I am called to see no one as “illegal.” I am called to walk with those who are being treated unjustly in our world. If we are unable to treat those who enter our land with love, grace, compassion and acceptance, we need to question who we are as a nation; we need to question our faith and wonder if we are truly following the teachings of the Divine through Jesus.
