“It is easy to forget, when talking about a complex issue like immigration, rife with competing statistics used liberally by both sides of the debate, that we are essentially talking about human beings, each made in God’s image. C.S. Lewis reminds us that each human being–the foreign born certainly not excluded–is an immortal being with a destiny much greater than this life alone, and in this sense is ‘the holiest object presented to your senses.’ Our faith prohibits us from seeing any person as anything less than human and therefore sacred.”
