No Human is Illegal
June 1, 2018 — We reject Mr. Trump’s statement of May 16, 2018 about immigrants, in which he said that immigrants coming from Central America and Mexico are not people, but animals. Mr. Trump’s characterization of a group of people as subhuman distorts this nation’s moral sense, provides a rationale for mistreating immigrants and other people coded as “other,” and dehumanizes all of us as fellow human beings made in the image of God. As theological educators, we reject this disparaging language as detrimental for the common good of this country and of God’s creation.
