Latin America bishops call on US to “love the stranger” in statement on immigration policies

Anglican and Episcopal bishops from six Latin American countries met in El Salvador last week to discuss what they warned were “anti-migrant, racist and discriminatory policies adopted by the United States’ authorities,” according to a joint statement released after the meeting.

The statement was signed by Bishop Juan David Alvarado, Diocese of El Salvador; Presiding Bishop Francisco Moreno, Primate of the Province of Mexico; Bishop Lloyd Allen, Diocese of Honduras; Bishop Julio Murray, Diocese of Panamá y Costa Rica; Bishop Philip Wright, Diocese of Belize; Bishop Benito Juárez, Diocese of Southeast Mexico, and Bishop Silvestre Romero, Diocese of Guatemala.

The meeting, from 31 January to 2 February, focused specifically on the Trump administration’s decisions to terminate Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, and the Central American Minors refugee program and to end Temporary Protected Status for some populations, including those from Haiti and El Salvador. Though the bishops’ statement doesn’t reference President Donald Trump by name, it says the bishops have reached out to the President and the US Congress, urging them to follow the biblical command to “love the stranger” as they search for just policies toward migrants.

The US-based Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations has information on Temporary Protected Status here and DACA here.
