Minute of the American Friends Service Committee AFSC Statement on Immigrant Detention

Friday, January 23, 2009 The Quaker vision of justice is grounded in our core belief that “there is that of God in everyone” and the Biblical call to welcome the stranger. Our vision, as it applies to immigration, draws on years of experience in international human rights work and with immigrant communities worldwide. Human migration is a global phenomenon driven by political, social and economic considerations that demand not just our attention, but our humanity and compassion. We are all God’s people, no matter our circumstances. 

AFSC Statement on CIR ASAP
