Does morality inform immigration discussions?

I’m having trouble carving out enough time to do a well-researched post. There are hundreds of articles to comb through and stories to tell, and sometimes I get overwhelmed by them. Okay, actually, I get constantly overwhelmed by them.

While I’m not a Unitarian Universalist per se, I have spent some time in a congregation in Norman, OK, and I loved it. I say that because this particular page, Immigration as a Moral Issue, expressed my sentiments and views, and I want very much to share it with you all so you understand where I’m coming from and why.

I understand that immigration is also a legal issue, a financial issue and a security issue, and all aspects of the topic should be discussed ad nauseam. Unfortunately, it’s also an issue involving prejudices and stereotypes for some people, and I hate that those aspects enter so many of the comments on the news stories that I read. For me, all aspects of the topic center around the fact that it is a moral issue, and that is what I want to bring to every discussion.
