Alabama Immigration Law Threatens Free Exercise of Religion

, | September 16, 2011

Alabama has passed a law that would make it a crime to knowingly assist an illegal immigrant by providing them a ride, a job, a place to live or any other kind of social assistance, including religious education. While a federal judge has temporarily blocked the law, EFJ shares an open letter from Archbishop Rodi of Mobile, Alabama, which outlines his concern that the law fundamentally threatens Christians’ ability to respond to Jesus’s call of compassion.
