Bread Statement on President Trump’s Immigration Plan

Washington, D.C. – Bread for the World has released the following statement regarding the immigration plan proposed by President Trump. The statement can be attributed to Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World: 

 “Bread for the World urges the administration and Congress to work together to develop comprehensive immigration reform legislation. It should include efforts to reduce the hunger and violence that often drive immigration. According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, hunger is a primary reason why many families from Central America are forced to flee their home countries. A pathway to citizenship for the “Dreamers” also needs to be part of immigration reform.

“Bread has developed six immigration reform principles, informed by our Christian faith, that can help to guide the development of reform legislation.”
