Washington, D.C.– Today, Bread for the World expressed dismay that the Supreme Court deadlocked in U.S. v. Texas. This indecision means that as many as five million people will not be able to legally work in the United States, and are now at risk of deportation and being separated from their families.
The following statement can be attributed to Jose Garcia, director of Church Relations at Bread for the World:
“The Supreme Court’s indecision today places millions of people at the brink of hunger and poverty in our nation. Immigrant children and their parents suffer from food insecurity at a higher rate than the general population. Bread for the World’s work on immigration reform is rooted in the affirmation that all men and women are created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-28).
“As Christians involved with Bread for the World, we believe that no person differs from any other. Therefore, we were expecting a Supreme Court decision that affirms the dignity of the families who could benefit from DACA and DAPA and helps lift people out of poverty.
“Bread for the world will continue to advocate for national immigration reform that contributes to the reduction of poverty and hunger internationally.”
These fact sheets provide a snapshot of hunger and poverty in the United States and in each state plus Washington, D.C.
Conflict is a main driver of the recent increase in hunger around the world and of forced migration. Hunger also contributes to conflict.

In 2017, 11.8 percent of households in the U.S.—40 million people—were food-insecure, meaning that they were unsure at some point during the year about how they would provide for their next meal.
Unnecessarily long prison sentences, combined with the lack of rehabilitative programs for people in prison, exacerbate hunger, poverty, and existing inequalities.
Overly harsh mandatory minimum prison sentences have contributed to the rapid increase of our country’s prison population. The...
