Atlanta churches join in rebuke of federal immigration policy

From Atlanta-

Joining other churches in the Atlanta area, the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church (IHM) and the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany (ECE) have published rebukes of President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.

The IHM statement from Father Javier Muñoz states that the “the separation of immigrant children from their parents is countenanced, much less embraced, by anyone in our nation demonstrates how far we have fallen in common decency and respect for the human person.”

Although the current administration has recently shifted its immigration policies and is no longer separating families, many groups still believe that it is not enough.

“As I told our United States Senators, my representative and the White House when I contacted them last week: A letter like this should not have to be written,” the pastor wrote.
