Being "Illegal" Is a title that men have given to certain people who did not meet the paperwork but their title as "Children of God" Remains the same.
The church will always support immigrants because the church itself is comprised of a lot of immigrants and the Latin American church is huge. It will be counter productive for the church to be seeking to enforce immigrant laws against its own members.
Immigration is a complex and sometimes divisive issue. As we have stated before, we believe that our first priority is to love and care for one another as Jesus Christ taught. Each nation must determine and administer its policies related to immigration. The Church does not advocate any specific legislative or executive solution. Our hope is that, in whatever solution emerges, there is provision for strengthening families and keeping them together. We also acknowledge that every nation has the right to enforce its laws and secure its borders and that all persons subject to a nation's laws are accountable for their acts in relation to them.
