TN Faith Leaders Speak to Immigration Campaign Rhetoric

Statement on Immigration by Tennessee Faith Leaders

February 13, 2012

Dear Presidential Candidates:

We are faith leaders in Tennessee who share the goal to advance the common good. We teach the Golden Rule and seek to treat others as we would want to be treated. We believe all people of faith and goodwill must welcome the stranger, protect the vulnerable and seek justice for the poor.

As such, we have taken a number of initiatives to address the issue of immigration, challenging the negative and untruthful narratives that generate bigotry and falsehoods. We have spoken about our responsibility to minister to the undocumented without prejudice.

We respect the rule of law. We also know that at times the rule of law results in unjust law. For example, segregation was perfectly legal, but reflective of unjust law. The internment of Japanese Americans was perfectly legal, but reflective of unjust law. Denying women the right to vote was perfectly legal, but reflective of unjust law. We are concerned that campaign rhetoric may result in unjust laws for the undocumented.

We are dismayed by the destructive discourse of American politics in general and toward the undocumented in particular. We think that the heated nature of campaigns that deny the undocumented their human rights, demonize an entire class of human beings as criminals and deliver unworkable and unjust solutions robs the public square of much needed civility and harms society's efforts to find common ground to advance the common good.

As Tennessee faith leaders, we are writing to you in advance of the Tennessee Republican presidential primary on March 6, 2012, with a simple but urgent plea:

Please keep the highly charged and negative campaign rhetoric, advertisements and promises on immigration out of Tennessee.

Please do not inject our state with the language of "illegals," the unworkable ideas of deporting millions of individuals and thereby destroying families, and the heated claims that characterize the undocumented and their children as a class of criminals.

While our letter is addressed to you at this time given the nature of the primary campaign, our deep concern applies to all candidates and campaigns this year.

With the words of President Abraham Lincoln, we hope and pray that your campaign in Tennessee will touch "the better angels of our nature."
