"Christians concerned about vulnerable immigrants have called laws like Arizona’s SB 1070 immoral and now the Supreme Court has declared those laws unconstitutional. Our national immigration system is broken, and a patchwork of harsh state-level immigration laws isn’t the way to fix it. The decision to strike down key provisions of this legislation is a victory for everyone in the faith community who seeks to follow the Bible’s call for concern for the vulnerable and “stranger” among us.
"Arizona’s immoral legislation threatened families, harmed children, and made it difficult for law enforcement to safeguard the communities they swore to protect; it remains important to ensure that any remaining parts of the legislation are never used to justify racial profiling by local police.
"Earlier this month, nearly 150 evangelical leaders set aside their own political differences to endorse basic moral principles that should guide immigration reform. We called for Congress to put away the partisan talking points, end the political games, and find a common-ground solution that fixes America’s broken immigration system: now they should act."
