Presbyterian leaders and partners hail president’s immigration orders
Article by Rich Copley for the Presbyterian News Service
Presbyterian leaders and partners are celebrating recent executive orders from President Joe Biden as positive and hopeful signs for refugee resettlement in the United States.
“With deep gratitude and relief,” Townley said in the article, “we applaud the new presidential executive order to ‘rebuild and expand’ refugee resettlement. Refugees strengthen our communities. Lowering the number of persons admitted to the U.S. has cost lives and opportunities. As interfaith leaders, we organized to tell stories, raise money, and sustain our Lansing area resettlement office.”
“This is the news for which we have been hoping and praying and advocating. And we have work to do for this new day.”
