Scripture instructs us to "take every thought captive" to the authority of Christ as revealed to us in the Bible (2 Corinthians 10:5 ESV). By our own admission, though, few American Christians have given much thought to how our faith ought to inform our thinking about immigrants and immigration.

One man's story from being a legal immigrant to an illegal immigrant to a Green Card holder.

For many of us, the daily struggle of 11.7 million undocumented immigrants in the United States is not a very real wound in our hearts but rather an abstract piece of data in our heads. To paraphrase Joseph Stalin: ‘The distress of one undocumented person is a tragedy. The distress of millions is a statistic.’ Rather than weeping with those who weep, we are content simply to count them.
