The presiding bishop of the US-based Episcopal Church and the director of Episcopal Migration Ministries both spoke out in concern for the plight of refugees, in anticipation of President Donald Trump’s actions on immigration. In addition, the Episcopal Public Policy Network issued a policy alert offering Episcopalians ways to become advocates on immigration and refugees. Those efforts came on a day when President Trump signed executive orders to begin construction of a US-Mexico border wall and block federal grants from immigrant-protecting “sanctuary cities” – which refuse to deport undocumented immigrants.
