Red or blue, pro or against, ban or sanctuary? Does our Christian tradition offer multiple ways to respond to the suffering immigrant neighbor, or just one? Is the United States a perfect land of opportunity and freedom, or is it a land that needs to examine its conscience, admit mistakes and resolve to do better? In this session, theologian Cecilia Gonzalez-Andrieu examines these complicated and fraught questions by the light of history and the contemporary situation, asking for a truly Christian response from people of good will everywhere in the world.
