at our nation’s border?
Jesus tells us that a response to the most vulnerable is a response to Jesus himself (Matthew 25:40). Would we detain the Holy Family and treat them as if they were terrorists, rather than refugees? Please share this infographic on Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms to give us hope for the future of all the oppressed immigrants who find themselves strangers in a strange land.
