On Whether 'they' should be called "Illegal Aliens" or "Undocumented Workers"

I call them "children of God."

Because, thank God, I am not a politician.

I am a Christian.

Absolutely, we can have different opinions about immigration policy.

But let us never forget that we are talking about people, people for whom Jesus died.

Yes, people created in the image of God, whether from another country, or the man/woman who robs us, or the horrible dictator of another country.

Amen!

(Unfortunately, there are far too many Christians who forget this. And we ought not to let them--or the politicians--off the hook about the "othering" they do. It's dangerous and sinful.)
