ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton has issued a statement in response to the Trump administration’s extension of the travel ban to the United States from seven majority Muslim countries to 13. “As Lutherans, these actions should concern us,” the statement read, in part.
“This expanded policy separates families from loved ones already here. Further, it prevents people–especially those escaping perilous or life-threatening situations in several of these nations–from coming to safety in the U.S. It does not enhance our safety or reflect our vocation as Christians.”
