LIRS and ELCA Advocacy provide information on Security Screening of Refugees

Want information on the screening process for refugees entering the United States?  Our national friends at ELCA Advocacy and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services (LIRS) provided the following information on Refugee Resettlement in the United States and the Security Screening of Refugees Admitted to the United States. LIRS also issued a press release on refugee resettlement. The ELCA also issued an advocacy alert and a statement from Presiding Bishop Eaton.

ELCA Advocacy is the national public policy office of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.  The ELCA is one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States, with more than 3.7 million members in more than 9,300 congregations across the 50 states. There are more than 100,000 members of the ELCA in Texas. All three Texas synods of the ELCA are members of Texas Impact.

Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services (LIRS) is a collaboration of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod LC-MS, and the Latvian Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (LELCA).  Witnessing to God’s love for all people, we stand with and advocate for migrants and refugees, transforming communities through ministries of service and justice.
